Nebraska men’s basketball is in Orlando for the ESPN Events Invitational this weekend.
NU is making its second appearance in the event. In 2017, Nebraska finished fifth with a loss to UCF before wins over Marist and Long Beach State.
The 3-2 Huskers take on 3-1 Oklahoma at 4 p.m. this afternoon. The two teams have not met since NU left the Big 12 Conference. Oklahoma holds a 105-83 all-time lead in the series, though Nebraska won five of the final seven meetings as conference foes.
Nebraska is coming off an 82-58 victory over Arkansas-Pine Bluff. Five Huskers average at least nine points per game.
Oklahoma beat South Alabama 64-60 in their last appearance. The Sooner staff includes former Creighton assistant Porter Moser as the head coach, as well as former Nebraska coach Doc Sadler.
Today's game will be televised nationally on ESPN with Mark Neely and Randolph Childress on the call. The game will also be available on the ESPN App.
The Huskers Radio Network will have coverage beginning at 3 p.m., with Kent Pavelka and Jake Muhlheisen on the call. Coverage can be heard on affiliates across the state, including in Lincoln on 1400 AM and 99.3 FM KLIN.
