Former Nebraska Gatorade player of the year Teddy Allen will play his sophomore season at Western Nebraska Community College.

“I am happy to join Western Nebraska and the tradition of the basketball program,” Allen said in a press release Thursday. “I am ready to get on the floor, work my butt off, and compete with my teammates.”

Allen averaged 31.6 points per game as a senior at Boys Town and was named to the All-Nebraska team in 2017. He spent the first two years of his college career at the Division I level.

Allen signed with West Virginia out of high school and played in 35 games as a freshman in 2017-18, averaging seven points and 2.7 rebounds per game.

The 6-foot-5 forward then transferred to Wichita State, where he sat out last season. Allen was dismissed from the school in June after he was arrested following a disturbance at a woman’s home.

The woman accused him of destroying her iPhone and stealing keys before fleeing on foot. He was later charged with domestic violence property crime and petty theft, both misdemeanors. He faces an arraignment Monday.​​
