LINCOLN, Neb. - Senior outside hitter Carly Jenson had 17 kills and 10 digs on Saturday night as the No. 12 Cyclones (9-2) absorbed their second loss in as many games at the hands of No. 8 Nebraska (25-23, 25-15, 25-18) in front of 10,380 at the Devaney Center in Lincoln, Neb.

Setter Alison Landwehr joined Jenson with a double-doubles on the night, grabbing 27 assists and 10 digs.

Blocking told much of the story as the Huskers (7-1) out blocked Iowa State 13-1, including eight blocks in the third and final set. Brooke Delano led Nebraska at the net with seven block assists and Hayley Thramer added two solo blocks and four block assists.

The Cyclones struggled on offense, hitting .087 and notching 36 kills but committing 25 attack errors. Nebraska finished with a .281 offensive clip.

Gina Mancuso, 14 kills and 11 digs, and Morgan Broekhuis, 11 kills and 10 digs, recorded double-doubles for Nebraska.

Set one was close to the end but it was Nebraska's four blocks and .406 hitting, behind Broekhuis' five kills that put away the set for the Huskers.

The Huskers owned set two, building a 10-4 edge early and carrying the lead to a 2-0 match edge behind seven Mancuso kills and five block assists by Delano.

The Cyclones came back in the final set, taking a 13-11 lead and the teams stayed within a point until Mancuso came through for the Huskers once more, giving Nebraska the 19-16 kill and the home team never looked back.

On Wednesday, the Cyclones return home to open the Big 12 conference season in their first of three nationally broadcast matches, a 7 p.m. CDT first serve against Missouri on ESPNU.
