He eventually left the game and was taken to a hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana. A flu strain was diagnosed in place of COVID-19 Heuberg. Although the flu can also be very serious, Hoiberg seems to have made a full recovery.
In a statement, Hoiberg praised the Nebraska medical team that took care of the team. He also stated that the basketball team will not resume its activities until it is absolutely safe. At least four games for the Cornhuskers have been direct hits so far. For now, they are playing against the Nittany Penn State Lions.
