The Nebraska men's basketball team will be looking to snap a three game losing streak tonight when they host the Nittany Lions of Penn State.

This will be their first game since falling at home to nationally ranked Wisconsin in overtime, 70-69. That was their third one-point loss in conference play this season. Penn State is coming off back to back wins against Maryland and Illinois. The Huskers and Nittany Lions are set to tipoff tonight at 8:00.

Nebraska Head Coach Mike Riley announced Monday the addition of Bob Elliott to the Husker football coaching staff. Elliott brings 38 years of college coaching experience to the Nebraska program, most recently spending five seasons at Notre Dame. Elliott will coach the Nebraska safeties in 2017, and joins a defensive staff that is led by first-year coordinator Bob Diaco who was hired in January. Elliott and Diaco served on the same Notre Dame staff in 2012 and 2013.
