Saturday is #AveryStrong day for the Nebraska men’s basketball program. Avery Harriman, the 7-year-old son of Huskers’ assistant coach Chris Harriman, has battled leukemia since he was 2. He’s been an inspiration to Tim Miles’ team this season and the Huskers’ players are constantly interacting with their No. 1 fan. Saturday’s event will be part of the National Association of Basketball Coaches Suits and Sneakers Awareness Week. Chris Harriman says #Huskers players are constantly asking about Avery. “Its fun to see them be happy when hes doing well” #AveryStrong— Jake Bockoven (@jakebockoven) January 23, 2015Nebraska (11-7, 3-3 Big Ten) is set to host Michigan State (13-6, 4-2 Big Ten) in Lincoln Saturday.
