    2018-2019 Roster

    I don't worry so much about the total scholarship numbers going forward unless we would be at 10 or less. What enthuses me is Coach Williams has obviously a good plan on rebuilding the program and is ahead of schedule in my mind. I'm excited about the classes she is putting together and really like what she has going for 2019. Isabelle Bourne. What a name and what an athlete.

    2018-2019 Roster

    The complete roster is now shown on Huskers.com WBB with 13 players.

    2018-2019 Roster

    That's what they did last year as well. Just the new recruits shown for about a week and then the full roster for this fall.

    2018-2019 Roster

    That's where Kate's length and height comes in to help patrol the middle. Can't wait to see how much she improves this year.

    2018-2019 Roster

    Amy seems to recruit length as a big plus as well. I like it. Provides some potential mismatches for opponents trying to defense us.
  7. I can see us possibly picking up one more player for this year. That would leave 4 open scholarships for 2019 with Maddie graduating. That's assuming Darrien is not going to stick around. We have one commit already and I could see one or two more being recruited. I just don't see us having a full 15 player roster. 12 or 13 seems to work.

    Transfers

    With a couple weeks remaining in the academic semester, Williams said she doesn’t expect any players to transfer to other schools. A few are examining their options from a “health or academics” perspective, though, including forward Rachel Blackburn, who continues to battle chronic knee pain. Blackburn averaged 1.5 points and 1.9 rebounds last season in 29 games off the bench. This was Amy's latest thoughts on players that may leave. It is on the Media post on April 18th where she said Bill Moos and her were on the same wavelength. First time I heard the "academics" used.

    Excuse me all to hell. Just trying to share.

    The Media Thread

    http://www.omaha.com/huskers/plus/nebraska-women-s-basketball-coach-amy-williams-a-d-bill/article_32197005-32e5-5dcb-973f-741dc730ff2b.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=email&utm_campaign=user-share LINCOLN — Nebraska women’s basketball coach Amy Williams and Athletic Director Bill Moos are in sync on the program’s future, Williams said in a recent interview. Williams met with Moos April 9 for a sitdown following the Huskers’ surprising turnaround season that resulted in a NCAA tournament bid. An extension on Williams’ contract — which currently runs through the 2022 season — and extensions on her assistants’ contracts (which run through 2019) should come at a later date. “We’re completely on the same page with the way things should work and the way things are working,” Williams said last week. “He’s genuinely as excited as we are about the direction of our program. All of those things make me feel awesome.” After a 7-22 season in Williams’ first year, the Huskers finished 21-11 overall and 11-5 in the Big Ten. Nebraska swept rival Iowa. Williams won Big Ten coach of the year as the team earned a No. 10 seed in the NCAA tournament. The 73-62 loss to Arizona State — in which Nebraska was badly outrebounded — still stings Williams and the team. “They got a taste of the NCAA tournament, but they’re not satisfied with that,” Williams said. “It created more of a hunger. That was a fun ride, and we enjoyed being there, but now that we got a taste of that, we want more. It’s incredible how that works. We feel like we could have put a better performance together in that game.” With a couple weeks remaining in the academic semester, Williams said she doesn’t expect any players to transfer to other schools. A few are examining their options from a “health or academics” perspective, though, including forward Rachel Blackburn, who continues to battle chronic knee pain. Blackburn averaged 1.5 points and 1.9 rebounds last season in 29 games off the bench. “There’s just some question marks in the evaluation there that her family will go through,” Williams said. “We’re just going to support her no matter what.” Notes » Nebraska would consider adding another signee to the 2018 class if it finds “the right fit,” Williams said. NU is thin in the post, especially if Blackburn chooses to retire. » Women’s basketball coaches have one more evaluation period this weekend. NU will also host a 2019 prospect, so Williams plans to split her staff to accommodate both tasks. The next evaluation periods aren’t until July 6-12 and July 23-29, after which teams usually schedule official visits during football games in preparation for the fall signing period. » Incoming freshmen Leigha Brown, Sam Haiby, Kayla Mershon and Ashtyn Vanderbeek are set to arrive the first weekend in June in time for summer classes.

    Season ending Banquet

    The ten remaining players will all be able to contribute and would probably be enough players but only if we stay healthy. When was the last time that happened. We probably need another guard with experience even if only for one year.

    Season ending Banquet

    So I take it that here will be some announcements made in the near future.

    Leigha Brown is 'N'

    Can't wait to have her here hopefully at the beginning of summer. With 3 guards graduating there are lots of opportunities there.
  14. Allie and Esther seemed to be very close friends. Could have been some influence from one to another there.
  15. I also think she was spoiled a bit and needed to do some growing up which had to happen if she was going to play at ND. It obviously did happen. And yes ND owes coach Williams a big one.

    Bye bye UConn

    It was a tough time for Kia Nurse to have an off night. She had the open shots but they didn't go in.
  17. The stats for our 5 posts/forwards were in total 4 points, 8 rebounds and 9 fouls. Not going to win many games against decent competition with that stat line. When Maddie doesn't show up and we don't have the quality backup that we need it forces Jasmine to have to play the power forward which hurts for obvious reasons. Next year that will change. You need an active and consistent power forward to help keep pressure off of our posts. I'm sure Kate has learned a lot this year and will take a step up next year also.

    Non-con schedule next year

    I think having Creighton every year would be good. Kind of a rivalry game. K state would be good as well since we seem to recruit Kansas relatively hard. We will still have the ACC challenge game which hopefully will give us a better team to play then Clemson. Northern Colorado would be another good one. As for the freshmen I think they will hit the ground running. Especially A. Veerbeek. I think she will contribute early. She is tough as nails. When you are a 4 star ESPN recruit rated at 95 you are expected to get a fast start. We will need for at least one of the guard recruits to play a lot early since we are graduating 3 at that position.

    Non-con schedule next year

    Buffalo, Drake and Creighton were OK this year but the trouble was we only beat one of them. I would like Oklahoma on the schedule which should make Bugeaters and Cazzie happy especially if it was a home game for us.

    Coach firings

    They did beat Rutgers when Rutgers was playing well. Wash. St. went to hell when their conference season started.
  21. Not really. I saw her in person a year ago.
  22. When you are in the process of restoring a team to prominence you need measuring sticks along the way. We had several of them already this year. We now have an opportunity for another one or two before the off season.

    WNIT vs. The Dance

    WNIT vs. The Dance

    Our metrics are much better then the mens. Even though the WBB committee doesn't yet use the quadrant system like the mens it still shows the difference between our men and women. 1 quad one win for the men and 7 for the women. Our 8-2 road record is better then most teams except for the top 5 rated teams. That also has to account for something. I think we are in and higher then originally thought. I may be setting myself up for a huge disappointment tomorrow but I don't think so.

    WNIT vs. The Dance

    Hopefully it means we are a higher seed then the last four in. I say that since we aren't even in the list above and are definitely better then two thirds of them.
