The Nebraska softball team (21-31) battled back and forth with Illinois (32-22) on Thursday in the first round of the 2019 Big Ten Tournament, but ultimately fell to by a score of 6-4. The Huskers trailed 6-2 heading into the bottom of the seventh, but never gave up. Nebraska scored two runs and brought the winning run to the plate twice, before Illinois snatched the victory. With the loss, the Huskers’ 2019 season comes to a close.
