FINAL BOX SCORE Quotes Alison Lacey on Nebraska’s defense… “They were always in your face. Someone was always guarding you tight. They were a really good defensive help team. Sometimes I think that we just missed some easy baskets that we should be making.”

Lacey on the rest of the year… “We could win or lose any game that we go into.”

With the loss, Iowa State dropped to 12-2 on the season and the Cyclones are now 0-1 in Big 12 Conference play. The Cyclones will travel to take on 10th ranked Texas A&M on Wednesday.
