Saturday brought the 2020-2021 Nebraska High School Basketball season to a close as champions were crowned in all six of the classes in Nebraska. After an excellent week of action on the court in the capital, Saturday’s championship action was a fitting conclusion to an excellent winter on the hardwood here in the Cornhusker State. Here are some players whose performances on Championship Saturday stood out. 

Jacob Sjuts Jacob Sjuts 6'5" | SF Humphrey | 2022 State NE - 6’5 Junior (Humphrey/Lindsey Holy Family) 

A double-double in a state championship-winning performance would be special, but how about a 20/20 game with a state title on the line. HLHF junior forward Jacob Sjuts Jacob Sjuts 6'5" | SF Humphrey | 2022 State NE did just that in the first game of the day on Saturday notching 24 points and 20 rebounds in the Bulldogs’ Class D1 state championship victory over Howells-Dodge. It was an efficient performance scoring as well for the 6’5 junior who finished 8-13 from the field and 8-9 from the free throw line. 7 of his 20 rebounds were on the offensive end. Sjuts is incredibly strong around the basket both finishing and especially in rebounding. Throughout the week he displayed some mid-range game as well as some crafty finishing moves at the rim.
