Huskers Face Lady Demons in Season Opener - University of Nebraska - Official Athletics Website
The Nebraska women’s basketball team tips off its 2023-24 regular season by playing host to the Northwestern State Lady Demons on Monday, Nov. 6 in Lincoln.

The ladies will be shorthanded without Allison Weidner, who suffered a knee injury a couple weeks ago and will miss the season. Another starter from past years is no longer on the roster, Trinity Brady. No explanation has been given, but it doesn’t appear she transferred anywhere. I’m guessing her injury history finally was too much. If so, that is unfortunate, she was a fun player to watch. Nebraska’s newcomers were impact players in the exhibition game. Good luck tonight ladies!
