The Nebraska women’s basketball team earned the No. 17 spot in the AP Top 25 preseason poll released Friday.
The Huskers, who compiled a 25-9 record (12-4 in the Big Ten) on the way to a Sweet 16 appearance last season, were ranked 12th in the USA Today coaches poll released earlier this week. On Thursday, Big Ten coaches and media members selected NU as the preseason favorite to win the conference.
No. 13 Penn State was the only Big Ten team to eclipse the Huskers in the poll. Other conference entries include No. 18 Purdue and No. 20 Michigan State.
