    People around me were going "who the heck is Jessica Shepard?" As one of the few people in the world whose two favorite schools are Nebraska and Notre Dame, I was able to fill them in.

    She scored 7 points in 15 minutes. Didn't even know she was going to play until a few hours beforehand.

    "The presence of Shepard, a two-time All-Big Ten forward, is a potentially immeasurable win for the Irish, given that All-America post player Brianna Turner is out for the season while she recovers from a knee injury, and that fellow returning starting forward Kathryn Westbeld remains out indefinitely after April ankle surgery."

    anyone know the reasoning why she was declared eligible without having to sit out a year?

    Ruling is a joke. No way to respect the NCAA after this

    NCAA has been a joke for several years, they lost respect long time back.

    When Yori was fired the offer to be released from their schollie was given to all the players. Jess stayed for a year then decided to transfer. When she left she applied for a waiver to play immediately and was denied. She went through the appeals process was denied twice and then on the third and final appeal she was granted immediate eligibility.
