LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska Athletics announced Tuesday that men’s basketball player Isaac Copeland received a waiver from the NCAA and is immediately eligible for the 2017-18 season.

Copeland played in 73 games at Georgetown in two-plus seasons, making 49 starts for the Hoyas. As a sophomore in 2015-16, he averaged 11.1 points and 5.4 rebounds per game in 33 starts for the Hoyas.

The Huskers open the 2017-18 season on Tuesday, Nov. 7, as they host Northwood in an exhibition game before starting the regular season on Saturday, Nov. 11 against Eastern Illinois at Pinnacle Bank Arena.
