Alabama A&M scouting report: The Bulldogs are coached by former Husker guard Margaret Richards, who is in her fourth year with the program, having compiled a 26-60 record. Last year’s team was Richards’ best, but it is picked to finish seventh in the SWAC. Evans — one of the few big centers in the SWAC — is a preseason all-conference pick and should be a challenge for NU to guard if Cain isn’t in the starting lineup, as NU released to the media. Jones is a graduate of Lincoln Northeast. Also on A&M’s team is Dariauna Lewis, an Omaha North grad who recently transferred from Missouri State. The Bulldogs and Huskers have not played each other before

Nebraska scouting report: Season 4 for Amy Williams starts with the special noon tipoff, preceded by a sportsmanship pep rally that starts at 9:30 a.m. Roughly 1,800 children are scheduled to attend the event from 27 school districts. Williams and Richards will speak at the event. NU is 42-3 in home openers and 5-1 at Pinnacle Bank Arena. One thing to watch early in the season: 3-point shooting. That’s usually a little rusty out of the gate, so offensive rebounds tend to be aplenty. As the game wears on, NU’s superior depth and talent should lean heavily on Alabama A&M. Will the Huskers’ defense be sharp from the start?
