Husker Women Advance to Play Top-Seeded Maryland

Nebraska's women's basketball team jumped out to a 13-2 lead, and held off a late charge to win 71-68, the Husker's first NCAA tourney win in 10 years.  All-Big XII Junior Kelsey Griffin tied her season high with 26 points.  You can check out highlights from the game here.

The Husker women will face top-seeded and fifth-ranked Maryland (on the Terps' home court) Tuesday at a yet-to-be-determined time.  ESPN and ESPN2 have television coverage.  Nebraska has never advanced past the second round.  Maryland, coming off an 80-66 win over 16th-seeded Coppin State, was the NCAA champion 2 years ago, but lost last year on their home court in the second round.  Maryland finished second in the ACC at 13-1, and has only lost to Rutgers, North Carolina, and Duke (in the ACC tournament).

Beating the Terps will be a tough task, but it's great big-game experience for a Husker team that will return all but one player from this year's squad.  Should the Huskers win, they'll advance to the Sweet 16 in Spokane.
