Nebraska senior guard Tai Webster was named an All-Big Ten performer on Monday as the league released its postseason honors.
The media tabbed Webster as a second-team member, while the coaches voted him onto the third team.
Webster, a native of Auckland, New Zealand, is one of the most improved players in the conference, boosting his scoring average more than seven points from his junior to senior season. Webster averaged 17.2 points, 5.1 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.4 steals in 24.6 minutes per game while often taking on a difficult defensive assignment throughout the game.
Webster ranked second in the Big Ten in minutes per game, third in scoring average, sixth in steals per game and eighth in assists per game this season. Webster scored in double figures in 29 of Nebraska’s 30 games this season.
Freshman center Jordy Tshimanga was also picked as Nebraska’s Sportsmanship Award honoree.
