Nebraska men's basketball schedules three non-conference matchups against Kansas State

LINCOLN — Nebraska and Kansas State men’s basketball are set to play three times over the next three seasons in three different locations, The World-Herald confirmed Wednesday.

The first matchup will be in Kansas City at the Sprint Center during the 2020-2021 season. The 2021-22 matchup will be in Lincoln, and the year after will be in Manhattan.

The Huskers and Wildcats have a lengthy history dating back to the Big Eight. The last matchup was in 2011, with KSU earning a 61-57 win.

The game in Kansas City will be a return for Nebraska coach Fred Hoiberg. Last time he was in the building, Iowa State won the Big 12 tournament. Hoiberg was 5-5 against K-State while at Iowa State.

Nebraska recently had a home-and-home with Kansas, another Big Eight foe.
