NU Women Lose, Get in Sightseeing in Melbourne

The Nebraska women’s basketball team dropped its second straight game Wednesday in Australia. The Huskers fell 71-42 to one of Australia’s top professional teams, the Dandenong Rangers.

The Australian team is in first place in its league’s standings with a 16-3 record and its roster includes five-time WNBL All-Star Jacinta Kennedy.

The Huskers also spent part of the day Wednesday sightseeing in Melbourne, including a visit to Eureka Tower. The tower, which is 975-feet tall, offers brilliant 360-degree views of Melbourne from its skydeck on the 88th floor.
