Two-Sport Star Maggie Mendelson Enjoyed a Year to Remember


Mendelson’s tale of being a two-sport junior national team star, however, likely is not relatable to others in her home state of Utah — or anywhere else in the country for that matter.

Mendelson’s impressive year included medal-winning performances for the U.S. in both basketball and volleyball in a span of two months.

First, the 16-year-old helped USA Basketball win gold in August at the FIBA U16 Americas Championship in Léon, Mexico. Mendelson averaged 10.0 points and 6.7 rebounds in helping the U.S. win all six of its games at the event.

Then in September, Mendelson shined during the United States’ march to the bronze medal at the FIVB Volleyball U18 World Championship in Durango, Mexico. In the third-place match against Serbia, she scored 14 points on nine kills, three blocks and two aces.

Found this Elsewhere: :Redface:

During the recruiting process, the Nebraska coaches laid out the plan for Mendelson to play both sports in college — which was a must for her to consider a school in the recruiting process. She will focus on basketball in the summer, but once volleyball season starts in August, she will join the program and remain with them until the season is over in December before switching to the hardcourt.

No 2 nationally in volleyball, and No 32 in basketball (4 star) She could well make history ...hope so in basketball.

IIRC Lauren Ware (from No. Dakota and who we recruited) plays both sports at Arizona and seems to be doing just fine.

Good Article on Maggie Mendelson!!!


The 6-5 Mendelson is the only recruit in the country who is a member of the U.S. youth national teams in both volleyball and basketball. She will graduate a year early from Fremont High School in North Ogden, Utah, to join the Husker programs in 2022.

"I chose Nebraska because of the relationship I have built with the coaches," Mendelson said. "They believe I can play both sports, and I appreciate the tradition of those programs at Nebraska."
