Former Husker basketball player to play for international team

Former Husker basketball player Lance Jeter will join a team of former college standouts in China beginning this week for an international tournament. Jeter, who was an All-Big 12 performer at Nebraska in 2010-11, will play in nine games, taking on National B teams from China, Lithuania and Germany.

Last season, Jeter played pro ball in Holland, averaging 16.8 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.3 steals per game. He shot 59.6% from the field, including 36.7% from 3-point range, while leading his team in both scoring and assists. He finished second among all players in scoring and was fifth in assists.

As a senior at Nebraska, Jeter led the Huskers to 19 wins and a berth in the NIT, averaging 11.7 points, 4.5 assists and 4.4 rebounds per game to earn third-team All-Big 12 honors. He became the first Husker since 2001 to lead NU in both scoring and assists in the same season, while ranking on NU’s single-season top-10 lists in both assists (145, 6th) and assists per game (4.53, 8th).
