Huskers set to play Oregon St. in basketball in South Dakota


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Nebraska will play Oregon State in a men’s basketball game at the Sanford Pentagon on Nov. 18, the second time in five years the Cornhuskers have played in the venue.

Sanford Sports announced the matchup Thursday and said ticket information would be released later.

The Pentagon has hosted more than 80 Division I men’s and women’s basketball games since opening in 2013.

Nebraska defeated Oklahoma State 79-56 in front of a standing room-only crowd of 3,800 on Dec. 16, 2018. Oregon State will be making its first appearance at the building.

“We have a lot of alumni in the Sioux Falls area, so I expect there to be a lot of red and white in the crowd in November which will help make for a phenomenal atmosphere for a college basketball game,” Nebraska coach Fred Hoiberg said.

Nebraska was 16-16 last season and returns four players who started at least 12 games. The Beavers were 11-21. Oregon State has won six of 10 all-time meetings with the Huskers.

“Sanford is an incredible partner and the Pentagon is an unbelievable facility bred for hoops,” Oregon State coach Wayne Tinkle said. “Throw in the total support of the Sioux Falls community and this will prove to be a valuable experience for our program.”
