Nebraska basketball center Jordy Tshimanga had started every game for the team this season until the Huskers’ road contest against Penn State on Jan. 12.
Leading up to the game against the Nittany Lions, a report was out that Tshimanga wasn’t happy with how the season was going. His status at the time was to be determined within a few days, but on Jan. 13, the sophomore wasn’t at practice after he requested a scholarship release to transfer.
