Rarely does Nebraska pull up a Mr. (insert state) in basketball. I mean, it’s hard enough to do it in football, let alone in the sport of basketball.
But, Fred Hoiberg and his staff did just that with Samari Curtis. Xenia, Ohio’s own signed with Nebraska this past spring and has brought his talents to the Cornhusker State.
He was one of the top players out of the state and was named Ohio Mr. Basketball for 2019. Not a bad honor to have considering he shares the honor with other winners such as Lebron James (‘01,’02,’03) O.J. Mayo (‘05,’06) and Trey Burke (‘11).
