The Nebraska women’s basketball team will face a challenging non-conference schedule in coach Amy William’s first season on the job. The Huskers’ non-league slate will be capped by a home game with defending national champion UConn on Wednesday, December 21, at Pinnacle Bank Arena.
“If you want to be the best, you’ve got to see the best, and we definitely have a chance to run with some of the nation’s best teams this season,” said Williams. “Our home game against UConn is obviously a highlight, but we will play seven really good home games before that one, including three exceptionally tough games in the Preseason WNIT.”
Overall, Nebraska’s 2016-17 schedule could include as many as 11 games against 2016 NCAA Tournament teams, including 10 that advanced at least to the second round, and 11 more games against teams that advanced to the 2016 Postseason WNIT.
Nebraska’s regular-season non-conference campaign will open on Saturday, November 12, when the Huskers take on Texas Rio Grande Valley in the opening round of the Preseason WNIT.
