Nebraska only lost center Kate Cain from last season. Cain was the school’s career-leading shot blocker, so NU won’t have the benefit of her ability to stop plays at the rim. Williams said Nebraska’s defense will be more aggressive on the perimeter and go for more steals. Williams may also have some posts fronting opposing centers.
NU’s five-player freshman class is full of personality, Williams said, particularly Lincoln Pius X graduate Alexis Markowski, who told Williams “15 times” in a preseason meeting that she just wants to win
Guard Nailah Dillard tore her ACL and will miss the season. She missed all of last season after undergoing hip surgery.
Nebraska will redshirt 6-foot-5 center Tatiana Popa as well.
