Ask Coach Miles Returns next week
The second installment of Ask Coach Miles will return next week, as fans can ask questions to the new Husker basketball coach via twitter. More details will be announced in the coming days, so remember to follow @huskerhoops or @coachmiles on twitter for details.
Congrats to Benny Parker
Congratulations are in order for Husker recruit Benny Parker, who was the winner of the 2012 DiRenna Award last night. The award has been around since 1954 and recognizes the top player in the Kansas City metro area. Some of the recent winners of the award have included Marcus Denmon, Alec Burks and Conner Teahan. Parker will join fellow Husker signee Shavon Shields in the Greater Kansas City Basketball Coaches Association All-Star Challenge at Shawnee Mission High School tonight.
Camping with Ryan Anderson and Paul Velander
A pair of former Husker basketball stars have teamed up to run some basketball camps this spring and sumer. Ryan Anderson and Paul Velander will be holding a shooting clinic in Lincoln on April 28th, and will have summer camps in Omaha beginning on June 5. Anderson scored 1,125 points in his four-year career at Nebraska and played in the NBDL this season, while Velander ranks in the top 10 in school history in both 3-pointers made and 3-point percentage.
