LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) New Nebraska coach Fred Hoiberg might want to consider writing his players' names on masking tape and sticking it across their foreheads so he can keep everybody straight.
"I've called them the wrong name a lot. There's no doubt about it," Hoiberg said Tuesday after a practice for next month's trip to Italy. "We're still getting to know these guys, they're still getting to know us, what our style is like."
The Cornhuskers leave Aug. 3 and will play four games against club and professional teams over nine days. The trip will be the epitome of a team-building exercise. Gone are 11 players accounting for 98 percent of the scoring and 96 percent of the rebounding.
