Seniors hope to finish with win over Huskers

Texas will play its final home match of the season on Sunday against Nebraska. Only two matches remain in conference play before the Big 12 tournament begins on April 29.

Sitting at 2-2 in conference, Texas is currently No. 4 in the Big 12 and only has tournament seeding at stake as the season winds down. If the current standings remain, Texas will face Texas Tech in the first round of the tournament.

Nebraska comes into the match at 14-8 overall and 0-2 in conference. It has played the top two teams in the Big 12 so far and is one of only two teams in the Big 12 without a conference win. That number will be cut in half this weekend as Nebraska travels to Stillwater on Friday to face Oklahoma State, the other winless team in the Big 12.

Sunday’s match will be the last conference matchup between Texas and Nebraska with the Cornhuskers moving to the Big Ten next year.

“Nebraska has significantly improved over the last couple of years,” said Texas head coach Michael Center.
As it currently stands, Texas would face the No. 1 seed in the Big 12 tournament.

“It is our last home match, and it’s Senior Day for Ed Corrie and Kellen Damico,” Center said.
