He actually showed okay on the offensive side of things.  My question is, how did he do defensively?  That seems to be his ticket into the NBA.   Given the minutes played, he must have been doing something good.

And loyalty.

Tai career is the DVD you play to every incoming freshman, not to tuck n turn tail, not to quit when times are hard but to work like crazy on your craft, and build a legacy at a university not just a nice career. When I think of Husker Basketball (I'm 28) i think of Belcher, Lue, Maric, Anderson, Shields, Uber, and now Webster. Hopefully the players we have now we'll strive to be among them

Some of us supported Tai from the beginning and although frustrated at times, understood he was a work in progress.  His biggest issue to overcome was the overhype that he received.  But the kid started most of his freshman year on a team that qualified for the NCAA tournament.  But of course, there are some who will say we won despite his performance.

Yeah, the Uber kid was pretty good.  Some say better, even, than Lyft.

I think of Charles Richardson too... It felt like he was here for 10 years

 

but I definitely got to throw Petteway into that list

In today's Tunnel Talk at the Red Sea Scrolls, Robin Washut has some some positive information about chances for both Tai Webster and Terran Petteway to find a spot in the NBA this year.

 

Is playing in the D League considered finding a spot in the NBA?
