(Neb.)-Nebraska to host NCAA women's regional
LINCOLN - The University of Nebraska has been awarded one of four regional host sites for the 2014 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament, the NCAA announced Wednesday.
The Huskers will host the four-team regional at Pinnacle Bank Arena in downtown Lincoln, March 29 through April 1.
Pinnacle Bank Arena will be the home of Nebraska men's and women's basketball for its inaugural season in 2013-14. The $179 million arena is located in the historic Haymarket district in downtown Lincoln, just steps away from the University of Nebraska campus.
With a capacity of more than 15,000, the arena has sold out for Husker men's basketball for 2013-14 and season ticket sales for women's basketball are up 50 percent from a year ago.
Nebraska women’s basketball season ticket holders will get the first opportunity to buy NCAA Regional tickets when they are made available for sale. Game dates, times and ticket prices have not yet been announced, but tickets for preliminary NCAA Tournament rounds are expected to be available for purchase no later than Nov. 16.
