Fred Hoiberg, Nebraska hoops waiting to make decision on Sam Griesel for Purdue game following recent illness
Fred Hoiberg updated what Nebraska’s plans are for dealing with Sam Griesel per Stadium’s Jeff Goodman. Griesel was not able to play against Indiana on Dec. 7.
Griesel played a huge role in the recent upset win over in-state rival Creighton. Griesel finished the game with 18 points, 12 rebounds, and 7 assists. In Griesel’s absence, the Huskers lost 81-65 to the Hoosiers.
Hoiberg is planning on seeing how Griesel looks at the team’s shoot around before making a final decision.
Nebraska’s Sam Griesel will be re-evaluated this morning at shootaround and then a decision will be made about his availability against Purdue, Fred Hoiberg told @Stadium. Griesel missed last game at Indiana due to illness. Had 18, 12 and 7 in win at Creighton last week.

Nebraska is 6-4 after suffering a loss to Indiana. It won’t get any easier for the team as Purdue is up next on the schedule. The Boilermakers are 9-0 and are the No. 4 team in the country. Luckily for Nebraska the game is going to be played in Lincoln.
It may be a tough task for the Huskers to slow down the likes of Zach Edey. Edey has been on a mission this season averaging 22.3 points, 13.3 rebounds, and 1 assist per game.
Tipoff will be at 2:15 p.m. ET on BTN.
