Kate Cain

Sounds like the Huskers have received a verbal from 6-5 Kate Cain a 4 star post from Middletown, NY. Cain who will be a freshman this fall (should be eligible to play right away,) had originally signed with Delaware, but was granted her released after the Delaware head coach resigned last April. ESPN has her ranked as the 82nd best player in the 2017 class and 10th at her position.

Quote

Strong, physical low-post performer with effective post up game; footwork, imposing size finishes plays in the block; defends paint, alters shots, starts fast break; sleeper prospect and stock-riser in the class of 2017.

 

Quote

Deceptively agile low-post prospect catches, finishes, delivers in block vs. contact; defensive presence in key, shot blocker, rebounds, outlets and initiates fast break; agile in transition; emerging as an elite center prospect in the class of 2017.

From an article:

Leading the way for Hudson Valley this summer will be Kate Cain, a 6-5 post player who is currently listed as the No. 197 recruit in the Class of 2017 by the All Star Girls Report.

“Kate is a good back-to-the-basket post player, but she can also step all the way out to the three-point line,” Reilly said. “She has a good basketball pedigree — both her parents played college basketball. She runs the floor very well, she has good shooting range and a nice shooting touch. Kate made over 80 percent of her free throws for us last year.”

Delaware’s coaching change in women’s basketball has cost the Blue Hens a top recruit.

 

Kate Cain, the 6-foot-5 center from Pine Bush (N.Y.) High, has reopened her recruiting, said her high school coach Bill Lacovara.

She is now considering Nebraska, Indiana, Minnesota, Virginia, Dayton and Oklahoma, he said.

 

Cain, who signed with Delaware last fall, averaged 25 points, 22 rebounds and eight blocks per game as a senior this past season and was touted as the Colonial Athletic Association’s No. 1 recruit by All-Star Girls Report. Delaware released Cain from her National Letter of Intent.

 

Tina Martin retired as Delaware coach April 28 – she has since been hired as an assistant at CAA rival UNC-Wilmington – and former Georgetown coach Natasha Adair is the new Delaware coach. Adair was unavailable for comment Thursday.

Nice to see coach Williams score in recruiting a Big from as far away as New York.  I really like her defensive stat of 8 blocks per game as a junior and also a senior.

One of the top 100 players nationally in the 2017 high school senior class will join the Nebraska women's basketball program for the 2017-18 season, as Coach Amy Williams announced on Friday that 6-5 center Kate Cain will join the Husker program. 

Cain, who graduated from Pine Bush High School in New York, originally signed her National Letter of Intent with Delaware in November of 2016. Cain was released from her NLI after a coaching change at Delaware during the offseason. She chose Nebraska over Virginia, Minnesota and Dayton. She will have four years of eligibility at Nebraska beginning immediately in the 2017-18 season. As a senior, she was ranked as the No. 82 overall player in the nation by ESPN, which had her ranked as the No. 10 prep post player in the country. She originally chose Delaware over Syracuse, West Virginia and Seton Hall.

Williams said Cain will provide immediate help for the Huskers in the post, while bringing her work ethic and high character to the team.

"We're excited to have Kate join our program," Williams said. "She brings a strong back-to-the-basket post presence to our team and much-needed depth at that position. She's got great hands and a good presence around the rim. She is an excellent student, has great character and fits perfectly with the humble, hard-working culture we are establishing at Nebraska."

Cain was a finalist for Miss New York Basketball honors as a senior, when she averaged 25.2 points, 12.3 rebounds and 7.9 blocks per game for Coach Bill Lacouara at Pine Bush High School. She was a first-team USA Today All-New York selection in 2016-17. She averaged 24.3 points, 15.0 rebounds and 8.0 blocks per game as a junior. Cain, who hails from Middletown, N.Y., played her club basketball for Coach John Reilly and the Hudson Valley Elite AAU program. She also helped Pine Bush to the New York state volleyball finals.

Cain has a strong family background in basketball. Her father, Tim, graduated as the all-time leading scorer (1,872 points) in Manhattan College history. He was a two-time honorable-mention All-American by The Sporting News, averaging 17.3 points per game during his career for the Jaspers. Kate's mother, Alison (Martinsky) Cain, was also a 1,000-point career scorer as a collegian at Fairfield, finishing with 1,071 points. She also ranked 10th in Fairfield history with 734 career rebounds, while ranking second in Stags history with 268 blocks. Alison played professionally in Ireland. Kate's older brother, John, is a 6-10 starting left-handed pitcher for the Lafayette baseball team. She also has a younger brother, Chris.

Really really needed add at the post.  

 

But there's still lots of room on the roster. Kate rounds out the roster at 12...we can carry 15. Pretty late even to get Kate....doubt we'll find another this late.

 

Lose three this coming year....can take a big class next year. This team going to keep on changing.

Kate looks like an exceptional athlete/talent to add this late. Does anyone know how we got her to Nebraska?  Special contacts, help from long distance, or just extra hustle from the coaching staff. She obviously could see the opportunity etc., but from 1200 to 1500 miles away is interesting.

Thanking whoever has information in advance.

Just when we thought we may not be getting another post player for this fall our coach comes through with what appears to be a good one.  It is becoming obvious to me that the players Coach Williams is looking for and has added to our team to date are not just good players but must be able to add to the all important team chemistry that she is working hard to improve as evidenced by her recent quote on Kate Cain where she said "She is an excellent student, has great character and fits perfectly with the humble, hard-working culture we are establishing at Nebraska."  I think the key words are humble and hard-working.  There will be a lot of competition for playing time especially when the four verbal commits for 2018 come in.  We are and will continue to be a young team with lots of opportunities for players to take advantage of.  I personally like where we are at and am looking forward to following our team in the future.
