"Huskers Together" - Good Biographical Updates on:

Taylor Kissinger, Sam Haiby, Kate Cain, Issie Bourne, Trinity Brady, Makenzie Helms, Annika Stewart, Mi'Cole Cayton & Ashley Scoggin


Media presentation that loads at the link. (As new players are added they are placed at the bottom of the linked media so you must scroll down to the bottom of the media to see the new bios.)

Can't believe I'm saying this but I am getting excited for next season! (I'm drinking the :Koolaid2:! It could be a pretty good vintage this year! But not as good as the Men's. Maybe David could bottle & sell it. :Lol:)



Good Run-down on Kate Cain

There is so much I can do to elevate my game to an All-Big Ten level, and I'm going to work my hardest to reach that goal. I think in general, I need to be more consistent with my scoring. I'd have games where I'd be a scoring threat and others where I wouldn't score at all, so I need to work on my consistency. I need to make sure I'm staying in the weight room so I can get stronger down low. I also need to develop more post moves going toward the basket, so I can draw more fouls and get closer shots. There are so many things I need to work on, but I think those are very important."
"We have a lot of new faces coming in this year, and I'm very excited to see how all of these pieces come together. We have a lot of players who want to win and play together as a unit, and with so many weapons it's exciting to see what the future will hold.
One of my memories of Kate Cain is when she was knocked to the floor during a game (Soph season, I think) and got up Laughing! :Lol:

Makenzie Helms Overview now added (at the bottom of the media at the above link)

“I moved into my new house in Lincoln on May 8th and have been in Lincoln since, starting my pre-session class,” Helms said as the Huskers prepared for voluntary on-campus workouts to begin on June 1.
Helms continued to gain strength and make adjustments to the college game without seeing much time in the first half of the season. But as the pain subsided, her legs gained strength and her fitness level and speed improved, and Helms began to earn more playing time.
“On the court, I got a sneak peek of what it really is like versus Big Ten competition and that calls for a quicker shot release, tighter handles and crisp passes” Helms said. “My focus during this offseason is getting my ball-handling tight and effective, while also becoming more consistent with my three-point shot.

Annika Stewart Overview now added (at the bottom of the media at the above link)

Freshman Annika Stewart brings an extensive basketball family background to her first season as a Husker. The first commitment in Nebraska’s seven-player group of newcomers for the 2020-21 season, Stewart made her intentions known in July of 2019.
Her first two seasons in Minnesota helped prepare her for a huge end to her senior season in 2019-20. Stewart averaged 20.0 points, 8.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists while hitting 65.5 percent of her two-point field goal attempts and 41.5 percent (39-94) of her threes. She was also nearly a 90 percent free throw shooter (51-57). She led Wayzata to a 24-5 record
Midway through her senior season, Stewart and the Trojans were challenged by the loss of their team’s leading scorer to an ACL injury. Stewart stepped up in a big way, averaging 25 points per contest over that 12-game span. Stewart’s response to the loss of her injured teammate helped her realize another level in her own game.
