Nebraska's #AveryStrong shirts.

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.
