The Nebraska women’s basketball team earned its 14th NCAA Tournament bid in school history, as the Huskers claimed a No. 10 seed in the 64-team field announced during the NCAA Tournament Selection Show on ESPN Monday night.

Nebraska, which produced one of the nation’s top turnarounds under second-year coach Amy Williams in 2017-18, will face No. 7 seed Arizona State at the Erwin Center in Austin, Texas on Saturday, March 17, at 2:30 p.m. (CT).

Nebraska’s only other NCAA Tournament appearance in the state of Texas was a successful one. In 2013, the sixth-seeded Huskers went to College Station, Texas and defeated 11th-seeded Chattanooga (73-59) before knocking off third-seeded Texas A&M (74-63) at Reed Arena to advance to the second NCAA Sweet Sixteen in Husker history.
