Nebraska men’s basketball coach Fred Hoiberg expects his team will play Creighton this season. He said last night on the Husker Sports Radio Network, “I’m fairly confident we will play that game.”
Hoiberg said he was also confident the Huskers’ non-conference schedule will be released today and NU’s Big Ten schedule will be out soon. The only men’s basketball events currently listed on Huskers.com are the Golden Window Classic from November 25-29 at Pinnacle Bank Arena – with matchups and game times TBA – and Nebraska hosting Georgia Tech on December 9th as part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
Also yesterday, the Huskers were picked to finish 13th in the annual unofficial Big Ten media poll. Illinois was picked to win the conference, with Iowa second.
The Hawkeyes’ Luke Garza was selected as the league’s preseason player of the year.
