From the Husker Athletic Department:

“Head Coach Bob Ludwig begins his sixth season at Peru State and looks to bounce back after a 9-15 record last season. Ludwig, who played collegiately at nearby Nebraska Wesleyan, guided Peru State to a pair of NAIA National Tournament appearances in his first two years at the school (2017-18, 2018-19). This season, the Bobcats return 10 players, including their top three scorers. Senior Henry Tanksley is the team’s top returnee, as he averaged 17.5 points and 5.0 rebounds per game last season. Ty Griggs averaged 10.8 points per game in 23 contests, including 17 starts and shot nearly 40 percent from 3-point range, while Skyler Wilson averaged 10.7 points per game in 19 games. Isaac Simpson led PSC with 31 3-pointers and shot 41 percent from beyond the arc. One newcomer that has Husker ties is junior forward Dedoch Chan, who was on the Huskers’ 2018-19 roster, but did not play a game before leaving the team. Peru State, which begins its regular-season schedule on Thursday, averaged 73.5 ppg last year while shooting 45 percent from the floor and out-rebounding foes by 0.7 caroms per game.”
