Behind five players in double figures, Michigan State women's basketball captured its Big Ten home opener, 78-70, in overtime on New Year's Eve at the Breslin Center. MSU trailed by as many as 10 points in the third quarter but chipped away at the deficit.

With the win, the Spartans snapped a three-game losing streak and improve to 8-5 this season and 1-1 in league contests. Nebraska had its six-game winning streak halted and falls to 11-2 overall and 1-1 in the Big Ten. With Tuesday's Big Ten home opener victory, MSU is now 25-13 in B1G home openers.
