Nebraska will play in a “secret” scrimmage against Wichita State on Oct. 26, Fred Hoiberg confirmed on Wednesday.

 

Hoiberg isn’t allowed to speak about the game specifically but said, generally, his team is looking forward to playing scrimmages before the season starts. His team needs it.

 

“The exhibition is a great benefit,” Hoiberg said. “Your guys, by that time, will be so sick of beating on each other and you’ll get a true test of playing against a high quality opponent.”

 

The game will be played in Wichita, in part because Nebraska wanted to see how they’d fare in a road game setting.

 

Wichita State finished 22-15 last season. The Shockers made it to the NIT Semifinal after missing the NCAA tournament.

 

With secret scrimmages, the two schools can change rules and create scenarios. Last year, Nebraska played at Iowa State in “secret.” In that, Nebraska played two 20 minutes halves, but hours between the two sessions.

 

“You can set the rules, you can play two 20 minute halves, you can put in a zone segment, a press segment, you can play your guys that maybe didn’t get a lot of minutes, you can have a segment for that,” Hoiberg said. “It is a great luxury.”

Nebraska will make a return trip to Koch Arena in a closed men’s basketball scrimmage against Wichita State on Saturday, October 26, The Eagle confirmed Wednesday following an original report by Stadium’s Jeff Goodman.

 

Gregg Marshall and the Shockers have some history with the Huskers, a 76-49 trouncing at Koch Arena in the opening round of the 2011 National Invitation Tournament. It was the first step of an eventual championship for WSU.

 

But that was eight years ago back when Doc Sadler was Nebraska’s coach and Nebraska was still in the Big 12.

 

Now the Huskers have moved on to the Big Ten with Fred Hoiberg starting his first season as head coach.

It will not be open to the public. Hence, why it is called a secret scrimmage.

It use to be they wouldn't even provide stats but somehow they would always leak.   Now I believe they are allowed to release some notes about the scrimmage.

 

 They need to get rid of the secret label and just call it a 'closed' scrimmage which is more accurate.

they play that in their practice gym? that is not the roundhouse.

 

The "real" game was supposed to be today so that might be just the managers playing.
