Nebraska Men’s Basketball Coach Tim Miles added 6’3 guard Tim Wagner to the Husker basketball roster for the upcoming season. Wagner, from Galesville, WI., will walk on this season. Miles and Tim’s dad, Mark Wagner, were both students at the University of Mary in North Dakota.
“Tim Wagner is a guy who’s dad was one of my best friends in college,” Miles said. “I’ve known his dad, Mark, since 1985. When Mark came to me and said ‘Would you consider Tim?’ I said, ‘Absolutely. This guy’s like blood.’ He’s a good player. He’s that prototypical non-scholarship guy you want who could maybe have an impact on your program.”
Wagner played high school ball for his father at Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau High School, finishing with 1,354 points, 249 rebounds, 280 assists and 83 steals. Wagner averaged 23.8 points per game as a senior, leading G-E-T to a 20-5 record and an appearance in the sectional finals. He was chosen as a Division 3 all-state pick.
