The Nebraska men’s basketball team officially ushers in the Fred Hoiberg era tonight.  The first-year coach and the Huskers open their regular season at home against UC Riverside. 

Hoiberg said his team took one day off following last Wednesday’s 91-63 exhibition win over Doane and has looked good in practice since then.  

Tonight’s tipoff at Pinnacle Bank Arena is slated for 8 p.m.  The pre-game show starts just after 7 on News Talk 900 KJSK.
