LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Carmen Reynolds matched her season high with 16 points and Michigan capitalized on Nebraska's abysmal shooting to upset the 13th-ranked Cornhuskers 63-52 on Thursday night.

Michigan (18-7, 7-5 Big Ten) led 32-12 at half after going on a 26-3 run and holding the Huskers without a field goal for just over 14 minutes.

The 12 first-half points were the fewest by a Top 25 team against an unranked opponent since then-No. 9 California scored 11 against Oregon State in February 2008, according to STATS LLC.

Nebraska (19-4, 8-3) shot 26 percent but looked like it would make a game of it late. Michigan was up by 27 points early in the second half, but a spate of turnovers allowed the Huskers to cut it to eight with 2:01 left.

Courtney Boylan added 14 points, Rachel Sheffer 13 and Nya Jordan 11 for Michigan. Lindsey Moore had 23 points for Nebraska.
