Lindsey Moore scored 21 points, but it was not enough to prevent the No. 15 Nebraska women's basketball team from falling 60-55 at South Dakota State on Sunday afternoon.

Moore hit 6-of-13 shots from the field, including 3-of-6 three-pointers while adding 6-of-8 free throws, five assists and four rebounds. Jordan Hooper had 15 points and seven boards, but the rest of the Huskers (3-1) managed just 19 points against a stingy and disciplined Jackrabbit team.

Ashley Eide answered the production by Moore and Hooper with a game-high 26 points and four steals. Eide hit 10-of-17 shots from the field and 5-of-6 free throws. She scored 13 points in each half as the only Jack in double figures.

South Dakota State (2-2) controlled the glass 38-27 against an NU squad that entered the game with a plus-8.0 rebound margin through the first three games. "The biggest stat of the day was obviously the rebounding," said Nebraska coach Connie Yori. "I thought they were the most physical team and they wanted it more than we did today."
