“Dusty is a great kid on and off the court,” Nebraska Coach Kerry McDermott said. “He is learning that if he can improve his focus on the court and stay more intense that great things will happen in his future. Dusty and Marc (Herrmann) are our building blocks to this program, and we look for great things from both these guys to carry Nebraska tennis with respect in the Big Ten and nationally.”
