LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - After playing back-to-back home games in the WNIT, Nebraska is scheduled for a road contest in the “Super 16.” The Huskers will play at Kansas on Thursday night. The match-up is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence, Kansas.

Nebraska and Kansas played in Lincoln during the regular season. It was a triple overtime thriller, which the Huskers won 85-79.

Amy Williams’ team has looked impressive during the post-season. Nebraska beat Missouri State and Northern Iowa, which stretches the Big Red’s record to 18-14. Kansas, meanwhile, is 21-10 overall. The Jayhawks defeated Missouri on Monday night in the WNIT.
