The Pinnacle Bank Arena is gearing up for NCAA Women's Basketball tournament action.
Monday, crews spent about three hours installing the custom NCAA basketball court.
The University of Nebraska was awarded one of four regional host sites for the 2014 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament. The Huskers will host the four-team regional at Pinnacle Bank Arena in downtown Lincoln, March 29 through April 1.
"We're excited that Lincoln was selected to host its first NCAA basketball tournament action since 1993," Nebraska Executive Associate Athletic Director Marc Boehm said. "We believe it is an amazing opportunity to show off the Pinnacle Bank Arena and showcase Nebraska basketball and the city of Lincoln."
The No. 13 Nebraska women’s basketball team takes on Brigham Young in the second round of the 2014 NCAA Tournament on Monday night in Los Angeles with a berth to the Sweet 16 on the line. Tip-off between the Big Ten Tournament champion Huskers (26-6, 12-4 Big Ten) and the Cougars (27-6, 14-4 West Coast Conference) is set for 8:10 p.m. (CT) / 6:10 p.m. (PT) at Pauley Pavilion on the campus of UCLA.
With a win, the Big Red will play to get back home to Pinnacle Bank Arena.
