Huskers announce Tai Webster signing

Nebraska head coach Tim Miles announced the signing of New Zealand point guard Tai Webster (Auckland, N.Z./Westlake Boys) on Tuesday.

The 6-foot-3 Webster was the leading scorer (13.5 ppg) for the New Zealand Senior National Team last summer during Olympic qualifying.

"I'm excited to have Tai join us," Miles said. "He is an excellent player who will thrive in our style of play and has high-level international playing experience, which will help him acclimate to basketball in the U.S."

Webster joins small forward Nick Fuller (Sun Prairie, Wis./Sun Prairie) and shooting guard Nathan Hawkins (Rowlett, Texas/Rowlett) as fellow 2013 signees for the Cornhuskers.
