Lincoln – Nebraska senior guard Kobe Webster was honored as one of five student-athletes named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District® VII team on Thursday.

Webster, who graduated from Western Illinois in three years with a 3.75 GPA, is currently working on his master’s degree in educational administration and carries a 3.75 GPA in his master’s degree program. It is the second time Webster has been a first-team all-district pick, as he was also tabbed in 2019 at Western Illinois.

On the court, Webster has totaled over 1,600 career points and 300 assists during his collegiate career, after averaging 8.1 points per game for the Huskers last season. He had a pair of 20-point efforts last season, including a season-high 23-point performance at Northwestern. Webster ranked second on the Huskers in 3-pointers while shooting 38 percent from beyond the arc.

Webster is joined on the first team by Max Abmas (Oral Roberts), Avery Anderson (Oklahoma State), Brady Manek (Oklahoma) and Matt Pile (Omaha).  First-, second- and third-team Academic All-America® honorees will be announced later this month, as Webster will look to become the first Husker basketball player to earn the honor since Shavon Shields in 2015 and 2016.

Nebraska leads all NCAA programs with 340 Academic All-Americans.
