Run it Back: First Look at Fred Hoiberg's Huskers

October 31, 2019

Fans got their first real look at a near-full strength Nebrasketball team on Wednesday night in the Huskers’ 91-63 win against Doane.

Dalano Banton and Derrick Walker were in street clothes as they will be all season while sitting out as transfers. On Wednesday, Shamiel Stevenson joined them, as he will until either the end of the first semester or until the NCAA grants him a waiver for immediate eligibility.

Stevenson is unlike anyone else on the roster. At 6-foot-6 and 245 pounds with long arms, he’s strong enough to hold his own in the post against many of the frontcourt players Nebraska will face this season and is also skilled and athletic enough to fit into Nebraska’s four- and five-out offense.
