Rob Dauster says Nebraska may have to be quarantined now.
A source confirmed to @NBCSports that Fred Hoiberg has been taken to the hospital. There's concern that the Nebraska team is going to have to be quarantined.
Knowing the severity of what's going on, allowing him to coach tonight was incredibly reckless by everyone at Nebraska.

The Cornhuskers lost the first-round game against Indiana. The news of Hoiberg going to the hospital comes at the same time that we learned Rudy Gobert became the first NBA player to test positive for Coronavirus, leading the league to suspend its season.
