LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Derrick Walker says his teammates call him “Grandpa.” That nickname will stick for another season, as Walker is returning to the Huskers for a fifth season of college basketball.

Walker averaged 9.5 points last year, while breaking the program’s single-season field goal percentage record.

Nebraska head coach Fred Hoiberg says the senior forward ranks among his favorite players he’s coached.
