Omaha World Herald NU women's Basketball article

A Flavor of the Article:

McKewon: With Amy Williams in charge, Huskers women on the rise

She reminds me of Scott Frost.

 

They’re contemporaries, of course — both played at Nebraska in the mid-1990s, and Williams even quietly went to Frost’s opening press conference. Both embrace modern trends in the sport — Williams has a good eye on the Golden State Warriors’ style of play, while Frost’s spread option system remains on the cutting edge of college football. Both started their coaching careers on low rungs and rose quickly. Both cut their teeth as coaches at mid-major programs — Frost at Central Florida, Williams at South Dakota.

And both, in rare moves, chose to bring their entire coaching staffs from UCF and USD with them to Nebraska.

In truth I believe that we will have all the right pieces next year.  Like any puzzle it takes a bit of time to figure out how they fit.   Having something special in two years, I think he is right on the money.

Great Article Steve!

 

Quote

Hart comes from the University of South Florida, where he worked two years with the women’s basketball team and one year with the men’s team. Before that, he worked for seven years at NCAA Division II St. Leo, north of Tampa. He applied for Nebraska’s job in part because he’s long felt loyal to women’s basketball — it’s where he got his start as a coach — and in part because he wanted to get in on the ground floor of a new coaching staff. Williams is in her second year.

But Hart knew something else about Nebraska, too. Husker Power. Boyd Epley, Mike Arthur, all the pioneers in NU athletics. If you’re passionate about the field, and Hart is, you know Epley.

 

LOTS More in the article you'll want to know!   :nod:

Those hours spent with Hart don’t necessarily need to kick in during every game. But Nebraska is undefeated this season in true road games. And in the 74-65 win over Iowa, NU’s superior conditioning was the difference.

 

“This preseason and this summer was incredibly hard on all of us — mentally and physically,” Whitish said. “That’s why we’re here. We’re able to beat these teams that might be bigger than us or stronger than us.”
