Husker Men’s Hoops Adds Post Player From Africa

The Nebraska men’s basketball team has added a post player from Africa to its roster for this season. 

Matar Diop committed to the Huskers yesterday via social media.  Diop is a 6-foot-9 player from Senegal who was developed by the NBA Academy Africa program.  Last season he played for a high school in Erie, Pennsylvania. 

Meanwhile, Nebraska will travel to Spain this Friday.  The Huskers will visit Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona, playing once in each city against local teams.
