Two Huskers Named to NABC Honors Court
Nebraska basketball players Shavon Shields and Trevor Menke were recognized for their efforts in the classroom Monday, as both players were named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Honors Court.
Shields, who majors in biological sciences, has played a major role in the Huskers resurgence under Tim Miles. Last season, he earned honorable-mention All-Big Ten honors, averaging 12.8 points and 5.8 rebounds per game. A two-time Big Ten Player of the Week, Shields reached double figures 21 times, including a career-high 33 point effort against Illinois. One of three Husker co-captains in 2013-14, Shields has started the Huskers' last 51 games dating back to the 2012-13 season.
Menke makes his second appearance on the NABC Honors court, as the rising senior received his undergraduate degree in social science education last May. A walk-on, Menke played in five games as a junior, hitting a 3-pointer in the win over Purdue. Over his last two seasons, he has committed just one turnover in 20 appearances. He was chosen as the Huskers' Scout Team Player of the Year in 2013-14, as Nebraska went 19-13 and reached the NCAA Tournament.
The honor is presented to players who are a junior or senior academically at an institution and posted a GPA of 3.20 or better at the conclusion of the 2013-14 academic year.
DANGER RENEW DAVIS' HEAD COACHING CONTRACT FOR 2015
Nebraska Danger Indoor Professional Football Team Owner and President Charlie Bosselman is pleased to announce that Danger Head Coach Mike Davis will continue in his role for the 2015 Danger season.
"We are very pleased to re-sign Coach Davis for the 2015 season," said Bosselman. "We were thrilled to finish our season in the United Bowl for the second year in a row, and Mike's leadership and coaching experience continue to move the Danger forward. We have an awesome fan base to support us and we're excited to continue having Coach Davis on our staff and are excited for season five."
Coach Davis remarks, "I am excited to continue to build the Danger Football organization both on and off the field. The community of Grand Island has the best fans in the league and they deserve one of the best teams in the league to go along with that. I am happy that the Bosselman family continues to see me as the leader of this team again next season."
Born and raised on the east coast, 2015 will be Davis' fifth season at the helm with the Danger. Previously, Davis played six years in the arena and indoor leagues before moving into coaching. In 2014, Davis led the Danger to their second consecutive playoff appearance and win as they defeated the Colorado Ice in the Intense Conference Championship game. Under his leadership, the Danger have posted a 30-30 record, including an 11-5 mark this past season.

Webster Named to New Zealand Travel Squad
Nebraska sophomore Tai Webster was named to New Zealand's 14-player traveling squad Saturday night, as the team continues preparations for the FIBA World Cup in late August.
Webster, one of two teenagers on the roster, rejoined the team for the final two games of New Zealand's series with South Korea this week. He averaged 6.0 ppg on 63 percent shooting in two games and had eight points, two steals and a pair of wins in the deciding game of the series earlier Saturday.
The team will compete in the Three Nations Tournament in Seoul, South Korea, beginning on July 29 before traveling to China, Lithuania and Serbia in August.
The final 12-member roster will be announced following the games in Serbia. Six of the 14 players on the roster have competed in previous FIBA World Cups.
Webster is the second Husker to spend the summer with his nation's national team, as Leslee Smith competed with the British Virgin Islands team earlier this month.
Nebraska-Kearney track & field team members Kevin Carder, Dillon Schrodt and Jackie Ziemke have been selected to the 2014 Capital One Academic All-District 7 teams, as selected by CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America).
To be eligible for this squad, a student-athlete must carry a 3.30 cumulative GPA, be a starter or key reserve and been at his/her current school for one academic year. Finally, sports information directors (SID's) vote on the makeup of the Academic All-American and All-District teams.
District 7 includes schools from the MIAA, NSIC (Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference) and GAC (Great American Conference).
This is the second year of the expanded Academic All-America program as CoSIDA moved from recognizing a University Division (Division I) and a College Division (all non-Division I) and has doubled the number of scholar-athletes honored. The expanded teams include NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III participants, while the College Division Academic All-America Team combines NAIA, Canadian and two-year schools.
Carder maintains a 3.99 GPA as Political Science major. Currently running across Europe, the Albion native was the Lopers team MVP in cross country in each of the past two years while being an NCAA provisional qualifier at 10,000 meters this spring.
In the ring, Ziemke (Waco) earned All-American honors in the shot this past March thanks to a third place finish. Also qualifying for the NCAA Outdoor Championships, she has a 3.93 GPA in Business Administration.
A junior from Lincoln North Star, Schrodt was an All-American in the heptathlon at the NCAA Indoor meet with a third place finish. At last week's NCAA Outdoor meet, he placed ninth in the decathlon and also was a qualifier in the 110 hurdles. He maintains a 3.86 GPA in Math (grades 7-12).
