UNL students made it clear that they’re eager to watch Fred Hoiberg’s first season as the head coach of the Husker basketball team. Friday morning, the NU Athletics Ticket Office announced that students had snatched up nearly 1,600 student tickets for the upcoming season.
“Having a strong student section is important in building a home-court advantage, and today’s announcement shows how excited Husker students are for the upcoming season.” Hoiberg said in a press release. “Our team’s goal is to work hard and give our students and fans a product they can be proud of.”
The student tickets have been on sale since April, marking the fastest time a sellout has been achieved since the 2015-16 season. For regular season ticket holders however, ticket renewals are currently ongoing. The price of a season ticket begins at $136.
Nebraska will begin their season against Doane in an exhibition game on Wednesday, October 30th at Pinnacle Bank Arena, however their first regular season game is set for Tuesday, November 5th against UC Riverside, also at PBA.
