Report: Nebraska coach Fred Hoiberg taken to the hospital
Nebraska coach Fred Hoiberg has been taken to the hospital after leaving the floor during his team’s game in the Big Ten Tournament.
No. 14 seed Nebraska was facing No. 11 seed Indiana — Nebraska lost 89-64, and the Huskers head coach looked visibly sick during the game with his head down on his wrist at one point late in the second half.

Obviously, with the outbreak of coronavirus, Hoiberg’s health is of utmost concern. He wasn’t feeling well earlier Wednesday, and coached the game anyway.

For now, the Big Ten Tournament will go on as scheduled with no fans in the stands; however, this is a fluid situation and could change at any time.
