BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) Emily Cady had 22 points and 12 rebounds and freshman Natalie Romeo made four free throws in the final 29 seconds to help No. 21 Nebraska hold on for a 67-64 win over Indiana on Saturday.

Nebraska led 63-54 when Brandi Jeffery scored with 5:11 left in the game but the Cornhuskers did not score again until Romeo's first two free throws, which pushed the score to 65-61. Larryn Brooks then knocked down a 3-pointer from the right wing but Romeo responded with two more free throws at 12 seconds.

Indiana's contested 3 from the top of the key at the buzzer did not hit the rim.

The Huskers (19-8, 9-7) were without All-Big Ten and honorable mention All-American point guard Rachel Theriot (16.5 ppg, 5.2 apg), who underwent season-ending surgery on Thursday after injuring an ankle in practice on Feb. 3.

Brooks led the Hoosiers (14-13, 4-12) with 17 points and Jess Walter had 16.
