Nebraska basketball announces summer trip to Spain featuring 3 games
Fred Hoiberg’s Nebraska basketball team has some exciting summer plans. The Huskers are going to Spain in late July, the program announced Monday.
Nebraska’s Spanish trip will be 9 days (July 28 to Aug. 7). During that period, the Huskers will visit Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona. Nebraska will play 3 games against teams from Spain in between sightseeing.
“A foreign trip like this is a great opportunity for our program,” Hoiberg said via the team website. “For our players, it is an opportunity to be together as a team, be immersed in a different culture and take in some amazing sights and history. It will be one of the most memorable experiences of their college career. As coaches, it gives us 10 additional practices during the summer to begin implementing our system as well as an opportunity to play three games where we can learn more about our team and use different lineups.”
Before the Huskers start brushing up on their Spanish, they have a trip to Chicago this week. Hoiberg’s squad is the No. 11 seed in the Big Ten Tournament. Nebraska faces No. 14 seed Minnesota on Wednesday in Game 2, which will tip 25 minutes after the completion of Game 1 (6:30 p.m. ET start time).
