Trevor Menke provided the Huskers with a solid reserve at the point guard spot, appearing in 14 games and totaling four points and five assists. Menke was a solid ball-handler, commiting one turnover in 64 minutes of action. Menke saw a majority of his action early in the season, backing up freshman Benny Parker and seeing action in six of NU's first eighr contests. His most extensive playing time came against Southern on Nov. 11, and Nebraska-Omaha on Nov. 18, when he played a career-high 16 minutes in both games. Against UNO, he dished out three assists and had a steal in NU's 75-62 win. He also turned in a solid effort against Valparaiso, grabbing two rebounds in seven minutes of work.
In Big Ten action, his time decreased, as the Huskers moved senior Dylan Talley to the point guard spot, but he still played in eight contests. He scored his first career point against Illinois on Jan. 22, hitting 1-of-2 from the foul line in three minutes. His most extensive action came against Northwestern on Jan. 26, as he played five minutes to help handle the Wildcats' 1-3-1 zone, dishing out a pair of assists in NU's 64-49 win. Menke also played three minutes at top-ranked Indiana on Feb. 13, and No. 17 Wisconsin on Feb. 26, before hitting his first career shot, a 3-pointer in the final minute, at Iowa on March 9. He also played the final minute of NU's Big Ten quarterfinal against No. 10 Ohio State on March 15.
2011-12 (Redshirt Freshman)
Menke saw limited duty, playing in three games during the 2011-12 season as a backup point guard. The walk-on earned an opportunity with his work in practice running the scout team, as he was forced into duty following a rash of injuries. He was one of two former Beatrice players to play for the Huskers in 2011-12, joining forward Mike Fox.
Menke made his Husker debut against Alcorn State on Dec. 17, playing four minutes against the Braves as the Huskers were without three players because of injuries. He got another opportunity against Central Michigan, as he played two minutes in the first half backing up Brandon Richardson and Bo Spencer. After not playing during Big Ten action, he saw time in the Huskers' Big Ten Tournament loss to Purdue on March 8, playing the final minute of the loss to the Boilermakers.
Menke redshirted as a freshman. He missed the second half of the season with a broken foot suffered in practice in late December.
Menke was one of the state's top point guards playing for Beatrice High School and legendary Coach Jim Weeks. Menke was a four-year starter, helping Beatrice to a Class B state title in 2008, two runner-up finishes (2007 and 2009) and a third-place showing as a senior.
In 2009-10, Menke earned first-team Class B and third-team All-Nebraska (all-class) honors, averaging 14.2 points, 5.1 assists and 2.3 rebounds a game. That followed on the heels of a junior campaign where he averaged 14.2 points and 5.0 assists per game while hitting 44 percent from 3-point range to earn first-team all-state accolades for the first time in his career.
Menke showed a knack for clutch performances throughout his high school career, hitting game-winning buzzer beaters in the state tournament in both his junior and senior years, including a 28-footer in the first round of the 2010 state tournament. As a freshman, he scored 18 points in a loss to Omaha Skutt at the Devaney Center.
A four-year letterwinner in basketball, Menke also lettered four years in track and three in cross country at Beatrice. He was a member of the National Honor Society, a member of the honor roll throughout his career and served as vice president of the student council.
Trevor is the son of Steven and Wendy Menke and was born on July 1, 1991. He has one older brother, Brent, who served as a team manager for the Husker program and is now an assistant coach at Doane College. Trevor is a social science education major at Nebraska.
