Huskers to Play in 2017 AdvoCare Invitational

November 25, 2016

Fresh off a first round win in the Wooden Legacy, Nebraska has announced its exempt tournament for next season. The Huskers will play in the AdvoCare Invitational in Orlando, Florida on Nov. 23, 24 and 26.

The tournament field includes Long Beach State, Marist, Missouri, Oregon State, St. John’s, Central Florida and West Virginia in addition to the Huskers.

The tournament will take place at the ESPN Wide World of Sports. Nebraska will be taking part in the AdvoCare Invitational for the first time, but it marks the fourth time in five years that the Huskers have played in an ESPN-sponsored tournament.

Xavier won the AdvoCare Invitational in 2015. The 2016 field includes Florida, Gonzaga, Indiana State, Iowa State, Quinnipiac, Seton Hall, Stanford and Miami.

Nebraska held on to beat Dayton in the first round of the Wooden Legacy on Thursday night and will play No. 14 UCLA in the second round Friday night at 11 p.m.
