Nebraska basketball opens up practice for fun night in PBA

Nebraska basketball opened up their practice on Thursday for fans and the media to see.

LINCOLN, Neb. - After struggling from beyond the arc in 2014-15, Nebraska looks like they have improved from deep - even if it was only night.

Stats were not kept, but the Nebraska basketball team opened up half of their practice on Thursday night to show off the new roster to fans.

While the scrimmage got sloppy at times and the defense knew the offensive calls, Nebraska knocked down quite a few threes.

“We made a couple shots,” said Nebraska head coach Tim Miles, who instantly joked and gave credited per bad defense. “What I really enjoyed was the ball movement. You really just saw the ball move. I think you will see that more out of us.”

After an hour of practice, fans in attendance were treated to a skills competition and a team introduction. The night also included an autograph session for fans both from the women and men teams.

The night was full of multiple laughs.

Both Miles and women’s coach Connie Yori bantered back and fourth at half court about their 2015-16 roster.

During a three-point contest, Husker sharpshooter Andrew White only made four three-pointers in 30 seconds, looking somewhat nervous. A fan from the Nebraska student section made three shortly after. As you can imagine, most of the Nebraska players were ready to go nuts if White had lost the competition.
