A glimpse into the early years of Hannah Whitish

UNL freshman basketball player’s talent stems from father’s support


 

Quote

 

Whitish is known for being a tireless worker, spending hours perfecting her jump shots. As a 10 year old, Whitish’s dad Bob recognized his daughter’s commitment to basketball and gave her private workspace.

 

“My dad actually built a shed,” Whitish said. “The original plan was to have over half of it as the half court.”

I don't see her having a sophomore slump.  She has a big upside and will continue to improve each year.  The 3 point shot is becoming more important all the time for both WBB and MBB.

So the practice shed for players on the team will be two next year.  It is well known that Taylor Kissinger's father built a full size court inside of a building on the farm for the girls. All I ever got was a hoop on the garage.  Maybe that was why I was never very good.

When I started BBall in elementary school....In the summer I had to walk up to school and play on an outdoor hoop, on a  parking lot. Me and a couple other neighborhood kids played for hours...for fun.
