Hake produced more points (+79), rebounds (+60), assists (+49), steals (+15) and blocks (+1) than her freshman season. She also hit 37.7 percent (40-106) of her three-point attempts, compared to just 33.7 percent in 2022-23.

She produced 14 points, seven rebounds and three steals in a win over Alcorn State (Nov. 14). She opened the season with 12 points on perfect 4-for-4 three-point shooting in a win over Northwestern State (Nov. 6). She contributed 11 points and a career-high four assists in a win over Florida Atlantic (Nov. 29), before pitching in 10 points, five boards a career-high-tying four assists and her first career block in a win over UNCW (Dec. 5). Hake added nine big points on 3-of-5 three-point shooting in a Big Ten-opening win at Michigan State (Dec. 9).

Hake, who averaged 4.3 points while playing in 31 games as a true freshman, stepped up after a season-ending leg injury to returning starter Allison Weidner. Hake also saw increased time with an early season injury to returning starter Maddie Krull. Hake made her second career start in place of Jaz Shelley against No. 22 Creighton (Nov. 19).

“Callin is a versatile guard that can bring a lot of things to our team on the basketball court,” Nebraska Coach Amy Williams said. “I love that she is committed to playing hard on both ends of the court. Not only is Callin the perfect fit for us on the court, but she fits our family. She is not afraid to work and understands how to be a great teammate.”

Hake was also strong for the Huskers off the court, earning spots on the CSC Academic All-District VII Team while adding Academic All-Big Ten honors.
