(Neb)-"Common Cold" Forces Hoiberg To Leave Husker Game Early
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Nebraska men's coach Fred Hoiberg left the Huskers' opening round game in the Big Ten Tournament with about 4:00 left Wednesday night, but the school said afterward that it was only a "common cold" that forced him to leave.
Hoiberg was in visible discomfort on the Cornhuskers' bench much of the game. Assistant Doc Sadler, a former Husker head coach, took over after Hoiberg left the floor near the end of the 89-64 loss.
Nebraska did not make any players or coaches available to the media after the game, which saw Indiana go on a 16-1 run over the final 4:00 of the 1st half and open the 2nd with a 15-4 burst over the first 4:11.
