Nebraska women’s basketball coach Connie Yori returned home early Sunday evening after a brief stop at a Lincoln hospital for precautionary tests Sunday afternoon. Yori fainted on the sideline near the 12-minute mark in the second half of the Huskers’ win over Indiana at Pinnacle Bank Arena earlier in the day. NU went on to win the game, 76-61, with Associate Head Coach Sunny Smallwood leading the defense and Assistant Coach Dayna Finch guiding the offense.
Yori, who walked off the court under her own power, was suffering from an infection and dehydration.
The Huskers improved to 19-5 overall and 9-3 in the Big Ten after the win over Indiana.
