Sophomore Natalie Romeo scored 20 points and dished out five assists to lead four Huskers in double figures, as the Nebraska women’s basketball team won the final game of its Australian Tour with a 76-56 victory over the Sydney Heat on Monday.
Romeo knocked down 7-of-14 shots from the field, including 5-of-12 three-pointers to lead the Big Red with a game-high 20 points. It marked the third time in four games in Australia that Romeo scored 20 or more points.
Six-five junior Allie Havers added 14 points and eight rebounds, while freshman forward Rachel Blackburn rounded out the Huskers in double figures with 10 points, seven rebounds and three assists.
The Huskers will spend a final day in Sydney on Tuesday before returning to Nebraska on Wednesday.
