COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Jordan Hooper certainly wants to help Nebraska go as far as possible in the NCAA tournament.But perhaps more than that, the junior wants to keep playing to prolong the career of her best friend and teammate, senior Lindsey Moore.Hooper scored 21 points and Moore had 20 points and a season-high 10 assists to lead Nebraska to a 74-63 win over Texas A&M on Monday night in the second round of the NCAA tournament.As the final buzzer sounded the pair found each other and stood frozen in a long embrace immune to the frenzy surrounding them, savoring their victory."Jordan doesn't want our season to end, because she won't get to play with Lindsey again," Nebraska coach Connie Yori said with a smile.
