Lincoln, NE (AP) - The Nebraska men's basketball team will wear throwback uniforms honoring the 1911-12 Cornhuskers for Saturday's game against Northwestern in Lincoln.

The 1911-12 Huskers won 14 of 15 games and were coached by the legendary E.O. "Jumbo" Stiehm (STEEM). Stiehm became the first coach in Missouri Valley Conference history to win both football and basketball titles in the same year.

The uniforms feature cream-colored tops and bottoms with a white accent stripe and an 'N' logo across the middle of the jersey. The 1911-12 jerseys did not have numbers. The number on the throwbacks is below the stripe as well as on the back.

About 50 former players, coaches and staff are returning to Lincoln for a private reception Friday and a tour of facilities. They'll be introduced at halftime.
