It’s been a long-time coming.
Former Nebraska basketball star Tyronn Lue, who led the Cavaliers to an NBA title in June, will have his No. 10 jersey retired on Feb. 2. He was at the Huskers’ game against Oregon on Saturday.

Lue averaged 15.9 points per game in his three-year Huskers career, including 21.2 points and 4.8 assists per game in 1996-97, his final season.
Lue, 39, won the that title in his first season as the Cavaliers head coach after taking over for David Blatt in January.
With Lue coaching, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving brought Cleveland back from a 3-1 series deficit against the Warriors.
