Report: Two Huskers suspended by Fred Hoiberg, sent home from Minnesota before final game
Two Nebraska basketball players have been indefinitely suspended by head coach Fred Hoiberg, and will not play in Sunday’s season finale against Minnesota, according to a report.
Michael Bruntz of 247Sports reported that guards Cam Mack and Dachon Burke have both been indefinitely suspended by Hoiberg. They are both headed back to Lincoln, after the team made the trip to Minnesota.
Mack was also suspended for Nebraska’s game against Michigan earlier this week. This marks the fifth time this season Mack has faced disciplinary action from Hoiberg, and it’s the second game he’s missed this year.
Details regarding the suspension were not mentioned in the tweet. Mack faced the suspension earlier this week for a “violation of team rules.”
