Lindsey’s Legacy: Her Heart, Habits, Humility

Randy York’s N-Sider - When the curtain finally came down on Lindsey Moore’s last act inside the Bob Devaney Sports Center Sunday, the best point guard in Nebraska women’s basketball history made sure that the last line in her postgame Senior Day speech was an assist, not a shot. Nearly 11,000 fans saw Nebraska’s Big Ten championship loss to No. 7 Penn State, and most all of them stayed to watch Moore be honored with fellow senior Meghin Williams.

Event Spotlight:
Huskers Host Gophers in Devaney Finale

The Nebraska men’s basketball team wraps up a 37-year run in the Bob Devaney Sports Center Wednesday evening, as the Huskers play host to the Minnesota Golden Gophers on Senior Night. 

Nebraska will honor its three seniors – Andre Almeida, Dylan Talley and Brandon Ubel – during pregame ceremonies slated to start at 7:45 p.m. All three have played major roles in helping Nebraska improve its win total from last year despite losing four starters from last year’s team. The trio combines for over 30 points and 15 rebounds per game, including the team’s leading scorer (Talley, 14.4 ppg), rebounder (Ubel, 6.7 rpg) and shot blocker (Almeida, 1.1 bpg).

Tip-off is slated for 8:06 p.m. and tickets are on sale for $10 and $15 for the final home game of the season by visiting Huskers.com, calling the Devaney Center Ticket Office at 1-800-8-BIGRED or at the Devaney Center at 6:30 p.m. Fans will be able to purchase $1 Pepsi products and popcorn throughout the evening and Husker legends Dave Hoppen, Eric Piatkowski and Erick Strickland will be signing autographs for fans in the main concourse from 7 p.m. until 7:45. In addition, the first 10,000 fans will receive a special poster honoring the All-Devaney team. 

The Huskers’ game with Minnesota will be televised nationally on BTN with Kevin Kugler and Tim Doyle on the call. Wednesday’s matchup is also available on BTN2GO. 

The game will also be carried across the state on the 29-station Husker Sports Network, with Kent Pavelka and Matt Davison calling all of the action. The game can be heard for free at Huskers.com and is also available on the Huskers’ app.
