Johannes Herber (born January 17, 1983 in Darmstadt, (West) Germany) is a basketball player who plays for ALBA Berlin in the German Basketball Bundesliga. In 2006, he completed a U.S. college career at West Virginia University. In America, he was generally known as Joe Herber.

College career

After being developed by the Langen club in Germany, he received several professional offers in Europe, but turned them down in favor of a U.S. college career. The 6'6", 200 lb (1.98 m, 91 kg) all-around guard became the second recruit of new West Virginia coach John Beilein in 2002. Herber went on to start every game of his four-year WVU career, setting school records for most games started and minutes played. He also finished his college career as WVU's fifth-leading assist man. Herber, alongside with Kevin Pittsnogle and Mike Gansey, was a key player on the Mountaineers' NCAA regional finalists in 2005 and highly-ranked 2006 team. Herber also had an outstanding academic record at WVU, graduating with a 4.0 GPA in political science and gaining entry to the Order of Augusta, WVU's highest undergraduate honor.[1] He was named three times by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) as an Academic All-American.

German national team

During his time at WVU, he spent his summers with the German junior national team, competing in the 2005 World University Games. He was also a member of the German senior national squad for the 2006 World Championship. Herber played in seven games as Germany advanced to the quarter-finals before losing to Team USA. He averaged 4.3 points per game in the tournament.
