Iowa City - Freshman Leigha Brown scored a career-high 20 points, including six in the final 3:30, to help Nebraska rally from a 12-point deficit to cut the margin to two with 26.8 seconds left, but No. 19 Iowa hung on for a 77-71 women's basketball win at Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Thursday night.

Brown, a 6-1 wing from Auburn, Ind., scored 20 points in just 19 minutes, while junior guard Hannah Whitish pitched in 14 points, including five points in Nebraska's furious rally in the closing minutes. Freshman Sam Haiby added three of her nine points in a three-minute stretch where the Huskers scored 14 points to cut a 69-57 deficit to just 73-71 with 26.8 seconds left.

Nebraska slipped to 7-7 overall and 2-1 in the Big Ten, while Iowa improved to 10-3 overall and 1-1 in the conference.

Senior All-American Megan Gustafson led Iowa with 28 points and 17 rebounds but the 80 percent free throw shooter missed four free throws in the game's final 11 minutes that could have put Nebraska away. However, she drew 12 fouls on the Huskers in the game.

Fellow senior Hannah Stewart made the game's biggest plays for the Hawkeyes with a pair of offensive rebounds on missed free throws by teammates Tania Davis and Alexis Sevillian in the final 30 seconds that allowed Iowa to push the lead back to two possessions. Stewart finished with 14 points and four boards on the night. Davis, another senior, added 11 points, while junior point guard Kathleen Doyle pitched in 11 points and nine assists. However turnovers and fouls by Doyle and Davis late in the game allowed Nebraska to fight its way back into a one-possession game in the final minute.

Nebraska hung with the Hawkeyes despite shooting just 38.7 percent (24-62) on the night. The Huskers did hit 42.9 percent (9-21) of its threes and 14-of-17 free throws (.824). The two teams both committed 17 turnovers, but Nebraska won the battle of the boards, 41-36. However, Nebraska outscored Iowa 16-5 on second-chance points in the game, even though both teams had 11 offensive boards.

Iowa, one of the nation's top scoring offenses, hit 49.2 percent (30-61) of its shots from the field, including 4-of-12 threes. One of the nation's top free throw shooting teams, hit just 65 percent (13-20) of its free throws.

In a back-and-forth first half, Nebraska trailed 37-34 at halftime as Gustafson scored the final four points of the second quarter over the final 1:20.

Nebraska jumped to a 6-0 lead in the game with back-to-back three-pointers from Whitish and Taylor Kissinger, before Iowa answered with a 13-2 surge in a 2:13 span to give the Hawkeyes a 13-8 lead at the first media timeout.

Nebraska responded with 12 points off the bench from freshmen Ashtyn Veerbeek, Haiby, Kayla Mershon and Leigha Brown, who hit a pair of threes, to trim the Iowa margin to 22-20 at the end of the first quarter. Veerbeek, an Iowa native, finished with six points and a team-high nine rebounds in the game.

The Hawkeyes stretched the edge back to 25-20 to open the second quarter before the Big Red answered with an 8-0 run over the next 4:30. Maddie Simon started the run with a three-pointer, before Kate Cain added a traditional three-point play. Brown capped the run to give Nebraska 28-25 lead at the media break in the quarter. Brown finished the half with a team-high eight points. The Huskers maintained a 34-33 lead after a Whitish layup, before Gustafson closed the half for the Hawkeyes. Whitish closed the half with seven points to help the Big Red.

Nebraska hit 40.6 percent (13-32) of its shots in the half, including 5-of-9 three-pointers (.556) and all three of its free throw attempts. The Huskers lost the first-half turnover battle 9-8 and the war on the boards, 19-17. However, the Huskers outscored Iowa 8-2 in second-chance points and 11-7 in points off turnovers.

Iowa hit 48.8 percent (16-33) of its first-half shots, including 4-of-8 threes. The Hawkeyes went just 1-for-2 at the line. Gustafson led the Hawkeyes with 12 points and nine rebounds in the half, while Davis added 10 points.

Nebraska regained the lead to start the third quarter and took a 43-39 lead with 8:12 left in the period on Nicea Eliely's three-pointer. But the Hawkeyes got 10 straight points from Gustafson in the final 2:48 of the quarter to outscore Nebraska 10-3 down the stretch and take a 59-49 lead to the fourth.

Nebraska returns to Big Ten Conference home action next week, when the Huskers take on No. 4 Maryland on Tuesday, Jan. 8. Tip-off between the Big Red and the Terrapins is set for 7 p.m. with tickets available now at Huskers.com.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Jalen Smith made a driving layup with 3.8 seconds left to break a tie, and Maryland used a late push to get past No. 24 Nebraska 74-72 on Wednesday night.
Bruno Fernando had 18 points and 17 rebounds, Anthony Cowan Jr. scored 19 points and Smith accounted for Maryland's final seven points to finish with 15.
Maryland (11-3, 2-1 Big Ten) trailed 71-70 before Smith made a follow-shot off a 3-point try by Cowan with 28 seconds left. After James Palmer converted 1 of 2 free throws for Nebraska, Smith drove the middle of the lane for his decisive layup.
Following a timeout, Nebraska (11-3, 1-2) tried to work the ball up the court before Ricky Lindo Jr. knocked away a pass under the basket.
Palmer scored 26 points and Glynn Watson Jr. added 12 for the Cornhuskers, whose four-game winning streak ended.
The final minutes went back and forth, with neither team able to take charge.
After a three-point play by Smith put the Terps ahead 70-67 with 2:42 left, Watson made two free throws and Palmer turned a steal into a dunk for a 71-70 lead with 2:13 remaining.
That would be the last time Nebraska was in front.
The game was tied early in the second half before Maryland missed eight straight shots over a four-minute span while falling behind 47-39.
Fernando ended the drought with a layup and made another before Aaron Wiggins and Cowan drilled 3-pointers to cap a 10-2 run that tied it at 49 with 12 minutes left.
Neither team led by more than four points the rest of the way.
Getting 13 points from Palmer and sinking six shots from beyond the arc, Nebraska built a 39-35 halftime lead.
After Maryland used a 9-0 run to move in front 33-29, the Cornhuskers closed the half with a 10-2 spurt.
DEFENSE RULES
The Cornhuskers limited Maryland to 28-for-60 shooting. It was the 38th time in 39 games Nebraska's opponent failed to exceed 50 percent, dating to last season. Minnesota topped 50 percent on Dec. 5 in an 85-78 victory.
BIG PICTURE
Nebraska: Playing on the road in a loud arena, the Cornhuskers gave a tough Maryland team everything it could handle. It was a vast improvement from Nebraska's other Big Ten game on the road against Minnesota in December.
Maryland: This was the biggest win of the year for the Terrapins, who previously lost at Purdue and at home against Seton Hall.
UP NEXT
Nebraska faces Iowa on the road Sunday.
Maryland travels to Rutgers on Saturday. The Terps are 6-0 against the Scarlet Knights since joining the Big Ten in 2014.

Grand Island, NE - According to the transaction list on the offical IFL website (goifl.com) the Nebraska Danger indoor football team has signed former Nebraska Cornhusker quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. Armstrong had looks in the NFL including a short stint with the Minnesota Vikings but was later waived. According to Armstrongs twitter page in September he had signed with the Salt Lake Stallions of the Alliance of American Football league for the 2019 season. It is unknown at this time what the reason was for the two parties not moving forward with Armstrong may of been. Armstrong at Nebraska as a dual threat quarterback had 67 total passing touchdowns, 91 total touchdowns, 8,871 total passing yards, and 10,690 total yards of offense. He is the all time leader at the University of Nebraska for total passing yards, total offensive yards, total passing touchdowns, and total touchdowns.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — John Elway is looking for his fourth head coach in six seasons after firing Vance Joseph for presiding over the Denver Broncos' worst two-year stretch since the late 1960s.
Elway acknowledged being part of the problem in the Broncos' 20-28 record since their Super Bowl 50 parade, including 11-21 under Joseph.
"The first guy I look at is the guy in the mirror," Elway said Monday. "And I'm just as responsible for this, if not more, than anybody else because it's my job to make sure that we win more football games. And so I take full responsibility for that."
It was Joseph who took the fall, however, fired with two years and $6 million left on his contract.
"Vance is a good man. He worked his tail off," Elway said. "And unfortunately, we didn't get it done. We didn't win enough football games and ultimately that's what we have to do."
Elway almost fired Joseph last year after a 5-11 debacle but gave him a second chance. He got no similar reprieve after going 6-10.
"It's disappointing not being able to finish what we started, but I'm incredibly proud of the players and coaches for how they fought and worked every week," Joseph said in a statement. "I also appreciate the support staffs who put in countless hours behind the scenes helping our team. This is a special place with great fans."
The Broncos immediately sought permission to interview Steelers offensive line coach and former Titans head coach Mike Munchak, Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio and Patriots defensive coordinator Brian Flores, among others.
"I will continue to do the best I can, knowing we're going to try to win football games. We're going to compete for world championships," Elway said. "That's what I'm about. I hate to lose. I hate it more now than I ever have. And we're going to do everything we can to get us back on track ... and get us back to completing for world championships."
Elway said the franchise's winningest coach, Mike Shanahan, whom he considered re-hiring a year ago, isn't in the mix this time around. Nor is former Broncos assistant Adam Gase, who was fired by Miami.
Elway indicated that Gary Kubiak, his senior personnel adviser, might move back onto the field as an offensive assistant for the new coach. Kubiak stepped down two years ago over health concerns 11 months after leading the franchise to its third Super Bowl victory.
Elway insisted the Broncos' opening is just as attractive today as it was then, when Joseph called the opportunity the best in football because it required a reboot and not a rebuild.
Yet the Broncos didn't innovate as quickly as other teams that incorporated more of their prospects' college DNA into their playbooks, like the AFC West rival Kansas City Chiefs with Patrick Mahomes and the Baltimore Ravens with Lamar Jackson.
"I think we just haven't evolved here," star cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said. "I think after the Super Bowl we kind of just got stagnant. We haven't evolved. We've got to figure out how we can evolve on offense, defense, special teams and everything, get better as players. We have to evolve with the times of the NFL. We're behind right now."
The Broncos are mired in a three-year playoff drought. They lack a franchise quarterback like the ones the Packers, Browns and Jets have in place to help them lure their next head coach. They haven't had a title sponsor for their stadium for several seasons. And they need a massive makeover to modernize a jalopy of an offense.
Team president Joe Ellis insisted there was ownership stability even as a family feud has gone public with Pat Bowlen's children haggling over the future of the franchise while their father, who has Alzheimer's, comes up for a possible Hall of Fame election Feb. 2.
Then there's Elway, a hands-on, high-standard GM with a Hall of Fame gold jacket who has little patience for losing, tried to hire Shanahan a year ago and didn't cut Joseph any slack after trading away perennial Pro Bowlers Aqib Talib and Demaryius Thomas.
"Vance was on board with every decision that we made. It wasn't one where I was going off and saying, 'We're doing this,'" Elway said. "The decisions that were made were joint decisions, so we'll leave it at that."
With journeyman Case Keenum at quarterback, the Broncos' top selling point from a player perspective is probably the league's top pass-rushing duo of Von Miller and Bradley Chubb, who combined for 26½ sacks.
"I'd like to think that I'm a coach's dream," Miller said. "We've got a lot of big-time players here. We've got Bradley Chubb, who's coming into his second year. Denver's a great city. Denver's a great place to come coach. It's a great franchise to be a part of, known for winning and all types of wonderful stuff.
"So, I think the Denver Broncos organization will be the main attraction for the next head coach."
Elway concurred, suggesting, "People may disagree, but we're not that far off."

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Ty-Shon Alexander scored 18 points and Mitch Ballock added 17, including five of Creighton's 13 3-pointers, to help the Bluejays beat Providence 79-68 Monday in the Big East opener for both teams.
Martin Krampelj had 16 points and nine rebounds and Marcus Zegarowski scored 10 of his 12 points in the second half for Creighton (10-4). The Bluejays have won three in a row.
Alpha Diallo made a jumper to give the Friars (10-4) a 48-46 lead with 12:55 to play but six different Bluejays combined to hit seven 3-pointers in the next seven minutes and Creighton took an 11-point lead — the biggest by either team — when Davion Mintz made two free throws with 5:17 remaining. Maliek White's layup trimmed Providence's deficit to 73-66 with 1:23 left but the Bluejays made 6-of-6 free throws from there to seal it.
Diallo had 18 points and 10 rebounds — his 11th career double-double and fifth of the season — for the Friars, who had their three-game win streak snapped. White scored 13 points, David Duke added 11 and Makai Ashton-Langford 10.
