Nebraska senior guard announces plan to return for 2021-22 basketball season
Nebraska has seen a number of players from the 2020-21 team enter their name into the NCAA transfer portal, but the Huskers did receive some good news this week. A senior guard is coming back for one more year.
Kobe Webster, a 6-foot guard who transferred in from Western Illinois before the season, has announced that he will be returning to Lincoln for the 2021-22 season. He started the final five games of the year for the Huskers.

Webster played well in his first season at Nebraska, averaging 8.1 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game. The senior guard stepped up his play in the final six contests of the year, scoring in double figures five times and averaged 10.8 points per game. He scored a season-high 23 points in Nebraska’s regular season finale against Northwestern.
Since the start of the 2020-21 basketball season, Nebraska has seen five players enter their name into the NCAA transfer portal, including leading scorer Teddy Allen. The return of Webster should give head coach Fred Hoiberg some stability at the guard position entering his third season in Lincoln.
The Huskers ended the 2020-21 season with a 7-20 record.
