The UNO men’s basketball team has grown in size. Former Norfolk standout Logan Strom and Wichita, KS native Brett Barney will join the Mavericks this fall as transfers.
Strom, a 6-foot-8 forward, will have to sit out this coming year after redshirting this past season in his only year at UC Davis. He’ll have three years of eligibility left while at UNO.
Strom averaged 16.8 points and 9.1 rebounds in 2016-17 as Norfolk captured its first Class A title in 30 years.
Barney, a 6-9 center, has spent the past three years at Wichita State after going to prep school at Sunrise Christian Academy following his graduation from Maize South High near Wichita.
He spent three seasons as a walk-on with the Shockers, and has two years of eligibility remaining. Barney will be immediately eligible to play for the Mavs this upcoming season. He came off the bench for the Shockers the last two seasons, scoring a total of 30 career points in 23 appearances combined.
