NU, CU, UNO Basketball Helping Hurricane Victims

The men’s basketball programs at Nebraska, Creighton and UNO have scheduled exhibition games to help raise money for hurricane victims.

The Huskers will play Mississippi State this Sunday in Starkville, Mississippi.  While admission is free, representatives from the MSU Student Relief Fund and the Salvation Army will be collecting monetary donations to benefit Hurricane Irma relief efforts.

Closer to home, Creighton will play UNO next Thursday at 7 p.m. at CenturyLink Center Omaha.  All seats will be reserved at $10 and will go on sale tomorrow at 10 a.m.  100 percent of the net profits will benefit the American Red Cross Hurricane Relief Fund.
