Huskers in the NBA: Week 1
The NBA regular season officially tipped off on October 18.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers currently have three former players in the league: Dalano Banton, Bryce McGowens, and Isaiah Roby.
Banton is entering his second season with the Toronto Raptors. McGowens was selected by the Charlotte Hornets in the second round of the 2022 NBA Draft. He was his NBA debut this week.
Roby was originally drafted by the Detroit Pistons in 2019, but he was quickly traded to the Dallas Mavericks. In the middle of rookie season, he was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder, where he played for three seasons. He joined the San Antonio Spurs this offseason.
Let’s take a look at how each player fared in their Week 1 action.
