The Nebraska men's basketball team looks to snap a two-game losing streak, as the Huskers play host to No. 22 Michigan Wednesday evening at the Bob Devaney Sports Center.

Tipoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. and the game will be televised nationally on the Big Ten Network with Eric Collins and Shon Morris on the call. The game will also be available on BTN.com and the BTN2Go App on select mobile devices.

The Nebraska-Michigan game will also be carried across Nebraska on the 30-station IMG Husker Sports Radio Network with Kent Pavelka and Matt Davison calling all of the action. The game can also be heard on the Internet at Huskers.com and season audio packages are also available for purchase on the Huskers' App for your iPhone or iPod Touch.

Tickets are available for Wednesday's matchup with the Wolverines for as little as $10 by visiting Huskers.com or calling 800-8-BIGRED. In addition, fans with tickets to Wednesday's game can also use those tickets for general admission seating for Thursday's Husker women's basketball game against the Wolverines.

Wednesday night's game is also Red Cross Night, as Husker student-athletes and volunteers will be collecting donations for the Cornhusker Chapter of the American Red Cross.

Wednesday's game between the Huskers and Wolverines is the first matchup on the basketball court since December 28, 1992, and Michigan's first visit to Lincoln since the Huskers toppled No. 1 Michigan, 74-73, on Dec. 12, 1964.

Nebraska (11-11, 3-8 Big Ten) comes off a disappointing 69-61 loss to Minnesota on Sunday afternoon. The Huskers shot just 30 percent in the second half as the Gophers used a 9-0 run midway through the second stanza to regain the lead for good. Bo Spencer led three Huskers in double figures with 18 points and five assists, while Toney McCray and Brandon Richardson added 15 and 10 points, respectively, in the losing effort.

Michigan (17-7, 7-4 Big Ten) also looks to bounce back following a 64-54 loss to Michigan State on Sunday. In that game, the Wolverines shot just 40 percent, as Zack Novak's 14 points led three Michigan players in double figures.
