Nebraska Cornhuskers Men’s Basketball Tickets

Nebraska Cornhuskers Men’s Basketball Schedule
Organized basketball has been played under the auspices of the University of Nebraska at Lincoln well well over 100 years, and while the Cornhuskers enjoyed some early success in roundball, football has always been the number one priority at Nebraska. Big Red’s basketball program has only enjoyed limited success in the last few decades, as the Cornhuskers have made six trips to the NCAA Tournament (no wins) and won the NIT tournament in ‘96. Despite that, things are starting to turn around in Huskerland and now is a great time to buy Nebraska basketball tickets.
This season will be Nebraska’s last at the Bob Devaney Sports Center as the new $180 million, 16,000-seat Pinnacle Bank Arena will be opening in September 2013. Big Red basketball does have a loyal core of fans and many of the top games on the Nebraska Cornhuskers schedule figure to sell out this season, so get your Cornhuskers tickets early.
As part of the ongoing major realignment in college sports, the Cornhuskers made the switch from the Big 12 to the Big 10 Conference to give the revamped conference a total of 12 teams (despite its name). Nebraska will take on the Big Ten with newly hired coach Tim Miles, who had been the head coach for the Colorado State Rams for the previous five years. Make sure you are there to see what happens this season with Nebraska Cornhuskers tickets.
Nebraska’s schedule will certainly be challenging, and while the Big 12 and the Big Ten are major conferences and roughly comparable in the power rankings, the Big Ten is more basketball oriented and the conference schedule is truly grueling. Coach Miles is likely to undertake a revamp of the Nebraska Cornhuskers roster as well, so this is likely to be a transitional season for the Cornhuskers. The good news is the team is returning both of its top scorers, seniors Bo Spencer and Toney McCray, so at least there will be some senior leadership and scoring potential to fall back on. Get your Nebraska Cornhuskers basketball tickets soon. We’ll also have Big 10 Conference so you can follow the Huskers all season long.
