The college basketball career of Nebraska’s Matej Kavas is over. The graduate transfer announced the news with a tweet early Sunday morning.
“Unfortunately my college career ended early due to my hand injury,” Kavas wrote. “I felt like I still had things left to prove for this year and was feeling currently in a great basketball shape. However, I am extremely proud of the individual and team success I had through my entire college career. Thank you Nebraska for the opportunity this year and thanks to all the fans for the amazing support. I’ll do my best to support my guys on the bench thru the rest of the season.”
Kavas came to Nebraska from Seattle University, where he spent three seasons with the program. Last season, he played in 24 games and averaged 10.3 points and 4.6 points per game while shooting at a 46 percent clip from 3-point range.
This season, Kavas was averaging 5.3 points and 1.2 rebounds per game for the Huskers. He was shooting 38.4 percent from the floor and 33.8 percent from 3-point distance.
Nebraska is 7-18 on the season with a 2-12 mark in B1G play. The Huskers have six games remaining in the regular season before the B1G Tournament gets underway in March.
