Today the Nebraska men’s basketball program added forward Dedoch Chan to the 2018 class. He comes to the program from Mississippi Gulf Coast College where he averaged 16.8 points per game and a whopping 8.3 rebounds per game. He played one year for MGCC and will have three remaining for the Huskers.

Dedoch will add much needed size to the rotation going into this season with the transfer of Jordy Tshimanga earlier this summer. The Rochester, Minnesota native should enjoy his time playing in the Big Ten Conference.
More from the athletic department’s release on the acquisition:
“A first-team NJCAA All-Region 23 selection, he totaled eight double-doubles as a freshman, highlighted by a 33-point, 17-rebound performance against Meridian CC. A two-time Mississippi Association of Community & Junior Colleges Player of the Week, Chan was a first-team All-MACJC South selection following his freshman campaign. He had nine games of at least 20 points, including a stretch of seven straight down the stretch, as he shot 47 percent from the field, 31 percent from 3-point range and 73 percent from the line for the year. He had a season-high 34 point effort in a four-point win over Southwest Mississippi and had eight or more rebounds on 14 occasions, including three games of at least 15 rebounds”
We welcome Dedoch to the Nebrasketball family and look forward to his contributions to the program.
