Webster transferred to Nebraska last year after graduating from Western Illinois. He carried a 3.75 GPA at NU while working on his master’s degree in educational administration. In March he announced that he’ll return for another season with the Huskers after averaging 8.1 points and 1.3 assists per game in 2020-21.

Webster earned Nebraska basketball’s ninth Academic All-America honor and the first since Shavon Shields in 2015 and 2016. Nebraska has produced a nation-leading 341 Academic All-Americans across all sports.

Pile carried a 3.95 GPA and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry. He will attend medical school at UNMC. The Summit League defensive player of the year in 2020, Pile averaged 10.4 points and 8.5 rebounds during his senior season in 2020-21.
