A tough draw for the Nebraska women’s basketball team. They get selected as the 9th seed and will travel to Columbia, South Carolina for their first round match up with the Syracuse Orange on Friday at 6:30. A win against the Big Orange, will put the Big Red up against top seeded South Carolina in that regional. Seniors Emily Cady, Brandi Jeffery, Tear’a Laudermill and Hailie Sample, led the Huskers to their fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament after becoming the first class in school history to record four straight 20-win seasons.
Nebraska coach Connie Yori is in her 13th season and will be leading her seventh Nebraska team to the NCAA Tournament, with all seven appearances coming in the past nine seasons. The Huskers, who are making their 13th overall NCAA Tournament appearance, will be searching for their ninth NCAA Tournament victory when they take on Syracuse, which tied for fourth with Duke in the final ACC regular-season standings.
