  6. Jess Shepard

    Notre Dame thinking about applying for a hardship waiver for Shepard? http://www.ndinsider.com/basketball/womens/notebook-ogunbowale-continues-to-set-the-gold-standard-for-notre/article_d71b471c-7951-11e7-8a05-73bf252335ee.html To be blunt, here's hoping the NCAA doesn't grant her the waiver should Notre Dame apply for it, for the crap she pulled on her teammates the past two years!!!

    Jordan Hooper was traded to the Chicago Sky yesterday. http://sky.wnba.com/news/chicago-sky-acquire-hooper-first-round-draft-pick/ Also, Husker alum Kelsey Griffin was named MVP of FIBA Asia Cup. She led Australia to a second place finish. You can read more about her feats in the tournament on articles written by Jeff Griesch at huskers.com.
  8. The top-ranked high school recruit in the state of Nebraska, Taylor Kissinger signed her National Letter of Intent to join the Nebraska women’s basketball team for the 2017-18 season on the first day of the fall signing period today! http://www.huskers.com/ViewArticle.dbml?SPSID=29&SPID=25&DB_LANG=C&ATCLID=211284393&DB_OEM_ID=100

  10. Just heard that Lincoln Northeast sophomore McKenna Minter picked up her first offer this week .....Creighton.
  11. 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. http://www.espn.com/high-school/girls-basketball/recruiting/player/_/id/216517 Nothing officially announced yet, but stay tuned, something could be released at any time. Keep your fingers crossed that this comes to fruition and soon.
  12. Non Conference record

    Anyone else?!.........just kidding! Thanks for the kind remarks above guys they're appreciated. I actually think we have one of the top collegiate wbb message boards out there. There are some teams with none even in the B1G. I love to read what HB or Hud or Norm Petersen or anyone else who writes here, whether you agree or disagree, whether they have 2 posts or 15,000 posts to this forum, in my opinion everyone who contributes to our corner of the cyber-world make this place great.
  13. Non Conference record

    Back when Dollar Bill Byrne let Paul Sanderford go back in 2002, word being spread around that the new coach would be one with a proven track record or a well-qualified assistant. Word going around in different circles was that Nebraska was looking at Southwest Missouri St’s Cheryl Burnett, Tennessee assistant now head coach Holly Warlock who at one time was an assistant here at Nebraska, and Theresa Becker who had been the head coach at Iowa St and a former NU assistant under Angela Beck. Imagine my surprise when he announced the new coach as Connie Yori. I’ll be honest and say I absolutely hated that hire and didn’t expect much. She started her career at NU with an 8-20 record. If I remember right there were like 200 season ticket holders at the time and she always referred to us as her core group of fans from the get go which filled me with a sense of pride as she progressed the program to where she took it. Needless to say, I eventually forgave “Dollar Bill” for the hire. I was skeptical as to how her second year here would pan out just like fans are right now with Coach Williams. Coach Yori’s second year produced an 18-12 record and a berth in the WNIT tournament, she eventually turned that into the undefeated regular season in 2010 in which a lot of today’s fans jumped on the band wagon. Which was fine by me on both accounts. There honesty isn’t a week that goes by now that someone doesn’t ask me how this new coach will do in her second season. And comparing her to what Coach Yori did I don’t think is fair. I usually tell them we need to give her time. Now, I’m not saying Coach Williams needs to equal what Coach Yori did or do better and I’m not ready and probably won’t be for a while to make a win-loss prediction. But as I look at the somewhat easy non-conference schedule and what I think will be a down year in the B1G I at least see her going 500 or better her second year. That all depends on one thing though, we must keep Rachel Blackburn healthy all season. She is the backbone and leader of this team and it does no good with her riding bench. She in my belief is the key to making this upcoming season a success.
  14. This kid is going to be good!

  16. Particial non con schedule released

    The non conference schedule is now complete as the Washington St. Cougars were added this morning to complete the non-con slate. The B1G schedule will be announced from the conference at a later date.
  17. Kate Cain

    No we're not getting another recruit just yet anyway. The coaches are starting to evaluate the 2019 class. The AAU circuit began last week and the coaches are scattered all across the nation watching for that next Husker. Saying "who's next" is their way of putting the 2019 class on alert that they'll be on the lookout nationwide for that next big commit.
  18. Particial non con schedule released

    Opponents and tip times for the San Juan Shootout were announced this morning, Buffalo and Coastal Carolina are the Husker future foes.
  19. Particial non con schedule released

    Creighton has now been added to the non-conference schedule, Sunday, November 19th.
  20. 59 Nebraska student-athletes were named Big Ten Distinguished Scholars when the conference announced its highest scholastic honor team across all sports yesterday. To no ones surprise here Emily Wood was named as one of them representing the Husker women's basketball team! http://www.huskers.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=100&ATCLID=211636392 Way-To-Go, Emily!
  21. No surprise here

    I failed to mention that isn't the only honor she was awarded with this spring. Emily also earned the Big Ten Outstanding Sportsmanship Award across all the Husker women's sports in 2016-17. She was named one of Nebraska's Outstanding Scholar Award winners across all sports for her performance in the classroom. She is expected to be a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar for the second consecutive year in 2017, and is a two-time academic All-Big Ten choice.
  22. Particial non con schedule released

    Previously we've typically played two exhibition games but last year we only had one. That could be because we played in the early pre-season WNIT too. Not sure if another one will be scheduled or not, could be that the new coaching staff would rather play one than two. I'm guessing just one this year also.
  23. From what little we have to go on and a few questions left to be answered, here's how I see the starting line up to unfold next November and why. G - Hannah Whitish 5'9 - sophomore to be, her ability to knock down the outside shot got better each game she played and her defense progressed as she became more comfortable on the court. Earned the starting role as the season progressed because of this. As she gets more comfortable in the system her defense and offensive out put should increase even more dramatically. One year in this system and the off season will help her immensely in all facets. G - Janay Morton 5'10 - red-shirt senior next season, has one key factor over the rest of the team that being experience. The kid has one year to learn the system by sitting on the sidelines and if you don't think that learning experience doesn't help just ask Kelsey Griffin. In each of her three seasons at Eastern Michigan Janay averaged 12.5 points or better hitting 38% from behind the arc plus she earned a spot on the MAC all defensive team her junior season. C - Rachel Blackburn 6'3 - red-shirt sophomore coming off a couple of surgeries. Extremely motivated to get back on the court. Should fit right in to the new system. Huskers can't afford to not have her on the court because of her height and the attitude she brings. Hopefully she can become more consistent on her jump shot from within15 feet. One draw back if she can get it under control, is staying out of foul trouble. Her intense play caused her a lot of unnecessary fouls her freshmen year. G/F - Nicea Eliely 6'1 - sophomore next season, proved last season without a doubt she needs to be on the court with her ability to excel in all facets of the game. Brings an up-tempo energy to the game for all 40 minutes. Should be able get more consistent with her jumper through out the off season. PG - Bria Stallworth 5'6 - sophomore next year, averaged 13 points as a freshman at UMass and 4 assists. Sat out learning the system last year. Anxious to get out on the court. Has the ability to drive the lane and dish ala Lindsey Moore. First few off the bench: sr-Jasmine Cincore, jr-Maddie Simon, fr-Taylor Kissinger I've got a pretty young line up with 4 sophomore's and a senior in penciled into the starting line up, that's how I see it now, Now my predictions could change should the Huskers sign a pretty good transfer this summer though. How do you guy's and gal's see it shaping up? Do you agree or not, don't be shy let the rest of us know.
  24. Particial non con schedule released

    Southern Illinois and UMKC have also been added to the slate.
  25. Maybe I missed it being discussed

    Yes, it occurs but not as much as in the NBA. Three years ago Minnesota's Amanda Zahui B left after her junior season and the following year Michigan State's Aerial Powers declared early for the draft. Others have declared early from other conferences but those are two recent examples of players from the B1G. If I remember correctly Britany Griner was one of the first underclassmen to declare early.
