Last year, Nebraska rival Creighton was the winner of the Cayman Island Classic. There were no B1G participants in the event in 2018.
Nebraska finished the 2018-19 season with a 19-17 record and making an NIT appearance. The Huskers won their first-round matchup against Butler before falling to TCU.
The Cayman Islands Classic will be entering just its third year of existence next season. The only B1G team to participate in the event was Iowa in 2017. The Hawkeyes went 1-2 in the event.
