For the first time in school history, Nebraska has pre-sold its entire allotment of public season tickets for men's basketball.

The school announced Friday there is now a wait list for the general public to purchase tickets for the 2013-14 season, the Huskers' first at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

"First of all, it is a tribute to the greatest fans in college athletics,” Nebraska executive associate athletic director Marc Boehm said. “Secondly, it also shows the enthusiasm that fans around the state have for Husker basketball.

"We want to thank Coach (Tim) Miles for the hard work that he and his staff have done over the past 13 months, as well as the commitment of our athletic staff in helping us to make today’s announcement possible.”

Less than 24 hours earlier, Nebraska had released a statement saying fewer than 300 season tickets remained available for the general public.

Approximately 100 student season tickets still remain.

Nebraska will not be holding back single-game tickets, other than tickets reserved for the visiting team and internal usage.

However, fans will have the opportunity to purchase single-game tickets when students are gone during winter break. The student section is 1,650 seats, including 1,000 on the floor, behind the bench and one basket.

Pinnacle Bank Arena will unofficially seat 15,147 for basketball. The previous school record for season tickets sold, set in 1992-93 at the Devaney Sports Center, was 12,000.

Nebraska sold 8,082 season tickets last season, the final one at the Devaney Center.
