    LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Lindsey Moore scored 15 of her 22 points in the second half to help Nebraska protect a 13-point halftime lead and hold off No. 23 Southern California for a 68-50 victory Friday night.

    Briana Gilbreath had 18 points for USC (1-1).

    Jessica Hooper scored 16 points in the first half for the Huskers (2-0) and finished with 22.

    USC closed the gap to 44-38 on Ashley Corral's 3-pointer with 10:50 to go, but Moore hit a jumper and a 3-pointer on Nebraska's next two possessions to put the Huskers up by 11.
