Huskers hold first practice of new season

By  | 

LINCOLN, Neb. — The Nebraska men’s basketball team held its first practice of the new season Tuesday.

Many have higher expectations for the Huskers in Tim Miles’ seventh year at the helm, after going 22-11 last season, and with the return of James Palmer Jr. and Isaac Copeland Jr., who both entered the NBA Draft but didn’t hire agents and later withdrew to return to Nebraska.

Palmer and Copeland, both seniors, along with senior Glynn Watson Jr. and junior Isaiah Roby, make up a talented and experienced starting group that will be leaned on heavily all season long.

The Huskers will hit the court for their first game on November 1 with an exhibition match against Wayne State at Pinnacle Bank Arena.
