The Nebraska women’s basketball team tips off its 2022-23 regular season today by taking on Omaha on Mon in Lincoln at Pinnacle Bank Arena with tipoff at 11:00 MT.

Nebraska enters 2022-23 ranked #22 in both Associated Press and USA Today/WBCA Top 25 preseason rankings as the Huskers return 4 starters from last year’s NCAA Tournament team that finished 24-9 overall and 11-7 in the Big Ten.

Omaha must replace the loss of its leading scorer and rebounder from a year ago, Mariah Murdie, but the Mavericks return the other 4 starters from last year’s squad that finished 7-19 overall and 3-14 in the Summit League.

Today’s game concludes Nebraska’s annual Life Skills Sportsmanship Pep Rally, which is welcoming more than 2,000 middle grades students from around the state earlier in the morning.

A live video stream of the game will be available to subscribers of B1G+, but fans can also listen to the call of Matt Coatney and Jeff Griesch on the Huskers App and It’s Coatney and Griesch’s 700th game together as the broadcast team for Nebraska women’s basketball.
