Yori Goes For 200th Win at Nebraska on Saturday

By  | 

The Nebraska women's basketball team returns from the holiday break to close non-conference play when the Huskers play host to Grambling State in Lincoln on Saturday, Dec. 29.

Tip-off between the Huskers (9-3) and the Lady Tigers (1-9) is set for 7:05 p.m. (central) at the Devaney Center. The game will be part of a day/night double-header, as the NU men welcome Nicholls State to a 2 p.m. tip at the Devaney Center. Fans with tickets to the men's game also can receive free general admission to the women's game on Saturday night. Tickets for the women's game are available now at Huskers.com.

The Husker Sports Network will provide a live radio broadcast of the game with Matt Coatney and Jeff Griesch on the call, including flagships B107.3 FM in Lincoln and The Wolf 93.3 FM in Omaha. A free live audio stream will be available on Huskers.com. Live video will be available to HuskersNside subscribers accompanied by the audio from the Husker Sports Network.

Nebraska hopes to secure its 10th win of the season when the Huskers take on the Lady Tigers in the final tune-up before the start of Big Ten Conference action.

The game could also be a milestone game for Coach Connie Yori, who shoots for her 200th win as Nebraska's head coach. She would become the first Husker women's basketball coach to reach the 200-win mark at the school. It would be Yori's second milestone win against Grambling State in her Husker career. On Nov. 22, 2002, Yori notched a 63-40 win over the Lady Tigers in her first game as Nebraska's head coach.

Yori enters Saturday night's game with a 199-129 record in her 11th season at Nebraska and a 394-269 overall record in her 23rd season as a collegiate head coach.
