Lol...forgot we have a new coach! Not the time of year I typically think about basketball...Go Huskers!
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 on Wednesday, Nov. 9.
Kissinger is the only prep player from the state of Nebraska ranked among the nation’s top 100 recruits in the 2017 signing class.
Kissinger said she chose Nebraska because of her familiarity with the program.
“The more I got to know Coach Williams and her staff, the more comfortable I got, and I just really like the staff,” Kissinger said. “When I was a little kid I always thought about playing for the Huskers, so I want to make my dreams come true.”
The Minden Whippets finished with a 20-8 record this season even though their best player, Taylor Kissinger, missed 14 games due to injury.
When the 6-foot, 1-inch, senior was on the floor, the team went 10-1 During that stretch, Minden scored 60.0 points per game and gave up only 29.7 per game. In five of those victories, Kissinger’s final point tally either tied or beat the opposing team’s.
Without the five-star rated University of Nebraska signee and ESPN’s 12th-ranked guard in the country, the Whippets went 7-7, scoring 41.5 per game and giving up 36.1 to the competition.
“It’s not only her ability. She made everybody else on our team better,” said head coach Rick Chramosta

“She hit about five 3s in a row in a 2-minute span, and for the people there that watched that, it put them in awe,” he said. “I don’t know if it put me in awe because I’ve seen it a thousand times in practice.”
