    LINCOLN, Neb. -- Jordan Hooper recorded her Big Ten-leading ninth double-double with 22 points and 15 rebounds, and Nebraska (No. 21 ESPN/USA Today, No. 19 AP) held off Iowa's late comeback attempt for a 60-53 victory Thursday night.

    Lindsey Moore added 15 points for the Cornhuskers (17-3, 6-2). Jaime Printy had 17 points, Kamille Wahlin 11 and Samantha Logic 10 for the Hawkeyes (11-10, 3-5).

    Nebraska led 30-17 at the break but went almost 11 minutes between field goals in the second half, allowing Iowa to storm back from a 13-point deficit with less than 10 minutes to play.

    Emily Cady scored after the Hawkeyes had pulled to 52-51 with 3:10 left, and Kaitlyn Burke made it 57-51 when she hit a 3-pointer just before the shot clock expired.

    Hooper came down with her career-high 15th rebound after Wahlin missed a long shot, and Lindsey Moore hit a free throw to make it a seven-point game with 30 seconds left.

    Nebraska, which won 77-72 in Iowa City on Jan. 8, swept the season series.

    Hooper's 3-pointer started a 20-3 burst that turned Nebraska's 14-10 deficit into a 13-point halftime lead. The Hawkeyes went 12½ minutes without a field goal, missing 13 straight shots and committing seven turnovers in their lowest-scoring half of the season.

    Hooper loomed large on two straight sequences during the run. She ripped away an offensive rebound after Moore's 3-point try went long off the rim and zipped the ball along the baseline to Hailiie Sample, who swung it to Jeffery on the wing for a 3-pointer. Then Hooper knocked down a 3-pointer from the top of the key with the 6-foot-5 Morgan Johnson in her face.

    The Hawkeyes shot just 21 percent and committed 13 of their 20 turnovers in the first half.

    Printy, who scorched Nebraska for 27 points in the teams' first meeting and is averaging a team-leading 19 points, was held to two points in the first half on 1-of-8 shooting.

    She scored 15 in the second half and nearly took over the game. She got Iowa within 46-42 when she hit a 3-pointer and converted a three-point play on consecutive possessions.

    The Huskers struggled against Iowa's zone defense in the second half and finished shooting a season-low 32.1 percent.

    Iowa improved to 39.3 percent in the second half and ended at 30.8 percent.
