Over the last two seasons, only three of Nebraska’s regular-season conference games have appeared on BTN each year. The return to the national TV scene might have something to do with Nebraska’s return to the NCAA Tournament last season under head coach Amy Williams following a 14-game improvement from 2016 to 2017.
Williams was named the Big Ten Coach of the Year for 2017 following a 21-11 record and third-place finish in the conference. The Huskers will return each of their top five scorers from a season ago for the 2018-19 campaign.
Each of the first 12 games of the Big Ten Women’s Basketball Tournament in Indianapolis will be aired on BTN this season, beginning on March 6. The Big Ten Championship Game will be aired on ESPN 2 on Sunday, March 10.
Season tickets for Nebraska women’s basketball are currently on sale and can be purchased here.
