Fred Hoiberg and Amy Williams will peel back the curtains on their Nebraska basketball teams on Oct. 1 for their annual opening night event.
Opening Night with Husker Hoops at Pinnacle Bank Arena will feature introductions of both teams, comments from Hoiberg and Williams and a scrimmage with the men's team.
Chicago-based rapper G Herbo will be the musical guest for the event, performing a post-scrimmage concert. Two years ago, Rick Ross took the mic.
“We are excited to welcome our fans back to Pinnacle Bank Arena this season, and Opening Night gives them a chance to see us scrimmage and to see the personalities of our players,” Hoiberg said in a statement. “For our players, it is their first opportunity to play in front of our great fans and that should make for a fun evening.”
The event, which begins at 7 p.m., is free to the public.
Beginning Wednesday, fans can start registering for lower bowl tickets on Huskers.com.
