- They started this season off with a dominating 104-38 win over Union College on Thursday night.
- Nebraska most recent history with Doane took place on December 17th, 2020. This was a replacement game for the Huskers as they needed to replace Florida A&M on the schedule. The Huskers won 110-64 that day.
- The Tigers were picked to finish seventh out of eleven teams in the 2023/24 Great Plains Athletic Conference preseason poll. The Tigers are led by junior Brady Timm, who averaged 20.3 ppg to earn first-team All-GPAC honors in 2022-23.
- Believe it or not, there is a connection between the two head coaches tonight. Doane head coach Ian McKeithen was a basketball operations intern with the Timberwolves in 2007-08 while NU Head Coach Fred Hoiberg was assistant general manager.
This is an exhibition game. Sit back and enjoy it before the real fun begins.
