Make your plans for NBA hoops in Lincoln. It was announced that the Chicago Bulls will play the Dallas Mavericks in a preseason game on Oct 23 at Pinnacle Bank Arena. The following day, the Nebraska Cornhuskers will host Chicago-based Northwestern.
If Doug McDermott remains with the Bulls, the former Creighton star will return to the state of Nebraska.
The Creighton product is averaging just 3.2 points a game this season and has had difficulty finding consistent minutes. He just returned from knee surgery.
