With several new pieces in place, the Nebraska men’s basketball team was picked to finish 10th in the preseason media poll conducted by The Athletic and The Columbus Dispatch. Each school is represented by two different beat writers.
The Huskers return the core of last year’s squad, but added 5-star guard Bryce McGowens and a top 25 recruiting class in the off-season.
McGowens was one of three selected for Big Ten preseason Freshman of the year honors.
Michigan and Purdue tied atop the poll with the Wolverines getting 13 first place votes to 12 for the Boilermakers.
The Huskers open their season in 20 days with an exhibition against Peru State.
