Huskers to Tip at 3 in Opener with SIUE
The Nebraska women's basketball team will tip-off its 2017-18 regular season at Pinnacle Bank Arena against SIU Edwardsville on Saturday, Nov. 11 at 3 p.m.
The Huskers announced their tip time on Monday, Oct. 30, following the announcement by the Big Ten Conference of the Nebraska football team's road game at Minnesota as an 11 a.m. kick on Nov. 11. The Husker men's basketball team also will open its season against Eastern Illinois that night at Pinnacle Bank Arena. Tip-off between the Big Red men and the Panthers is set for 7:30 p.m.
Fans are encouraged to attend both men's and women's basketball games after watching the Husker football team take on the Golden Gophers earlier in the day. Pinnacle Bank Arena will be cleared between the two basketball games.
Husker fans also have the opportunity to support the Toys for Tots program in the Lincoln community, as members of the Marines and UNL ROTC will be collecting toys and monetary donations to benefit local children during the holidays.
Single-game tickets for Nebraska women's basketball will go on sale Nov. 1.
