Huskers Add Division II Transfer Trevor Lakes

April 28, 2020

Nebraska landed a commitment from a Division II sharpshooter on Tuesday morning as Trevor Lakes, a transfer from the University of Indianapolis, signed with Nebraska.

Lakes is a 6-foot-7, 230-pound forward who will sit out the 2020-21 season and have one year to play in Lincoln.

“We are excited to have Trevor join our program,” Coach Fred Hoiberg said in a release. “He is an elite shooter with size and a high basketball IQ, and his skill set and understanding of the game will allow us to be creative in how we can maximize his abilities in our system. Trevor is a proven scorer who brings experience and a competitive spirit that will push everyone in our gym to play at a higher level.”

Lakes led Indianapolis in scoring the last two seasons and has taken more than 75% of his career field goal attempts from behind the arc. He’s a career 40.7% 3-point shooter with deep range and a quick release.

This season, Lake averaged 15.7 points and 6.2 rebounds per game while shooting 39.8% from 3 on 8.5 attempts per game. He scored in double figures in 26 of his 30 games with nine 20-point performances. Indianapolis went 24-6 and beat Loyola of Chicago in an exhibition game. Lakes scored a game-high 22 points on 7-of-14 shooting including 6-of-11 from 3.

He broke out as a sophomore, putting up 14.1 points and 5.5 rebounds per game while shooting 39.7% from 3 on 8.8 attempts per game. He started all 25 games he played in and notched a season-high of 27 points, shooting 7-of-11 from the field, 5-of-8 from 3 and 8-of-8 from the free-throw line.

Lakes started three games as a freshman, playing 13.5 minutes per game and averaging 5.6 points and 1.9 rebounds. He shot 45.2% from 3 on 3.7 attempts per game.

For his career, Lakes is also 96-of-173 (54.3%) inside the arc and 86-of-108 (70.6%) from the free-throw line.

Lakes is from Lebanon, Indiana. As a senior at Lebanon High School, he averaged 22.5 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.5 blocks.

After adding Lakes, Nebraska has one scholarship remaining for 2020-21.
