Lincoln, NE-- On Friday afternoon, people would have thought that it was a Husker football weekend, since hundreds of people were cheering on the boys’ basketball team.
The Rococo Theatre threw a Husker party and Associate Athletic Director; Paul Meyers said this is the first time basketball is officially coming together.
“You see this in football season, but to have something in March...it’s special,” Marc Shkolnick said.
The team had a huge lead but ended on a somber note, when the Huskers fell to Ohio State 71-67.
Gage Reghwisch from Wayne, NE said he was disappointed and wanted to see the team win.
Most fans that 10/11 News spoke with say they still have hope, especially when the season likely isn’t over yet.
“I think we can be in, but it depends on who they play,” Steve Petersen of Lincoln said, “Its part of learning curb, and they’ll get better with the rebound.”
