Huskers Host Gophers in Devaney Center’s Final Bow

One final time, it’s game night at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. The Husker men’s basketball team closes the old barn down after 37 years of faithful service tonight, as they host Minnesota. It’s also senior night for the Huskers, who will honor Brandon Ubel, Dylan Talley and Andre Almeida in a pregame ceremony. The Huskers have never had a losing season at the Devaney Center, winning games at a .751 percentage in the building’s history. The Gophers come in to tonight’s game on a two-game winning streak, and have reached 20 wins for the fifth time in six seasons under Tubby Smith. The Huskers fell to Minnesota 84-65 in their first meeting this season back on January 29 despite a 30-point effort from Ray Gallegos. Tip-off tonight in Lincoln is set for 8:06.
