The Huskers had held opponents to an average of 52.8 points during the streak, but Lucas and the Lady Lions were too much for them Sunday.
Penn State got a scare when the 6-foot-4 Greene was knocked flat on her back after Nebraska 5-7 guard Brandi Jeffery ran into her full speed under the Huskers’ basket with 11:40 left in the game. Two athletic trainers attended to Greene for a couple minutes and helped her to the bench. She re-entered the game less than 2 minutes later.
‘‘She just took a shot to the head,’’ Washington said. ‘‘We wanted to take every precaution to make sure there is no trauma. She’s a warrior.’’
