The Nebraska volleyball team announced its 2019 schedule on Thursday.

Seventeen of Nebraska's 29 scheduled regular-season matches will be held at the Devaney Center.

The Huskers will open the regular season on Friday, Aug. 30 against Creighton at the Devaney Center and will play UCLA the following night.

NU's final non-conference match will be at home against Wichita State on Saturday, Sept. 21.

Once again, Nebraska will play seven Big Ten opponents both home and away. The six single-play opponents this season will be: Illinois (away), Michigan (home), Indiana (away), Penn State (home), Minnesota (away) and Ohio State (home).

The annual Red-White Scrimmage will be held on Saturday, Aug. 24 at the Devaney Center. The start time will be determined at a later date.

Lincoln – Nebraska Men’s Basketball Coach Fred Hoiberg announced the addition of graduate transfer Haanif Cheatham (prounoucned Hah-NEEF CHEE-tum) to the Nebraska basketball roster for the 2019-20 campaign.

He reached double figures 21 times, including a season-high 24 points on 7-of-12 shooting against Jackson State. In Big East play, he reached double figures 12 times, including three 20-point performances in a four-game stretch. He also averaged 16.5 points per game in the Eagles’ two Big East Tournament contests.

As a sophomore, Cheatham averaged 8.7 points and 3.8 rebounds per game, while starting 25 of 32 games for Marquette, which went 19-13 and reached the NCAA Tournament. He was third on the team with 71 assists, while cutting his turnovers from 88 to 51. He reached double figures 14 times, including six consecutive games to open the season. He had a season-high 22 points on 8-of-11 shooting vs. IUPUI, while reaching double figure six times in Big East action, including 17 against Seton Hall. He started Marquette’s first five games as a junior, averaging 8.2 points and 2.8 rebounds per game, before transferring.

Cheatham was a consensus top-100 prospect coming out of Pembroke Pines Charter High School under head coach Dave Roca. As a senior, he helped his team to a regional finals appearance, averaging 24.0 points. 5.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game before falling to eventual state champion Miami Norland. He garnered first-team all-state honors by the Florida Association of Basketball Coaches. As a junior, he averaged 26.2 points, 7.5 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 3.0 steals per game en route to another regional final appearances. His junior campaign was highlighted by four triple-double efforts, which helped earn Florida Dairy Farmer's Class 6A Player of the Year accolades.
