The University of Nebraska announces they will play in an event dubbed the Golden Window Classic hosted by Elevate Hoops. The multiple-team event (MTE) will take place Wednesday, Nov. 25 to Sunday, Nov. 29, and will feature games at both Pinnacle Bank Arena and the Bob Devaney Sports Center. A MTE allows D-1 schools to increase their number of allowed games from 25 to 27.
The eight schools participating in the event includes at this time Nebraska, LSU, Saint Louis, Northern Iowa, Western Kentucky, San Francisco, Nevada and Illinois State. With teams playing 2-3 games each we're looking at anywhere from 8 to 12 total games. Given the tourney takes place over 5 days, we're looking at 2-3 games per day at 2 venues.
Currently the plan is to sell tickets at Pinnacle Bank Arena only, and capped at 25 percent capacity. Fans will not be allowed at the Devaney Sports Center. Seems probable that Nebraska will play its 2-3 games at PBA. At this point the broadcasts are up in the air which means we could see a combination of games televised on sports channels (ESPN, BTN, etc) or streamed via PPV.
** Update **
Illinois State and Northern Iowa dropped out of the event.
Chadron St was added to fill in a couple of games.
