Nebraska basketball enjoys a rich history that dates back over a century. The Huskers have made 24 postseason appearances in program history, including 16 berths over the last 27 years. In that time, Nebraska has averaged 18 wins per season.
At the conference level, Nebraska has placed 44 players on all-conference teams and has had two players named the league’s top player, including Venson Hamilton in 1999. Nebraska has had 25 players score at least 1,000 career points in program history; most recently Ryan Anderson achieved the feat in 2010.
Nebraska has developed its share of players for the professional ranks. The Huskers have had 26 NBA draft picks, including first-round selections Rich King, Eric Piatkowski and Tyronn Lue.
In recent seasons, players like Erick Strickland and Mikki Moore have blossomed in the NBA while other former Huskers, such as two-time All-Big 12 performer Aleks Maric, have starred overseas.
