Huskers to host Temple Sunday
The Nebraska women's basketball team wraps up its season-opening weekend by taking on traditional Atlantic 10 Conference power Temple on Sunday afternoon at the Bob Devaney Sports Center.
Tip-off between the Huskers (1-0) and Owls (1-0) is set for 2:05 p.m.
Nebraska will honor all members past and present of the armed serves on Military Appreciation Day at the Devaney Center. All current and former military members with valid military identification will receive free general admission seating to both the women's basketball game against Temple at 2:05 p.m., and the men's basketball game against Southern at 6 p.m.
As part of the day-night doubleheader at the Devaney Center, anyone with a men's basketball ticket for the Southern game will receive free general admission seating to the women's game.
Nebraska heads into Sunday's showdown with Temple after working its way to a 68-50 win over a talented and experienced North Carolina A&T squad. Senior All-America candidate Lindsey Moore led the Huskers with 15 points and three assists against the Aggies. Sophomore starters Hailie Sample and Brandi Jeffery each added 10 points. Sample's 10 points matched her career high, while she added six boards and three assists. Jeffery produced double figures in her first career start.
Temple comes to Lincoln after a hard-fought home win over perennial Big Sky Conference power Montana on Friday night at McGonigle Hall in Philadelphia. Senior center Victoria Macaulay dominated the game with 21 points and 16 rebounds in 39 minutes of work on the block. Macaulay is the lone returning starter from an Owl unit that went 23-10 overall and 13-1 in the A-10 last season, while advancing to the WNIT Sweet 16.
