The Husker Women's Basketball team lost a heartbreaker last night, 76-64, to fifth-rankend and top-seeded Maryland in College Park. The Huskers battled back from a 15-point deficit in the first half with a 16-2 run to end the half down only one. In the second half, Nebraska managed to battle with Maryland for a while, tying the game at 45 before the Terps went on a quick 8-point burst to take the lead for good. The Huskers battled the rest of the way, but couldn't get enough of a run to close the gap.

Though they lost tonight, they can hold their heads high for not backing down on the road against a team that features four starters from the Terps' 2006 National Championship squad. The future looks bright as well, with all but Husker back, including All-Big XII forward Kelsey Griffin.
