  1. Default Nebraska 2017-18

    Huskers land Cain.

    The Nebraska women's basketball team nabbed a late signee for the 2017 recruiting class who could give the Huskers immediate help in the frontcourt.

    Kate Cain, a 6-foot-5 forward from Pine Bush, N.Y., announced on her Instagram account that she'd committed to Nebraska. Cain asked for and received her release from Delaware recently after the Blue Hens' coach announced her retirement in April.

    Cain, a four-star prospect, was the nation's No. 82 recruit according to ESPN, and averaged 25 points, 22 rebounds and eight blocks per game for Pine Bush High School, located 90 miles north of New York City. Her parents played college basketball, and she fielded top Division I offer, but initially chose Delaware.

    Omaha World-Herald recaps Amy Williams presser:

    Better guard depth should help, too. Women’s basketball is a guard’s game and the Huskers had few experienced options last season, especially players who could get to the rim and protect the ball. NU committed an average of 17.5 turnovers per game last season.

    Now Nebraska has seven guards and two more players — Taylor Kissinger and Grace Mitchell — who can play guard if necessary. NU added transfers Bria Stallworth (Massachusetts) and Janay Morton (Eastern Michigan) — both sat out last season per NCAA guidelines — and five-star recruit Kissinger, who scored 1,751 points in her career at Minden High School.

    Stallworth averaged 13 points and 3.8 assists per game for UMass as a freshman, transferring after the school fired its coach. As for Kissinger, Williams said she has stunned the Huskers’ scout teamers with her 3-point shooting skills...

    ...Nebraska’s frontcourt is a much bigger question. Without Shepard — or center Allie Havers, who used up her basketball eligibility — NU is left with freshman Kate Cain, junior Darrien Washington and sophomore Rachel Blackburn, who missed all of last season recovering from knee surgery. Williams and Blackburn’s teammates said last season Blackburn’s presence could have been worth a few more wins.

    In her Nebraska bio, it said Minnesota was in the mix for Cain after she bailed on Delaware.

    Cain was released from her NLI after a coaching change at Delaware during the offseason. She chose Nebraska over Virginia, Minnesota and Dayton. She will have four years of eligibility at Nebraska beginning immediately in the 2017-18 season.
