Nebraska Men’s Basketball team won’t play in Myrtle Beach tournament
LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Nebraska will not participate in the 2020 Myrtle Beach Invitational in November, the University of Nebraska - Lincoln confirmed Wednesday.
“We will work within the framework provided by the Big Ten Conference to build our 2020-21 men’s basketball schedule, including any potential non-conference games,” a spokesperson said.
Instead, the Huskers may be playing at home for their opening games. A report on Wednesday indicates that the Huskers plan to host a tournament including several Power 5 conference teams.
Jon Rothstein, of CBS Sports, says sources indicate that the Huskers will create a “bubble” in Lincoln to create a safe and healthy playing environment for the participating teams. The NCAA men’s basketball season is scheduled to begin on November 25th.
