Nebraska Basketball Hall of Famer Brian Carr played for the Huskers from 1984-1987, and is the only player in NU history to score 1,000 points and dish out better than 600 assists.
Carr, a 6'0" point guard from Muncie, Indiana, finished his career at Nebraska with (then) fourteen school records, and played a big role in leading the Huskers to the post-season in each of the four seasons he played in Lincoln, including the schools first ever NCAA Tournament appearance in 1986.
Carr is our latest guest in this Sunday's edition of "Then & Now."

My wife and I share season tickets with another couple and yesterday was their turn to have tickets, so I went to buy a single ticket and was about ready to leave to watch it at home as there were numerous people looking for tickets and no one selling anywhere! Right when I was about to leave, a man with his wife and daughter asked if I just needed one ticket and I said yes. He said he was buying them from a scalper and he was paying $60 each for four tickets. He asked if I would pay $50 and I swallowed hard and said yes. This was the best $50 I ever spent!
