Husker women in action tonight

The No. 25 Nebraska women's basketball team continues its four-game home stand when the Huskers open Big Ten Conference action with Wisconsin in Lincoln tonight.

Tip-off between the Huskers (10-3) and the Badgers (8-5) is set for 7:05 p.m. (central) at the Bob Devaney Sports Center.

Nebraska will shoot for a strong start to Big Ten action by playing its first two conference games at home for the first time since 2007-08, when the Huskers opened Big 12 action with wins over Texas (56-45) and Kansas (71-51).

The Huskers tip-off conference play with the Badgers, who can equal their season victory total from 2011-12 with a win at the Devaney Center on Wednesday. UW comes to Lincoln with an 8-5 record following a road loss at Miami on Dec. 29. Second-year coach Bobbie Kelsey has guided Wisconsin to eight non-conference wins after managing just four wins outside the league a year ago. The Badgers finished with a 5-11 Big Ten mark last year.

All-Big Ten forward Jordan Hooper (19.5 ppg, 8.8 rpg) and second-team All-Big Ten point guard Lindsey Moore (15.0 ppg, 5.5 apg, 1.9 spg) lead the Huskers into conference play.
