LINCOLN — Just around the corner from a tunnel that leads to the Devaney Center court, Texas' coach was in the middle of a conversation with a team official when he first heard the Husker fans roar.
Nebraska's match started 30 minutes after the Longhorns secured their win Friday night. Jerritt Elliott had left a postmatch press conference when the sudden noise from the capacity crowd stopped him in his tracks.
