Iowa vs. Nebraska, 3.10

Herbie Husker high-fives a fan as the Huskers take it to overtime against Iowa on March 10 at Pinnacle Bank Arena. Nebraska defeated Iowa 93-91.

The debut of the 2019-20 Nebraska men's basketball team is turning into a pretty big deal.

Nebraska announced Thursday that the lower bowl of Pinnacle Bank Arena was sold out for Opening Night with Husker Hoops, and on Friday announced the arena's 200 level was now open for those interested in reserving tickets.

The Sept. 27 event will feature a "nationally known" musical act, according to NU, along with a live scrimmage on the new PBA court, remarks from coach Fred Hoiberg, fan contests, giveaways and more.
