Nebraska, 23-3 overall, finished its first Big Ten Conference regular season with a 9-2 mark to claim the No. 4 seed in this week's Big Ten Tournament at Ohio State.

The Huskers earned a first-round bye, and will play the winner of Thursday's match between fifth-seeded Purdue and 12th-seeded Michigan State. Nebraska's opening match of the 12-team tournament will be held on Friday, April 27, at 9 a.m. (central) at the Varsity Tennis Center in Columbus, Ohio.
