Husker Men Host Illinois As Busy Schedule Continues Posted by Jeremy Anderson Date: February 12, 2021 30 Views Photo Courtesy: Scott Bruhn, Nebraska Communications The Nebraska men’s basketball team is back on the court tonight as they host 6th ranked Illinois. It’s Nebraska’s fourth game in seven days, and the Huskers are 0-3 in those games. Even worse, Nebraska is trying to snap a 25 game Big Ten losing streak. The Fighting Illini have rattled off four straight wins, including top 25 wins over Wisconsin and Iowa. Tipoff tonight is at 7:07 pm and can be heard on KCSR. Pregame coverage starts at 6:00 pm. Nebraska did announce a schedule change late on Thursday night. After the Huskers play at Penn State on Sunday, they will stay on the east coast and play Maryland on both Tuesday and Wednesday night as they attempt to make up a chunk of their schedule due to COVID.
