The Nebraska women's basketball team shoots for a season split with Minnesota while aiming for its fourth straight 20-win season. Nebraska is coming off a 67-64 road win at Indiana on Saturday, as the Huskers closed their regular-season road schedule with a 7-6 mark. NU finished 4-5 in Big Ten road games, including a 72-69 loss at Minnesota to open conference play on Dec. 29. Five of Nebraska's six road losses have been by single digits, with the only exception a 12-point loss at No. 5 Maryland, and all five of those league road losses have come to current top-50 RPI teams.

This week's games between Minnesota and Ohio State (March 1) will mark the final home appearances for the most accomplished senior class in Nebraska history. Seniors Emily Cady, Brandi Jeffery, Tear'a Laudermill and Hailie Sample have joined forces to lead the Huskers to a school-record-tying 94 wins during their four years in Lincoln.

With all four expected to be in the starting five, Tuesday night's game with Minnesota should mark the 500th combined appearances in Husker uniforms for the seniors. The quartet has combined for 3,691 points, 2,380 rebounds and 798 assists in their college careers.
