Wisconsin at Nebraska, 2/9/17

A crowd of 14,568 fills the seats during Nebraska's game against Wisconsin on Thursday, Feb. 9, 2017, at Pinnacle Bank Arena.


Nebraska is among the schools that have conducted internal reviews into their compliance operations in response to the federal investigation of malfeasance in men's college basketball.

University spokeswoman Teresa Paulsen wrote in an email to The Associated Press on Wednesday that no violations were found.

The AP asked 84 major basketball schools about their response to the September arrests of 10 men, including a top Adidas executive and four assistant coaches, who were charged with using hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes to influence star athletes' choice of schools, shoe sponsors and agents.

When asked on Sept. 28, Nebraska coach Tim Miles said his program had not done an internal review. He said Wednesday that the review began shortly after Sept. 28.

Miles and the Huskers will give fans a preview of the 2017-18 team Thursday at Pinnacle Bank Arena with an open practice starting at 5:30 p.m. and a scrimmage to follow around 7 p.m. Following the 30-minute scrimmage, the Huskers will conduct a free autograph session for fans on the concourse, with 2017-18 season posters and schedule cards available.

It will be fans' first opportunity to see the transfers Isaac Copeland, Duby Okeke and James Palmer in action. Doors open at 5 p.m.

For fans, the clear-bag policy used at Memorial Stadium will also be used at PBA for Husker basketball games, beginning with both exhibition games Sunday (women) and Tuesday (men).
