Kearney, Neb. – Cranes fans, the ice is gone! Things are really heating up in this nest, so be sure to come check it out!

On the floor tonight will be UNK star, Nick Branting. Branting was released on Tuesday from his previous injury and will be suiting up tonight. Don’t miss his first night in action as a Crane!

Don’t miss this Friday’s game, May 6th, as the Nebraska Cranes take on the Pennsylvania ValleyDawgs. Darryl Dawkins, former professional basketball player for the Philadelphia 76ers and the New Jersey Nets, is the head coach for the ValleyDawgs.
