Nebraska football head coach Matt Rhule stormed the court on Tuesday night with a bunch of Nebraska basketball fans.
What a night for Nebraska basketball fans. Fans of the Cornhuskers in general. Fred Hoiberg’s team did something Nebraska hasn’t done since 1982 — beat a team ranked No. 1 by the AP poll.
There was the win over Kansas, the top team in the coaches poll decades ago. It was hard not to think of that game as Keisei Tominaga and C.J. Wilcher combined for eight 3-pointers. Nebraska basketball, as a team, knocked down 14.
The Huskers also played spectacular defense. They did as good a job as anyone this season on Zach Edey, who was held to just 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting. Maybe just as important, Edey only had one assist.
Purdue averaged 85 points a game coming into Tuesday’s game, yet Nebraska basketball held them to 73. It was the kind of effort that would make the Blackshirts proud.
Fittingly, Nebraska football head coach Matt Rhule was in attendance (looks like with his daughter). Rhule is an avid Nebraska sports fan. He’s constantly seen at other Husker sporting events and on Tuesday night, following the historic win, Rhule stormed the court with all the other rabid fans.
STORM THAT COURT!!

And I love it! I’m pretty sure I saw Trev Alberts right there next to him. That’s Nebraska and that’s why the Huskers found the right man to be their head coach. It’s about more than football.
Rhule is part of Nebraska now and that was evident again on Tuesday night.
