By NU Athletic Communications

The Nebraska women's basketball team invites fans to an open practice for the public at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Tuesday, Oct. 23.

Admission to the event is free and tip-off for the Huskers' open practice is set for 7 p.m. The public portion of the practice will last for approximately one hour. Doors for the event open at 6:45 p.m., and the first 1,000 fans in attendance will receive a free T-shirt, courtesy of adidas. Nebraska players will be available for autographs following practice.

The open preseason practice will give fans their first chance to see the 2018-19 Huskers on the court, while Big Ten Coach-of-the-Year Amy Williams leads the practice.

The women's basketball team's preseason event precedes men's basketball's Husker Hoops Preview at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Wednesday, Oct. 24.

Nebraska will play its only women's basketball exhibition game against Nebraska-Kearney at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Saturday, Nov. 3. The Huskers' regular-season schedule opens with 2018 NCAA Tournament qualifier and Missouri Valley Conference champion Drake at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Wednesday, Nov. 7.
