Nebraska guard Terran Petteway will begin embarking on his professional journey this week, as the NBA Combine takes place in Chicago.
Petteway, who graduated from Nebraska on Saturday, is one of 62 players invited to this week’s combine, and one of 39 underclassmen who will participate in the event which runs from Tuesday to Sunday.
The event includes medical testing, interviews with NBA teams as well as on-court sessions on Thursday and Friday which include five-on-five games, shooting drills, strength and agility testing.
Petteway was a two-time All-Big Ten performer for the Huskers during his career, as he finished his career 20th on NU’s career scoring list with 1,143 points in two season.
As a junior, he topped the Huskers and ranked fourth in the Big Ten in scoring at 18.2 points per game, while also placing among the Big Ten leaders in 3-pointers (2.2, eighth), assists (2.8, 14th) and steals (1.1, 15th) per game. In all, he was in double figures in 29 of 31 games, including 13 games with at least 20 points.
As a sophomore, he led the Huskers to 19 wins in the school’s first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1998, averaging a Big Ten-leading 18.1 points per game along with 4.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists per contest. Petteway was a unanimous first-team All-Big Ten selection and was also a first-team all-district pick by the NABC (coaches) and U.S. Basketball Writers Association. He had a pair of 30-point efforts in 2013-14, including a career-high 35 point effort against Minnesota.
The 2015 NBA Draft takes place on Thursday, June 25, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. It will be televised nationally by ESPN.
