LINCOLN (KMTV) — Dachon Burke is one of just two returning players for Nebraska men's basketball. The junior guard sat out last season after transferring from Robert Morris, where he was an all-conference selection averaging 17.6 points per game.
"Obviously, I got recruited by (Tim) Miles," Burke said. "Things happen for a reason. I love Miles still to this day. Me and him have a good relationship. But Hoiberg, he's a great guy. I get to start a new chapter in my life with new teammates and people I'll call my brothers for the rest of my life."
Burke hopes to play a pivotal role in new coach Fred Hoiberg's offense.
"He's very talented," Hoiberg said. "He's got one thing on his mind a lot of the time and that's scoring the ball, which some people just have that mentality. He's got that in his DNA."
Burke & the rest of the Big Red head to Italy starting on August 3.
