LINCOLN, Neb. — The stage was set for Caitlin Clark to break the Division I women's all-time scoring record. Instead, Nebraska busted onto center stage to upset No. 2 Iowa, 82-79, on Sunday at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

Jaz Shelley hit a 3-pointer from the corner to give Nebraska its first lead, 78-77, with 30.2 seconds on the clock. The Cornhuskers trailed by 14 entering the fourth quarter. Clark, held scoreless in the final frame, missed a deep 3 on the other end and Nebraska corralled the rebound. Shelley added two free throws.

A Hannah Stuelke bucket for Iowa and two more Shelley free throws set up another opportunity for Iowa to tie it.
