Huskers Return Home to Take on No. 2 Iowa

The Nebraska women’s basketball team takes aim at a major upset when the Huskers play host to No. 2 Iowa on Super Bowl Sunday in Lincoln.
Tip-off between the Big Red (15-8, 7-5) and the Hawkeyes (22-2, 11-1 Big Ten) on Play4Kay Day (Pink Game) at Pinnacle Bank Arena is set for noon (CT) with live national TV coverage by FOX, with Jason Benetti, Kim Adams and Allison Williams (sideline) on the call.

While all eyes nationally will be on Iowa’s Caitlin Clark in her pursuit of the NCAA all-time points record, Nebraska will focus on getting its first win over an AP Top 25 team this season. Not only that, a win over the No. 2 Hawkeyes would match a 2005 victory over then-No. 2 and eventual national champion Baylor for the highest-ranked opponent the Huskers have ever defeated.
Nebraska returns to Lincoln after battling its way to a 65-59 win at Michigan on Tuesday. Alexis Markowski just missed a double-double with game highs of 18 points and nine rebounds, while Big Ten Freshman-of-the-Year contender Natalie Potts pitched in 12 points and three boards. Jaz Shelley put three Huskers in double figures with 10 points, six rebounds and four assists.
Alexis Markowski owns a Big Ten-best 13 double-doubles, including seven in league play. The 6-3 center from Lincoln ranks fourth on Nebraska’s career list with 34 - just two behind 1993 Wade Trophy winner Karen Jennings. Markowski ranks second in the Big Ten in rebounding (10.1 rpg) and sixth in scoring (16.5 ppg) A two-time Lisa Leslie Award candidate, Markowski has scored in double figures in all 23 games this season.
First-team All-Big Ten guard Jaz Shelley has added 12.2 points, 4.3 rebounds and team bests of 5.1 assists and 1.8 steals. She owns two double-doubles this season, including 13 points and 11 assists in a win over Maryland (Dec. 31). The 5-9 guard from Moe (pronounced MOE-ee), Australia, is the first Husker in history to record multiple career triple-doubles after getting 19 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists in a win over UNCW (Dec. 5). 
Five-time Big Ten Freshman-of-the-Week Natalie Potts has given the Big Red the biggest impact of any league freshman. The 6-2 forward from O’Fallon, Mo., is averaging 10.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.0 steal per game. Potts has produced double-figure points 14 times.

Scouting the No. 2 Iowa Hawkeyes
Coach Lisa Bluder brings No. 2 Iowa into Sunday’s game with a 22-2 overall record and an 11-1 Big Ten mark. The Hawkeyes are tied with No. 5 Ohio State atop the league standings, but the Buckeyes own a 100-92 win over Iowa (Jan. 21).
All-American Caitlin Clark headlines the Hawkeye starting five with a nation-leading 32.2 points, while also leading the nation with 8.2 assists. She owns 3,489 points and 995 career assists. She is 39 points from breaking Washington’s Kelsey Plum’s NCAA scoring record (3,527) set from 2013-14 to 2016-17. Clark needs just five assists to become the sixth player in NCAA history with 1,000 assists. Suzie McConnell (Penn State, 1985-88) owns the NCAA record with 1,307 assists.
Clark, who scored a season-high 45 points in the loss at Ohio State, has scored 20 or more points in all 24 games this season. She had 44 against Virginia Tech and 40 against Michigan State, and had scored at least 30 points in six straight games before finishing with 27 points and 15 assists in Thursday’s 111-93 win over Penn State in Iowa City. She had 38 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in Iowa’s 92-73 win over Nebraska in Iowa City (Jan. 27).
In eight career games against Nebraska, Clark has averaged 34.8 points (278), 9.0 rebounds (72) and 7.6 assists (61). She has scored at least 30 points in all eight meetings, including 41 in the 2022 Big Ten semifinals. She had 30 points and eight assists in Iowa’s 80-60 win at Nebraska last season (Feb. 18). Iowa is 8-0 with Clark in the lineup against Nebraska.
Graduate guard Kate Martin (12.7 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 2.5 apg) has stepped up her production in her fifth season. Martin recently joined Iowa’s 1,000-point club and has added more than 600 rebounds and 400 assists in her Hawkeye career. She is hitting a career-best 53.1 percent of her field goals this season, including 36.6 percent (26-71) of her threes and 89.2 percent (58-65) of her free throws. She has started 124 games in her career.
Fellow fifth-year guards Gabbie Marshall and Molly Davis give Iowa the Big Ten’s most experienced backcourt. Marshall averages just 5.3 points but supplies stellar defense on the perimeter. Despite averaging less than 7.0 points per game for all but one of her five seasons at Iowa (9.1 ppg, 2020-21), Marshall is just 16 points shy of reaching 1,000 in her career. She has started 122 games for Iowa. Davis has stepped into the starting lineup this season and is averaging 6.1 points, 2.8 rebounds and 3.4 assists. A three-year starter at Central Michigan before transferring to Iowa prior to 2022-23, Davis is shooting 53.9 percent from the field. 
Sophomore Hannah Stuelke, a 6-2 forward, has been Iowa’s most productive player in the post, averaging 14.4 points and 7.0 rebounds after a mammoth career-high 47-point performance in Iowa’s win over Penn State Thursday. Stuelke, who hit 17-of-20 shots from the field against Penn State, is shooting 63.8 percent from the field but just 60 percent from the free throw line. She was 13-of-21 at the line against the Lady Lions.
Sydney Affolter, a 5-11 junior, adds versatility off the bench with 7.4 points and 6.5 rebounds while 6-3 junior post players Sharon Goodman (5.8 ppg, 3.7 rpg) and Addison O’Grady (4.2 ppg, 2.0 rpg) provide Iowa size and depth inside. Taylor McCabe (3.4 ppg) and Kylie Feuerbach (2.5 ppg) round out the top 10 players in Iowa’s rotation.
Iowa possesses one of the most explosive offenses in the nation, averaging 92.7 points while shooting 50.7 percent from the field and 37.2 percent from three-point range. Iowa carries a plus-23.2 scoring margin, a plus-9.3 rebound margin and a plus-1.3 turnover margin. The Hawkeyes are averaging 94.5 points on 50.6 percent shooting in Big Ten play, including 39 percent from three-point range. They own a plus-6.7 rebound margin in league action.

Shelley, Markowski Named Preseason All-Big Ten
Jaz Shelley and Alexis Markowski captured preseason All-Big Ten honors from both coaches and media when the conference announced its honors on Oct. 4.
Nebraska joined Ohio State (Cotie McMahon, Jacy Sheldon) as the only schools in the conference to place two players on the Preseason All-Big Ten teams.
Shelley, a 2023 first-team All-Big Ten selection, averaged 14.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and a team-leading 6.2 assists while also ranking among Big Ten leaders with 79 three-pointers last season.
The 5-9 guard from Moe, Australia (pronounced MO-ee) was a second-team All-Big Ten choice in her first season with the Huskers in 2021-22. She was also a member of the media’s Big Ten All-Defensive Team, helping Nebraska to a 2022 NCAA Tournament berth. She was the only Big Ten player to rank among the top 20 in all five major statistical categories - scoring (13.1 ppg), rebounding (6.3 rpg), assists (5.0 apg), steals (1.8 spg) and blocked shots (0.9 bpg) in 2021-22.
Markowski claimed Preseason All-Big Ten honors for the second consecutive season. The two-time second-team All-Big Ten choice averaged 11.9 points and 9.8 rebounds per game as a sophomore for the Huskers in 2022-23. 
The 6-3 center led the Big Ten with 322 total rebounds and was the only conference player to average a double-double (12.4 ppg, 10.2 rpg) during regular-season Big Ten action a year ago. She also led all league post players with 15 double-doubles.
The 2022 Big Ten Freshman of the Year, Markowski averaged 12.8 points and 8.0 rebounds while becoming a starter during the conference season. She helped the Huskers to three wins over AP Top 10 teams and a trip to the Big Ten semifinals before advancing to the 2022 NCAA Tournament.
Shelley and Markowski were both among the preseason candidates for the 2024 Naismith and Wooden national player-of-the-year awards.
Markowski Climbing Husker Double-Double List
Nebraska’s Alexis Markowski is producing double-doubles at one of the top rates in the nation through 23 games in 2023-24. The 6-3 junior center from Lincoln, Neb., has recorded a Big Ten-leading 13 double-doubles on the year, including seven through the first 12 Big Ten Conference games for the Big Red.
Markowski, who earned her second appearance on the Lisa Leslie Award Watch List, ranks second in the Big Ten in rebounding at 10.1 boards per game, including 10.9 in conference play. She also ranks sixth in the league in scoring at 16.5 points per game.
With her next double-double, Markowski will move into a tie for fifth on Nebraska’s single-season double-double chart alongside Jordan Hooper (2012 & 2014) and Emily Cady (2014), who both notched 14 double-doubles. Last season, Markowski recorded 15 double-doubles in 33 games.
Markowski owns 34 career double-doubles, putting her just two behind 1993 Nebraska Wade Trophy winner Karen Jennings (36). First-team All-Americans Kelsey Griffin (2010) and Jordan Hooper (2014) share the Husker school record with 40 career double-doubles. Griffin owns the Nebraska single-season school record with 20 double-doubles in 2009-10.
Markowski has scored in double figures in all 23 games this season, including five 20-point performances.
The 2022 Big Ten Freshman of the Year, Markowski earned her second straight appearance on the Lisa Leslie Award Watch List this year. Last season, as the only sophomore on the list, she advanced to the Midseason Top 10 for the award.
Markowski ranks seventh on the Nebraska career rebound list with 819, after passing two-time WNBA All-Star Anna DeForge at No. 7 on the Nebraska career list with 804.
Potts Claims Five Big Ten Freshman Awards
Two-time Missouri MaxPreps High School Player of the Year Natalie Potts has made an instant impact on Nebraska’s lineup. The 6-2 forward from O’Fallon, Mo., claimed five of the first 12 Big Ten Freshman-of-the-Week awards with the most recent coming on Jan. 15.
In addition to her conference honors, Potts was named the No. 14 impact freshman in the nation by ESPN on Dec. 22. She ranks among the top Big Ten freshmen in scoring (10.4 ppg) and rebounding (5.4 rpg) while also leading the Huskers with 15 blocks through the first 23 games of her career. 
Potts leads Big Ten freshmen in rebounding (5.4 rpg), field goal percentage (.534) and free throw percentage (.846), while ranking second in scoring (10.4 ppg).
Potts produced her 14th double-figure scoring effort of the season with 12 points in a road win at Michigan (Feb. 6). She had 11 points, six rebounds and a career-high four steals in a win over Purdue (Jan. 31). In a head-to-head matchup with Purdue’s Mary Ashley Stevenson, the Boilermaker starting freshman managed just two points and one rebound before fouling out. Purdue’s other outstanding freshman, Rashunda Jones, managed four points and five rebounds, as Potts matched their rebounding production and nearly doubled their scoring production in approximately half their total minutes.
Potts produced her third career double-double with game highs of 13 points and 10 rebounds in a win over Michigan (Jan. 17). She ranks third among the Huskers in scoring (10.0 ppg) and second in rebounding (5.3 rpg) in league play. She also ranks second on the team with 1.2 steals in the Big Ten.

Potts won her second Big Ten Freshman award (Nov. 22) after averaging 14.0 points in two games at the St. Pete Showcase. She opened the week with a career-high 22 points on 9-of-10 shooting from the field, including a three-pointer, in a 75-61 win over Lamar.

Potts averaged 12.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.0 block to earn her first Big Ten Freshman-of-the-Week award (Nov. 13).
In Nebraska’s 71-52 road win at Wyoming, Potts was a catalyst at both ends of the court, erupting for 15 points on 6-of-7 shooting, while adding two steals and a blocked shot. Potts was a menace defensively, creating easy offensive opportunities with deflections at the front of Nebraska’s press to help turn an early Husker deficit into a double-digit road victory over the Cowgirls.
In her regular-season collegiate debut, Potts had 10 points, five rebounds, an assist, two steals and a block while hitting 5-of-7 shots from the field in a 90-42 win over Northwestern State (Nov. 6).

Nebraska has received an immediate boost in the backcourt from three-time first-team All-Big Sky guard Darian White.
Through the first 22 games, White averaged 8.5 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.3 assists, before missing Nebraska’s win at Michigan (Feb. 6) with a leg injury. She has produced double figures three times in her past five games with 14 points, four rebounds and four assists in a win over Purdue (Jan. 31). It was her eighth double-figure scoring effort of the season.

White had 11 points, four rebounds, six assists and two steals in 20 minutes in the win over UNCW (Dec. 5). 
She made her Big Ten debut with nine points, six rebounds, five assists and her first blocked shot of the season in an 80-74 win at NCAA NET No. 8 Michigan State (Dec. 9).

Husker Trio Earns Endowed Scholarships
Nebraska Athletics is announcing the recipients of three endowed scholarships for women’s basketball at three home games from Jan. 31 to Feb. 11 at Pinnacle Bank Arena.
The first scholarship announcement came on Wednesday, Jan. 31 when Nebraska defeated Purdue, as the Huskers presented the first Stephanie Bolli #34 Women’s Basketball Scholarship to sophomore guard Allison Weidner.
Bolli was a four-time women’s basketball letterwinner (1985-88) as a 5-10 forward from Burwell, Neb. She served as a senior captain on Nebraska’s 1988 Big Eight championship team that advanced to the school’s first NCAA Tournament. Bolli was also a two-time Academic All-American, including Nebraska’s first College Sports Communicators First-Team Academic All-American for women’s basketball in 1988. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Nebraska in 1989.
Preference for the awarding of the Stephanie Bolli #34 Women’s Basketball Scholarship is given to a graduate of a Nebraska high school outside the Lincoln and Omaha metro areas who displays a Nebraska work ethic, prioritizes team goals over personal goals, and meets or exceeds current Academic All-Big Ten standards/demonstrates a high level of academic achievement.
Another new endowed scholarship will be presented at Nebraska’s game with Iowa on Feb. 11, with the inaugural announcement of the Stone Family Women’s Basketball Scholarship. The scholarship, which is being presented by Joe and Chris Stone to Darian White, requires high character and values, along with grit and an outstanding work ethic.
The Huskers announced the winner of their first endowed scholarship for women’s basketball at the home game against Rutgers on Saturday, Feb. 3. The Latimer Family Women’s Basketball Scholarship was presented to Maddie Krull after generous donations from Gary and Janet Latimer. It was the third time the Latimer Family Women’s Basketball Scholarship has been awarded, after presenting its inaugural scholarship to Isabelle Bourne in 2021-22 and 2022-23.
