Nebraska G Dalano Banton posts triple-double in blowout victory for the Huskers
Nebraska’s Dalano Banton went off for his first career triple-double in Thursday’s game against Doane.
Banton is playing his first season with the Huskers after transferring in after one season at Western Kentucky. After sitting out last season following the transfer, he has proven to be a key contributor early on.
The 6-foot-9 versatile guard is averaging 13.8 points per game, good for second on the Huskers to Teddy Allen. He also averages 7.2 rebounds per game and 5.0 assists per game, both tops for Nebraska.
On Thursday, Banton contributed a little bit of everything. He scored 13 points on a very efficient 5-for-7 from the floor, including 1-for-2 from three-point range. Banton also posted 11 rebounds and dished 10 assists to complete the triple-double.
If the triple-double isn’t enough for you, Banton also added a steal and three blocks in the dominant performance for Nebraska. Banton was one of five Huskers in double figures as the team rolled Doane by a final score of 110-64.
Next up for Nebraska will be a road trip to No. 12 Wisconsin on Dec. 22 to begin B1G play.
