Lansman caps stellar hoops career at UN-Kearney
KEARNEY, NEB. -- The post-season honors continue to accumulate for University of Nebraska-Kearney senior men’s basketball player Trey Lansman of Harlan.
Lansman, who finished his career with 2,042 points to rank fifth on UNK’s all-time scoring list, was named first-team All-MIAA for the second straight year after leading the Lopers with per-game averages of 21.4 points, 9.5 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.4 steals this past season. He was among the national leaders (NCAA Division II) all winter in points, rebounds, minutes (36.7 per game) and double-doubles (15).
More recently, Lansman became just the eighth UNK player in the D2 era to be named All-Region (second team) by the Conference Commisioner’s Association. He was also named to the All-District second team by the National Association of Basketball Coaches and is a four-time member of the MIAA Academic Honor Roll, carrying a 3.55 GPA with a major in Health and P.E., K-12.
Lansman, a 6-foot-7 forward, wasn’t the only former Harlan Community star playing for UNK as 6-foot-5 sophomore forward Kyle Juhl also helped the Lopers finish 16-14 overall and 11-8 in the MIAA (Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association).
Juhl, like Lansman, was one of just three Lopers to play in all 30 games during the season. He started five times and averaged 22.6 minutes, 5.5 points and 2.8 rebounds a night - slightly above his freshman numbers from a year ago.
At HCHS, Lansman and Juhl were teammates on back-to-back Cyclone state tournament teams, including the 3A runner-up in 2013. They combined to earn three consecutive Council Bluffs Daily Nonpareil All-Area Player of the Year awards from 2014-2016.
