Keisei Tominaga returning to Nebraska for senior season
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — After going through the NBA Draft process, Keisei Tominaga announced his decision to return to Nebraska for his senior season on Wednesday.
It was the final day to keep his college eligibility.
He participated in one NBA pre-draft workout with the Indiana Pacers.
After the workout, he said in an interview, “My dream is to be an NBA player, so it was amazing to be here on the court.”
But he also acknowledged areas where he could improve, including defense and physicality.
Tominaga averaged 13.1 points per game while shooting 50.3% from the field and 40% from 3-point range.
“We are excited to have Keisei return for the 2023-24 season,” coach Fred Hoiberg said in a press release. “I think the process was very beneficial because it allowed Keisei to get feedback from NBA personnel and what he needs to keep working on.”
Hoiberg said Tominaga was a “catalyst” for the Huskers’ late-season success.
