NEW YORK (KMTV) — Nebraska forward Isaiah Roby was selected in the 2nd round (45th overall) of the NBA Draft on Thursday and is headed to the Dallas Mavericks. The Detroit Pistons had the pick but traded the rights to Dallas. Roby becomes the first Husker taken in 20 years. Venson Hamilton was the last NU played drafted back in 1999.
Roby averaged nearly 12 points per game this past season for the Big Red.
