Fred Hoiberg and Nebraska faced the Oklahoma Sooners on Thursday. Much like in football, the Sooners got the better of the Huskers.

Nebraska lost to Oklahoma by a score of 69-56 in the ESPN Events Invitational. A 2nd half scoring drought proved to be a crushing blow to Nebraska despite playing well on defense.

“We had plenty of opportunities,” said Hoiberg. “I think we went through about a five-minute drought. We were stopping them on the other end. It was keeping it between about seven and 10, but we just could not make a shot.”

At the end of the day Hoiberg noted how Nebraska needs to learn from the loss and move on. The Huskers don’t need to let this loss linger and should focus on getting ready for Memphis on Friday.

“We’ve got to bounce back. You can’t let this one linger,” Hoiberg said. “Hopefully we’ll knock down some shots tomorrow and get feeling good about ourselves. You’ve got to have a short memory in events like this when you lose the first one.”

The Huskers are now 3-2 loss after the loss to Oklahoma. Nebraska faces Memphis next in the ESPN Events Invitational Friday at 5:30 p.m. ET on ESPN News.
