Nebraska will travel to the South Point Shootout in Vegas. Including South Point, where the Huskers will play Southern Cal and Sacred Heart, Nebraska previously announced home games versus Duke and Creighton.

The Nebraska women’s basketball team will spend Thanksgiving in Las Vegas while competing in the 2019 South Point Shootout, Nov. 29-30.

The Huskers’ second trip to the South Point Shootout under Coach Amy Williams will include a marquee match-up against USC on Friday, Nov. 29, at 7:45 p.m. (CT). Nebraska will wrap up its two-game visit to Las Vegas by battling Sacred Heart on Saturday, Nov. 30, at 5:30 p.m. (CT). Nebraska made its first trip to the South Point Shootout in November of 2016, facing Washington State (Nov. 25) and Virginia (Nov. 26).

A total of 10 teams will take part in the 2019 version of the South Point Shootout, including Big Ten rival Ohio State and South Dakota, who will face off against each other right before Nebraska and USC on Friday afternoon. Alabama and Northern Iowa will clash immediately following the Big Red’s battle with the Women of Troy on Friday, while Tennessee Tech, Northern Illinois and Detroit Mercy round out the field.
The Husker Sports scout on Sacred Heart:

Sacred Heart should also pose a formidable test for Nebraska. Coach Jessica Mannetti led the Pioneers to a 19-13 record last season, including a 14-4 mark in Northeast Conference play. The Pioneers, who are also known as the Big Red, advanced to the first round of the 2019 WNIT. Sacred Heart will be led by junior guard Adrianne Hagood, who averaged 11.2 points per game as a starter last season. Senior Allyson Murphy and junior Olivia Dabney also return with significant starting experience for the Pioneers.

Another Husker schedule drip: Nebraska opens the season with a, kids day, Wednesday, 6 November, noon home game versus Alabama A&M (whom Gopher fans remember as handing Minnesota's one of it's worst losses (65-78) in 2010).

The Nebraska women’s basketball team will host a special tip-off to the 2019-20 season when the Huskers welcome 3rd through 8th grade students from around the state to Pinnacle Bank Arena for the Nebraska Life Skills Sportsmanship Pep Rally on Wednesday, Nov. 6.
The Sportsmanship Pep Rally will take place prior to Nebraska’s season-opening game against Alabama A&M, which is scheduled for a noon tip-off at Pinnacle Bank Arena. The Bulldogs are coached by former Husker Margaret Richards.

267 Manhatten
235 Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
193 (N) Sacred Heart
158 Oral Roberts

I really do not understand how a school that presumably has post-season aspirations does this to themselves (and this goes double for MN's schedule last year). The season doesn't start for more than three months and it's already almost certain that Nebraska can't make the NCAAs.

... as indeed it did prove certain last year that the Gophers couldn’t make the NCAAs (unless they had a near-perfect record, which they didn’t).

One item that slipped by in mid-December that I didn't notice until checking out the Huskers for the upcoming tilt with Minnesota:

Junior, guard/forward Taylor Kissinger is out for the season because of a hip injury that requires surgery. Kissinger has had a injury filled career.
