There are 351 Division I basketball teams and some of them — especially those nearby — recruit the state of Nebraska at a high rate.

This year there are 29 Nebraskans — individuals who played at least one season at a Nebraska high school — on Division I rosters, including five walk-ons.

With the start of basketball practice last week, here is a look at which Nebraskans appeared on the rosters.
