►Nebraska all-time top 15 for assists, games played and games started

2009-10 (Senior)
Sek Henry finished fifth on the team in scoring (7.5 ppg) and was second in assists with a career-high 91. His assist-to-turnover ratio (91-to-56) was also a career best, as were his 32 3-pointers and 37.2 percent shooting from outside the arc.

Henry was the most durable Husker over the past four seasons as he was the only Nebraska player in that time to play in every contest. He finished his career third in the school annals for games played (128) and was sixth in games started (99). Overall, he played more than 3,100 minutes in a Husker uniform, helping the team to 70 wins and two postseason appearances.

On the year, Henry scored in double figures eight times, with a career-best 21 points in a double-overtime victory against Texas Tech. He hit 6-of-11 shots from the floor (three 3-pointers) and all six shots from the free throw line while producing six assists without a turnover. Earlier in the season he produced his only career double-double with 11 points and a career-high 11 assists against TCU, when he just missed the program's first-ever triple-double as he also had a season-high seven rebounds.

Henry ranked among the top 15 in the league in assists (2.8 apg) and finished 14th in school history with 256 assists in his career.

2008-09 (Junior)
Following a strong offseason, Henry returned in great shape and quickly helped the Huskers as he found more consistency on the offensive end. He went on to start 29-of-31 games, becoming the only player to see action in every Husker contest (95 games) since coach Doc Sadler took over the program.

Henry posted his best season to date as a junior, improving his offensive numbers in nearly every category while also providing Nebraska with another solid lock-down defender on the wing. For the season, he was third on the team in scoring at 8.0 points while adding 3.4 rebounds per contest. He was second on the team with 64 assists and fifth with 29 steals.

Henry's work in the offseason helped the left-hander to hit a career-best 44.2 percent (84-of-190) from the floor and 34.2 percent (26-of-76) from beyond the arc. He finished the year third on the team in 3-pointers while nearly doubling his total from the previous two campaigns.

The diligent work Henry put in at the free throw line also helped him improve to 68.8 percent (55-of-80) on the season, easily a career best. Henry was especially solid at the line down the stretch run of the season. After opening the year hitting just nine of his first 20 attempts at the line, he went on to nail 46 of his last 60 charity shots (76.6 percent), including 11 of his last 12 overall. In the NIT, Henry set a school postseason record for most made free throws in a game without a miss as he went 7-of-7 at the stripe while leading Nebraska with 13 points.

That was one of 13 double-figure scoring games for Henry, a total that was more than his first two years combined. Twice he scored career highs with 19 points, first against Saint Louis and then again vs. Florida A&M. He posted a conference season high with 13 points in the league-opening win over eventual Elite Eight contender Missouri. Three times he posted double figures on the road in Big 12 play, including 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting in a victory over Texas Tech. It was the third time in four games Henry reached double figures, his most prolific scoring stretch in league play to date.

Nebraska added a second straight road win with Henry's help as he hit a pair of clutch 3-pointers and added five rebounds in a two-point win at Colorado. It was one of eight games on the season that Henry posted at least five rebounds, including a career-high nine boards, to go along with eight points and four assists, in a victory over Iowa State in the home finale.

Despite struggling from beyond the arc over the final month of the season, Henry overcame an injury hit a pair of big 3-pointers to help Nebraska to a third conference road win at Baylor. The victory sealed the Huskers' first .500 league season (8-8) for the first time in a decade.

2007-08 (Sophomore)
Henry continued to carve out his own spot in a guard-heavy Husker rotation. He saw action in all 33 contests, including 19 starts, while averaging 5.9 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game.

Henry found his rhythm coming off the bench in eight straight games during the middle of Big 12 play. During that stretch, he averaged 8.8 points per game while hitting 43.9 percent (25-of-57) from the field, including 34.6 percent (9-of-26) from long range. Four of his five double-figure scoring contests came in that frame, the first times he reached double figures against a league opponent in his career.

Henry's offensive contributions were significant, especially on the road. He helped NU to a pair of road wins in league play, hitting 4-of-7 3-point attempts while scoring 14 points in a win at Missouri and knocking down a pair of late 3-pointers in a victory at nationally ranked Texas A&M.

Henry found better success against Big 12 opponents in his second year in league play. He hit 40.0 percent (38-of-95) from the field as a sophomore and added 6.8 points and 2.9 rebounds per game, nearly doubling his efforts in each category from his freshman campaign.

Off the court, Henry was named to the Big 12 Commissioner's Fall Honor Roll for his work in the classroom.

2006-07 (Freshman)
The first player to sign with Coach Doc Sadler at Nebraska (August 2006), Henry was one of only two players to see action in every contest in 2006-07. Henry started 15 of the first 16 games and made 18 starts overall while averaging 5.8 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game.

An athletic left-hander, Henry's strongest play was in non-conference action before the grind of the Big 12 season began. Despite the slowdown in production, Henry proved he can create offense and get to the basket as he was third on the team in free throw attempts, while connecting at a 60-percent clip and was second among freshmen scorers for the Huskers.

Henry started his career with a bang, hitting all three attempts from the floor for eight points to go with four assists without a turnover in Nebraska's season opener. He followed with at least five assists in two of the next three contests while helping the Huskers to a five-game winning streak to open the season. Overall, Henry had at least four assists in a game six times to finish third on the squad with 52 assists on the year.

By posting 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting against Alabama A&M, Henry started his hottest streak of the season as he scored in double figures in four of the final seven non-conference games, and had at least eight points in two others. Henry scored 10 points in a comeback attempt against Hawaii in the second game of the Rainbow Classic before posting a career-high 20 points in the third-place contest against Houston.

The Cougars jumped out to a 10-point lead in the first half, but the Huskers whittled away at the lead as they held UH to one field goal in the first 16:08 of the second half before eventually claiming a 70-57 victory. Henry's 20 points came on 8-of-15 shooting and he added five rebounds and two steals.

Henry had his most accurate game against Savannah State as he was 7-of-7 from the field, including draining both 3-point attempts, along with knocking down two free throws and adding five assists without a turnover.

Henry played the 2005-06 season at the Patterson School in North Carolina, where he helped the team to a 37-3 record under Coach Chris Chaney.

Dave Telep of Scout.com ranked Henry No. 24 nationally among postgraduate players that season. The lefty averaged 14 points and four assists per game, including a season-high 51 points in a contest.

Henry joined the Patterson School after playing ball at Lynwood High School, where he was a Best in the West selection and averaged 24 points, six assists and five rebounds per game as a senior while earning All-California Interscholastic Federation honors. Henry's impressive senior season earned him honors as he was selected as one of 100 finalists for McDonald's All-America honors in 2005. The original list included more than 2,500 nominations. He was also ranked No. 3 among shooting guards from the West Coast by scouthoops.com, No. 77 nationally by hoopmasters.com and took the No. 100 position in the nation by Hoop Scoop. As a junior, he averaged 20.0 points, 5.0 assists and 2.0 rebounds per game.

During AAU competition, Henry played for the highly touted Belmont Shores in the summer when he was named to the 2006 Top 30 All-Stars at the Fullcourt Press All-West Camp. He was labeled "a highly potent offensive weapon" at the camp. Henry also played for the H-Squad under coach Rick Issac and led the team to the 2006 Rumble in the Bronx title when he scored 23 points in the championship game, including seven 3-pointers, the last of which came in the final seconds of the game. Following his senior season he averaged 20.8 points per game for the H-Squad while helping the team to the finals of the 2005 Tournament of Champions.
