Nebraska women's basketball to host Creighton on November 24

The Nebraska women's basketball team will take on Creighton in the annual meeting between the two schools on Nov. 24 at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln. 

The traditional clash with the Jays becomes the second announced game on Nebraska's 2019-20 season schedule, joining the Huskers' home game with Duke at Pinnacle Bank Arena in the B1G/ACC Challenge on Dec. 4, which was announced last week.  Nebraska returns all but one player from its 2019-20 roster, including four freshmen who combined for 893 points last season.  Creighton finished with a 15-16 overall record in 2018-19 that included an 8-10 BIG EAST Conference mark.  The Jays will lose two-time first-team All-BIG EAST forward Audrey Faber to graduation.  Nebraska leads the all-time series with Creighton 30-14, dating back to the first meeting between the two teams on Jan. 31, 1975 - one of the first games in Husker history.
