LINCOLN, Ne. (KLKN) – As college basketball programs across the country are on pause due to positive COVID-19 cases, Nebraska men’s basketball team is currently healthy and ready to open their season tomorrow against McNeese State.

Head coach Fred Hoiberg said today during a press conference that the team has one more round of testing Tuesday night at 7 PM ahead of Wednesday’s season opener. The team will know the results of the test Wednesday morning.

Junior Trey McGowens said the team is doing their best to avoid the virus and remain healthy.

“We are basically in the house unless we are in the gym or getting food,” McGowens said.

As far as who we are going to see on the court tomorrow at the home opener, Hoiberg has not decided on a starting line-up. However, he did announce he has narrowed it down to six players: Trey McGowens, Teddy Allen, Yvan Ouedraogo, Delano Branton, Thor Thorbjarnarson and Lat Mayen.

The starting five players will be announced tomorrow. The Huskers tip off tomorrow at 11 AM against McNeese State at Pinnacle Bank Arena.
