Former Division II sharpshooter commits to Nebraska hoops
Nebraska’s three-point shooting is getting some help.
Former Division II sharpshooter Trevor Lakes has committed to Nebraska’s basketball program after spending the last three years at the University of Indianapolis. The native of Lebanon, Indiana has been a 3-point specialist during his career with the Greyhounds, knocking down 40.7 percent of his shots from behind the arc.
During his three-year career at UIndy, Lakes played in 83 games with 56 starts. The 6-foot-7 forward averaged 11.8 points for his career, as well as 4.5 rebounds and 0.7 assists. Lakes averaged career-highs in all three categories during the 2019-20 campaign by posting 15.7 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game.
Lakes has had an excellent shooting percentage from everywhere on the floor during his career. Along with knocking down better than 40 percent of his shots from range, he posts a 43.9 percentage from the floor and is shooting 79.6 percent from the free throw line through three seasons.
Nebraska struggled from behind the 3-point line a season ago, shooting just 31.8 percent from distance. That percentage ranked 10th in the B1G and 268th nationally. The addition of Lakes should help to improve in that area in the 2020-21 season.
Lakes will have one season of eligibility remaining.
