While most of the focus has been on the Cornhusker football and their chances of making it to the Big Ten Championship next month, there are amazing things also going on with Husker Men’s basketball. Now it is time to meet the players of the Husker Basketball team, starting with Freshman Tai Webster.
Tai Webster is the Huskers throwback and at 6’ 4” he has enough speed and size in order to get into lane while at the same time shooting with a touch that is able to extend the defense. Before joining the Huskers, he was on the national team for New Zealand during the summer of 2013 and averaged over 13 points during each game against some of the best players internationally. After high school, Webster also played for the National Basketball League and at 18 years old he was the league’s youngest player.
Reaching international and national acclaim in his native New Zealand, Webster decided to attend the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and to play basketball for them. He choose Nebraska over many other prestigious schools including SMU, LSU, St. Mary’s, Wake Forest, Virginia, and Pittsburgh. Despite being only a freshman for the Husker team, Webster has the experience that is necessary in order to help bring this Husker team to victory.
