Video: Husker fans rush court after Devaney finale

That’s how you close out an arena. While it wasn’t the prettiest game one’s seen, Nebraska edged Minnesota 53-51 on Wednesday night in the final game at the Bob Devaney Sports Center.

Think the fans enjoyed the final 40 minutes at the arena? You bet. Following the final buzzer, they poured onto the court to celebrate. Watch the Big Ten’s latest court rush now.

People gave Nebraska a tough time for rushing the court after beating a team the caliber of Minnesota, an unranked foe that, by the way, upset then-No. 1 Indiana last week. But the opponent didn’t matter on this night. If it was a close game and the Huskers finished on top, a storming was possible.

We’re talking about the last game in an arena’s history here. Also, first-year coach Tim Miles has rejuvenated this program and, for a change, there seems to be energy and excitement around Nebraska basketball.

Storm away, Huskers!
