Walker-Kimbrough was 10-for-13 from the field with nine rebounds, and Mincy was 3-for-6 from 3-point range.

"I thought Shatori really helped us in the first half when we were trying to find our groove," Maryland coach Brenda Frese said. "I thought Nebraska came out really strong and aggressive. I thought the difference from the first half to the second half was our defense and our rebounding."

The Terps took the lead for good with a 13-2 run to open the second half. The Cornhuskers closed within 46-38 before Maryland stretched the lead to 64-42 with an 18-4 run. Mincy had a three-point play and two 3-pointers during that stretch and scored 20 of her 22 points in the second half.
