Nebraska men’s basketball announces non-conference schedule; Wayne State exhibtion game on docket
Matchups against seven teams that made the NCAA or NIT highlight a daunting non-conference schedule for the Husker men’s basketball team in 2018-19.
Their eleven-game non-conference slate includes four NCAA Tournament teams (Seton Hall, Clemson, Creighton and Cal State Fullerton) as well as NIT qualifiers Oklahoma State and Southeastern Louisiana. NU will also face another postseason qualifier in the 2018 National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame Classic, as Elite Eight finisher Texas Tech and NIT qualifier USC are on the opposite side of the four-team bracket in Kansas City. Nebraska faces Missouri State in the opening round on Nov. 19, at 6 p.m. and will face either Texas Tech or USC the following evening. The Huskers will look to build off a 22-11 record and NIT berth in 2017-18. They will also host Wayne State in an exhibition game on November 1st.
