The malaise surrounding the men's team seems to have extended to the women's team. Opening game at Nebraska- UCLA lost by 28 points. UCLA only had 6 players due to injuries. Yikes.
Last UCLA lead was 4-2, and they trailed by 20 at halfime.
This was the opening game in Nebraska's new basketball arena. Attendance was 9750. And Nebraska is ranked Number 12 in the country.
Morgan Center is touting the fact that the women's team has reached the NCAA tourney 3 times in the last 4 years. Although this is good compared to Howland's flame-out, It is not at the level which anybody outside Morgan Center would presumably expect as the mark of a top-flight program.
Time will tell. Next game is at home on Veteran's Day vs. Pepperdine.
