Nebraska men’s basketball makes statement on racial injustice

"No more hashtags, only change," Teddy Allen said.

LINCOLN – The Nebraska men’s basketball gave a powerful statement regarding the racial tensions across the country on Thursday.

Outside of the Hendrick’s Training Complex, every player stepped up to a podium and said “I stand for” a Black victim of police brutality and systemic racism across the country. The final person to walk out of the building was head coach Fred Hoiberg, who stated “I stand for all Black lives,” then stepped away from the podium.

Then senior Kobe Webster and junior Teddy Allen read a statement written by the team, pleading for change and not just on social media.

“No more hashtags, only change,” Allen said.
