The Nebraska basketball program’s second-annual Legends Weekend will take place this weekend (Feb. 28-March 1), as the Huskers will take on Northwestern at Pinnacle Bank Arena. Saturday’s game, which is a 4 p.m. start on ESPNU is already sold out.
The event was created by Coach Tim Miles with the Husker Athletic Department and the N-Club to welcome back former players and staff and recognize them for their contributions to the Nebraska basketball program, as well as have the current Husker team connect with former players and learn more about the history of Nebraska basketball.
As of Monday morning, nearly 50 former players, coaches and staff are returning to Lincoln for the weekend’s events, which includes a private reception on Friday night, a chance to tour Nebraska’s basketball facilities and watch Saturday’s walk-through before the Huskers take on Northwestern. In addition, the former players will be introduced and recognized during Saturday’s halftime ceremony.
Husker students will also have a chance to be a part of the special day, as the first 700 students in attendance in the Red Zone will receive a custom-made shirt to celebrate Legends Weekend.
