Sadler's future in question at Nebraska


LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Nebraska has scheduled a Friday afternoon news conference to discuss the future of the men's basketball program amid speculation that coach Doc Sadler will be fired.

The Cornhuskers finished 12-18 this season after losing 79-61 to Purdue in the first round of the Big Ten tournament on Thursday. It was the program's lowest win total since 2003.

The Huskers tied with Penn State for last place in the conference with a 4-14 record in their first season in the Big Ten. In the Huskers' final five years in the Big 12, Sadler's teams never finished higher than seventh.

Sadler is 101-89 overall with three NIT appearances at Nebraska but just 34-64 in conference games.
