NIU will open the regular season Friday, November 8 at perennial Horizon League power Green Bay with a 7 p.m. tipoff at the Kress Events Center.
The Huskies return two players, juniors Amanda Corral and Jenna Thorp, both of whom started 29 games last season for NIU, and seven returning letter women to mentor seven newcomers this season. Corral was the Huskies leading scorer (12.7) and rebounder (5.0) last season, while also dishing a team-high 2.0 assists per game.
