By  | 

Nebraska women's basketball fans can now purchase single-game tickets for the 2010-11 season through the Nebraska Athletic Ticket Office on or by calling 1-800-8-BIGRED.

Connie Yori, the 2010 National Coach of the Year, leads the Huskers into a new season after guiding Nebraska to the most successful year in school history in 2009-10. Nebraska captured the Big 12 regular-season title with a perfect 16-0 record before earning a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Huskers, who went a perfect 16-0 at the Bob Devaney Sports Center, became the first Big 12 women's or men's team to complete an unbeaten regular season (29-0), before advancing to the NCAA Sweet 16 for the first time in school history.

Along the way, Nebraska fans came out in record numbers to support the Huskers. NU averaged a Big 12-best 11,383 fans per game during home conference games, and closed the season with seven consecutive crowds of more than 10,000. Overall, Nebraska ranked seventh nationally with 7,380 fans per game on the year, while finishing the season with a 20-game home winning streak.

Following the season, Nebraska sold more than 1,100 new season tickets. B and C Level reserved season tickets are still available for the 2010-11 season at a cost of just $144 - a $1 savings per ticket over the single-game price. General admission season tickets are just $72, while youth and senior GA seats are just $36 - both a $1 savings per ticket over the single-game rate.

Senior guard Dominique Kelley and sophomore point guard Lindsey Moore return to lead the Nebraska backcourt after starting all 34 games a year ago. Returning experienced starters Catheryn Redmon (21 starts in 2008-09) and Kaitlyn Burke (19 starts in 2008-09) both return to the NU lineup, along with a supporting cast that includes senior Jessica Periago, junior Harleen Sidhu and sophomores Layne Reeves, Katya Leick and Meghin Williams.

Nebraska fans will also have the chance to welcome a five-player freshman class that is highlighted by two-time Nebraska Gatorade High School Player of the Year Jordan Hooper (Alliance) and 2010 Arizona Gatorade High School Player of the Year Rebecca Woodberry (Phoenix). Katie Simon (Roseville, Calif.), Adrianna Maurer (Shawnee Mission, Kan.) and Kellie McCann-Smith (Asotin, Wash.) round out the Husker freshman class.

Nebraska's 18-game home schedule (16 regular season, two exhibition games) will feature nine games with 2010 postseason teams, including four home games against teams that advanced to at least the NCAA second round.

The Huskers tip-off Big 12 play with Oklahoma on Jan. 8. The Sooners advanced to their second straight Final Four last season. Following a home game against 2010 WNIT qualifier Kansas on Jan. 16, the Huskers will square off against 2010 NCAA Sweet 16 qualifier Iowa State at the Devaney Center on Jan. 26.
