(Lincoln, NE) Nebraska women's basketball celebrated their seniors Sunday before the game against Northwestern. Rachel Theriot did not play and she will not return this season for the Huskers.

The senior will undergo surgery Monday to repair an ankle injury.

"It's just been really hard with Rachel because it's just been one thing after another. She has only played one year here, healthy. She would have been one of the best players of all time in our program history I believe, if she had stayed healthy. That's tough and you feel bad for her, but you can't control those things." said head coach Connie Yori.

The Huskers will play Rutgers in the Big Ten tournament, Thursday.
