Steven M. Sipple, Parker Gabriel and Chris Basnett talk through what's on deck for the last week of Nebraska's spring football session and what recruits are expected to be in town for the Red-White Spring Game next weekend. After that, a conversation about what NU has to do on the diamond to have a chance at hosting an NCAA regional, Thor's decision not to come back to the men's basketball program and the end of the volleyball season. 

Nebraska basketball commit Blaise Keita turned in a career performance to lead Coffeyville (Kansas) Community College to a national title Saturday.

Keita scored 27 points, including seven of his team's first 11, as the Red Ravens defeated Cowley County (Kansas) CC 108-99 in the NJCAA final in Hutchinson, Kansas.

The 6-foot-10 Keita, a Class of 2022 forward, connected on 13 of 16 attempts and added nine rebounds. He had 15 points and four dunks in the first half.

Keita fouled out with 2:57 left in regulation, as Cowley nearly dug out of a second-half deficit that swelled to as many as 24 points.

Keita committed to the Huskers in February as Power Five schools such as Baylor, Minnesota, Arizona State and Oklahoma State showed interest in the Mali native.

He will have three years of eligibility with the Huskers.
