Welcome Bella Cravens, 6-3 Post, So. transfer fm Eastern Washington (the Third (Wo)Man).
Bella Cravens posted an announcement to Instagram that she was transferring from Eastern Washington and choosing to play her final two seasons of college basketball at a different school. By the next morning, when she woke up, 10 programs had already reached out.............But Nebraska — in need of post players after two transferred away in March — was at the front of the line. NU was the first school to contact her and the only school to talk to her every day for the first week of her recruiting process.
She might turn out to be one of the more important additions of any Big Ten team. She averaged 10.4 and 8.5 rebounds for EWU, which finished 4-26. Cravens accounted for a full quarter of her team’s rebounds and 17.7% of its scoring. Although the team’s best player, there was a limit to how much better Cravens could get in that program. Teams like Nebraska, Wisconsin, BYU and Boise State — some of Cravens’ finalists — immediately recognized that.
