Bluder's Bunch set to take on No. 24 Nebraska this weekend


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

After a close loss to Nebraska on Feb. 11, the Iowa women’s basketball team will travel to Lincoln, Neb., for a rematch against the Cornhuskers Feb. 24.

The Black and Gold had yet to win a game in February until they traveled to West Lafayette on Feb. 17, where they upset the No. 22 Boilermakers, 72-52, winning in Mackey Arena for the first time since 1998. The win came on the heels of a five-game losing streak.

“We’ve played well, we’ve had high assists, we’ve shot the ball better,” head coach Lisa Bluder said after Iowa’s win at Purdue in a release. “We just played against some really good competition and didn’t get the benefit of the win.”

Bluder’s Bunch are winless against the Huskers. They’ve gone 0-3 against Nebraska since it joined the conference in 2011.

“We just have the personality to not give up,” Sam Logic said after Sunday’s win in a release. “We just had too big of a lead to come back from. I think if we had another minute, minute and a half, we would have won that game.”

Action will kick off at 2 p.m. in the Devaney Sports Center. Coverage is on the Big Ten Network.
