Nebraska's Thorbjarnarson says he'll pursue pro basketball

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Thorir Thorbjarnarson announced Friday he will skip his extra season of eligibility at Nebraska and pursue a professional basketball career.

The guard from Reykjavik, Iceland, started 43 of his 93 games since 2017 and had career averages of 4.8 points and 3.1 rebounds per game. He had his best season in 2019-20, when he scored 8.8 points a game and shot 37% on 3-pointers.

"Thorir has been a leader in our program and has done everything we've asked of him over the last two seasons," Nebraska coach Fred Hoiberg said. "We will continue to support him as he starts the next step of his basketball journey."
