Huskers Hit Road to Battle Boilers

The Nebraska women’s basketball team returns to Big Ten road action in search of its ninth league win when the Huskers take on Purdue Saturday afternoon in West Lafayette, Ind.
Tip-off between the Big Red (16-9, 8-6) and the Boilermakers (11-13, 4-9 Big Ten) at Mackey Arena is set for 3 p.m. (CT), with live video coverage for B1G+ subscribers.
Fans also can listen across the Huskers Radio Network, including 107.3 FM in Lincoln and 590 AM in Omaha, the Huskers App and Huskers.com with Matt Coatney and Jeff Griesch calling the action. Pregame starts at 2:30 p.m. (CT). 
The Huskers are coming off an 80-47 loss at No. 2 Ohio State on Wednesday - Nebraska’s second straight game against the nation’s No. 2 team after knocking off then-No. 2 Iowa 82-79 on Sunday, Feb. 11. Nebraska’s win over the Hawkeyes matched the highest ranked team the Big Red had ever beaten in women’s basketball, joining a 103-99 3OT win over then-No. 2 and eventual NCAA champion Baylor (Jan. 12, 2005).
After the Huskers experienced one of the high points in program history against Iowa, they committed a season-high 30 turnovers and were held to a season-low 47 points at Ohio State. No Husker managed double-figure points against the Buckeyes, snapping a streak of 226 games with at least one double-digit scorer dating back to a Dec. 21, 2016 loss to No. 1 UConn.
Jaz Shelley captured the first Big Ten Player-of-the-Week honor of her career Monday and Nebraska’s first AP National Player of the Week award Tuesday, after leading the Huskers with a season-high 23 points on 5-of-10 three-point shooting in the win over Iowa. Shelley scored Nebraska’s final seven points, including a three-pointer with 31 seconds left to give the Huskers their first lead of the game at 78-77. Shelley scored 10 points in the fourth quarter to help Nebraska outscore Iowa 27-10 in the final period and erase a 14-point Iowa lead after three periods. Shelley was also key in holding Iowa’s Caitlin Clark scoreless in the fourth quarter for the first time in her college career.
Natalie Potts added her sixth Big Ten Freshman-of-the-Week award of the season on Monday, after putting up 14 points and six rebounds against Iowa. A leading candidate for Big Ten Freshman-of-the-Year honors, Potts had eight points and five rebounds in the fourth quarter against the Hawkeyes. The 6-2 forward from O’Fallon, Mo., leads Big Ten freshmen in rebounding (5.3 rpg), field goal percentage (.519) and free throw percentage (.842) while ranking second in scoring (10.4 ppg).
Alexis Markowski has been Nebraska’s most consistent player this season, averaging 16.1 points and 10.4 rebounds while leading the Big Ten with 14 double-doubles, which is tied for 10th nationally. The 6-3 center from Lincoln was held to nine points and 16 rebounds at Ohio State.

Head Coach: Katie Gearlds (Purdue, 2007)
Third Season at Purdue (47-39); 11th Season Overall (275-83)
Scouting The Purdue Boilermakers
Third-year head coach Katie Gearlds led Purdue to the NCAA First Four last season, finishing with a 19-11 overall record that included a 9-8 Big Ten mark. This season, Purdue worked its way to a 6-3 start, but has gone just 5-10 since, including a string of seven straight Big Ten losses that ended with a 68-54 setback at Nebraska (Jan. 31). 
Since the loss in Lincoln, Purdue is 2-1 with a 77-72 home win over Illinois (Feb. 5) and a 74-48 road win at Northwestern (Feb. 14) sandwiched around a 95-62 loss at No. 14 Indiana (Feb. 11).
Purdue is 9-3 at home this year with its only losses coming to top-15 Iowa (96-71), Indiana (74-68) and Ohio State (71-68) squads. The Boilermakers are 2-8 away from Mackey Arena. 
Fifth-year guard Abbey Ellis, who was a Cal Poly transfer prior to 2021-22, leads an experienced Purdue backcourt with 13.0 points and 3.6 rebounds. The 5-6 Australian ranks second among the Boilermakers with 33 three-pointers, while leading the team with 61 free throws.
Fifth-year point guard Jeanae Terry, who started her career at Illinois, has joined Ellis and senior guard Madison Layden in Purdue’s starting backcourt for all 24 games. The 5-11 Terry averages 5.4 points and team bests of 7.2 rebounds and 6.0 assists while leading the team in steals with 39. Layden, a 6-1 guard, has added 10.3 points and leads Purdue in three-point shooting at 44.3 percent (51-115).
Caitlyn Harper, a graduate transfer from Cal Baptist in her second season on the court at Purdue, also has started all 24 games, averaging 11.3 points and 4.0 rebounds. The 6-2 forward is shooting a team-best 55.6 percent from the field, including 32.1 percent (18-56) from three-point range, while hitting 89.7 percent (35-39) of her free throws.
Purdue also features two of the Big Ten’s top freshmen in starter Mary Ashley Stevenson and key reserve Rashunda Jones. Stevenson, a 6-2 forward who is the reigning USBWA National Freshman of the Week and Co-Big Ten Freshman of the Week with Nebraska’s Natalie Potts, is averaging 10.0 points and 5.1 rebounds. Jones, a 5-8 guard, has added 8.2 points and 2.6 rebounds while playing more minutes than any other Boiler reserve.
A third freshman, Sophie Swanson, has contributed 5.6 points with consistent three-point shooting (.385) over 17 games. Swanson, who spent the early part of the season completing her recovery from an ACL injury, is averaging nearly 10 minutes per game.
Junior Jayla Smith returns as a significant contributor from a year ago (7.8 ppg, 2.1 rpg), but her production has slipped to 3.7 ppg and 1.4 rpg in about five fewer minutes per game.
Purdue has missed the mid-range production of 2022-23 graduate guard Lasha Petree, who averaged a team-best 14.7 points per game last year. She led the Boilers with 111 two-point baskets last season and also ranked second on the team with 77 made free throws. 
As a team, Purdue is averaging 68.4 points while allowing 69.2 points per game The Boilermakers have hit 42.1 percent of their shots from the field, including 33 percent of their threes. They are also a solid 77.7 percent at the free throw line. Defensively, Purdue opponents are hitting 42.5 percent from the field, including a sizzling 35.6 percent from three and 76.4 percent at the free throw line. Purdue is basically even with the opposition on the boards and in the turnover department.

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 25 games in 2023-24. The 6-3 junior center from Lincoln, Neb., has recorded a Big Ten-leading 14 double-doubles on the year, including eight through the first 14 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 10.4 boards per game, including 11.3 in conference play. She also ranks seventh in the league in scoring at 16.1 points per game.
With her next double-double, Markowski will match her total from a year ago with 15, which is the third-best season total in Husker history trailing only 16 by Nafeesah Brown (1993-94) and 20 by All-American Kelsey Griffin (20, 2009-10).
Markowski owns 35 career double-doubles, putting her just one 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.
Markowski scored in double figures in the first 24 games this season, including five 20-point performances, before being held to nine points and 16 rebounds at No. 2 Ohio State (Feb. 14).
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 846.
Potts Claims Sixth Big Ten Freshman Award
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., has claimed six of the first 13 Big Ten Freshman-of-the-Week awards with the most recent coming on Feb. 12.
In addition to her conference honors, Potts was named the No. 14 impact freshman in the nation by ESPN on Dec. 22. She ranks second among all Big Ten freshmen in scoring (10.4 ppg), while leading league freshmen in rebounding (5.3 rpg), field goal percentage (.519) and free throw percentage (.842). She also leads the Huskers with 16 blocked shots through 25 games. 
Potts produced her 15th double-figure scoring effort of the season with 14 points and six rebounds in Nebraska’s 82-79 upset of No. 2 Iowa (Feb. 11). She produced eight points and five rebounds in helping the Huskers outscore the Hawkeyes 27-10 in the decisive fourth quarter. It followed a 12-point performance in a huge road win at Michigan (Feb. 6) that helped her claim her sixth Big Ten Freshman-of-the-Week honor. 
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 (5.1 rpg) in league play. She also ranks second on the team with 1.0 steal per game in the Big Ten.
She posted her second double-double with 17 points and a career-high 13 rebounds in NU’s win over Maryland (Dec. 31), including 13 points and 12 boards in the second half. 
Potts scored all 16 of her points in the second half in a win at Wisconsin (Jan. 4). 
She opened Big Ten play with 10 points, five rebounds and two blocks in the win over NCAA NET No. 8 Michigan State (Dec. 9). 
Potts produced 10 points and six rebounds at Minnesota (Jan. 14), while Gopher freshman Grace Grochalski was held scoreless while managing just two rebounds.
Potts had 11 points, eight rebounds and two blocks in 21 minutes in a win over UNCW (Dec. 5). 
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.
She opened another strong week by notching her first double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds in a win over Florida Atlantic (Nov. 29). She followed with 13 points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in a win over Georgia Tech (Dec. 2).
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).
She backed up her opening week with 11.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in her second week, including 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting against No. 22 Creighton (Nov. 19). She had seven points, 11 rebounds and a career-high three blocks in a win over Alcorn State (Nov. 14).
Through 25 games, Potts has hit 91-of-146 (.623) two-point field goal attempts.
White Shines in Starting Role for Huskers
Nebraska has received an immediate boost in the backcourt from three-time first-team All-Big Sky guard Darian White.
White is averaging 8.0 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists with 23 starts in 24 games. She missed Nebraska’s win at Michigan (Feb. 6) with a leg injury, but returned to score four points off the bench in NU’s 82-79 win over No. 2 Iowa (Feb. 11). 
She suffered the minor injury in the closing seconds of Nebraska’s loss to Rutgers (Feb. 3), after producing 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.
She scored a season-high 16 points against TCU (Nov. 25). 
White had 13 points and five rebounds in a win over Michigan (Jan. 17). She added 12 points and three assists at Penn State (Jan. 21), before getting seven points, four rebounds and three assists in just 14 minutes at No. 5 Iowa (Jan. 27). 
The 5-6 graduate student transferred into the Husker program during the summer after averaging 14.3 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.2 steals over 120 starts in four seasons at Montana State. 
The No. 2 scorer in Montana State history, White finished with 1,716 points, 612 rebounds, 449 assists and 260 steals.
White was the 2022 Big Sky Tournament MVP, leading the Bobcats to the conference title and a trip to the 2022 NCAA Tournament.
She was also a two-time Big Sky Defensive Player of the Year (2021, 2022) and the 2020 Big Sky Freshman of the Year.
White was the 2019 Idaho Gatorade High School Player of the Year and joins three-time North Dakota Gatorade Player of the Year Logan Nissley, two-time Missouri MaxPreps Player of the Year Natalie Potts and Australian National Program forward Jessica Petrie in Nebraska’s group of four newcomers for 2023-24.
White produced her first Husker double-double with season highs of 13 points and 10 rebounds against No. 22 Creighton (Nov. 19).
In her Nebraska regular-season debut, White scored 13 points, including six in a 16-0 run to start the game, while adding game highs of nine rebounds and three steals to go along with four assists in Nebraska’s 90-42 win over Northwestern State (Nov. 6).

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).
White took the court for the first time at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Nebraska’s exhibition win over Dakota Wesleyan (Oct. 29), producing 13 points, seven rebounds and game highs of eight assists and four steals.
