WACO, Texas - The 2010-11 tennis season came to an end Thursday at the Big 12 Championships as the No. 41 nationally ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers defeated Colorado, 4-0 in the first round of the conference tournament at the Baylor Tennis Center.

In a season filled with injuries and a freshman dominated lineup, the Buffaloes end the season at 3-19 overall and a school record 16-match losing streak. The 19 losses are the most in one season.

The Cornhuskers, seeded No. 5 improves to 20-6 overall and advance to play No. 4 seed Texas A&M on Friday afternoon.

"Obviously, coming to any Big 12 Tennis Championships is a great experience for our players," said CU head coach Nicole Kenneally. "Nebraska has a great team this year, but I am also extremely proud of the group I have. They have gone through a lot of adverse situations this year.

"Sometimes it is hard to see what happens behind the scenes from the win-loss column, but I am extremely proud of everything they have put forward."

Nebraska has now defeated CU five-straight times and blanked the Buffs, 7-0 back on April 20 in Boulder. Since the series began in 1981, both schools have 18 wins apiece. Beginning July 1st, CU will join the Pac-12 Conference, Nebraska the Big Ten.
