    LINCOLN, Neb. -- EeTisha Riddle scored 14 of her 16 points in the second half to lead Missouri to a 65-53 win over Nebraska (No. 20 ESPN/USA Today, No. 19 AP) on Saturday.

    But the Tigers answered with a 12-2 spurt to seal the win. Carlynn Savant's 3-pointer with 1:51 left put Missouri up eight with 1:51 remaining, and Edwards' short jumper gave the Tigers a 60-50 lead with 1:01 left.
