Bio

Dalano Banton (pronounced duh-LAH-no BAN-ten) was the second former top-100 prospect to join the Husker roster, transferring from Western Kentucky to Nebraska in May of 2019. Banton, a 6-foot-8, 195-pound guard, will have three years of eligibility after sitting out the 2019-20 season.

Banton played 31 games at Western Kentucky in 2018-19, averaging 3.4 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. He made 12 starts and showed his versatility in a win over No. 15 Wisconsin when he nearly had a triple double with 13 rebounds, 10 assists and eight points in a career-high 38 minutes. Banton was one of only six players in Division I basketball to have a game with at least eight points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists in 2018-19.  He had three double-figure scoring efforts on the season, including a season-high 11 points against both Belmont and St. Mary’s, as he also had six assists and three blocks against the Gaels.

Banton, who reclassified into the 2018 senior glass after graduating early, was ranked in the top-100 recruits nationally in 2018 by Rivals (No. 80) and 247Sports (No. 92). He played senior year at Redemption (N.Y.) Christian Academy and was named conference MVP. He also played in the BioSteel All Canadian Game and finished with 19 points, eight rebounds and three steals on 9-of-16 shooting. Banton also played in the All Canadian Signature Game and named to the NPSI All-Tournament Team as a senior.
