Freshman (2023-24)
A member of the Big Ten All-Freshman Team by both the coaches and the media in 2024, Logan Nissley increased her production throughout the season and joined Nebraska’s starting lineup down the stretch. She played in all 35 games for the Huskers, including 10 starts to end the season.

The 6-0 guard out of Bismarck Century High School in North Dakota averaged 7.0 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.1 assists while sinking the second-most three-pointers by a freshman (59) in Nebraska history. The only Husker to hit more threes as a freshman than Nissley was first-team All-American and 2014 Big Ten Player of the Year Jordan Hooper with 67 in 2010-11.

Nissley played a major role in Nebraska's first-round NCAA Tournament win over Texas A&M by matching Alexis Markowski with a team-high 16 points. Nissley buried 4-of-6 threes against the Aggies, while adding three rebounds and two steals in the 61-59 victory. Her two free throws with 17 seconds left gave the Huskers a 60-59 lead.

Her four threes against Texas A&M tied her season high for the fifth time, including a 4-for-10 effort from long range in the Big Ten Championship Game against No. 3 Iowa, when she finished with 13 points and five assists in a career-high 34 minutes. She also went 4-for-6 from long range on her way to 12 points and a career-high six assists in a win over Northwestern (Feb. 20), after going 4-for-5 from beyond the arc in a win over Southern (Dec. 17). Nissley established her career best by hitting 4-of-6 threes on her way to a career-high 18 points in a win over UNCW (Dec. 5).

The three-time North Dakota Gatorade High School Player of the Year matched her career scoring high with 18 points in a road win at Purdue (Feb. 17) in her first career start. Nissley helped Nebraska rally from a 10-point first-quarter deficit by scoring 11 first-half points and NU’s first six points of the second half.

Nissley averaged 9.2 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists while hitting 42.9 percent (21-49) of her three-pointers in 10 games as a starter.

She also erupted for one of her best efforts of the season with 15 points and a career-high seven rebounds in 24 minutes in Nebraska’s 82-79 upset of No. 2 Iowa (Feb. 11), just two games prior to making her starting debut.

Nissley produced 12 double-figure scoring efforts on the season, including 11 points - all in the third quarter - of Nebraska’s 73-61 Big Ten quarterfinal win over Michigan State (March 8). She notched six double-figure efforts in the final 12 games beginning with her 12-point performance in the win over No. 2 Iowa (Feb. 11).

Nissley notched her first double-figure effort with 10 points in a win over Alcorn State (Nov. 14). She added 11 points in 12 minutes against TCU (Nov. 25), before pumping in 11 points in 13 minutes in a win over Georgia Tech (Dec. 2). Nissley hit three threes against the Yellow Jackets, including back-to-back fourth-quarter threes to turn a two-point NU deficit into a four-point lead the Huskers never relinquished. She added 13 points on 3-of-6 three-point shooting against No. 14 Indiana (Jan. 7).

“Logan is a prolific shooter and has an incredible feel for the game,” Nebraska Coach Amy Williams said. “Her skill-set translates perfectly to our team and system, and she is a great match for our team’s culture. Her experience in winning multiple state championships will add to our winning culture.”

During Nebraska’s three-game tour of Greece in early August, Nissley averaged 11.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists and a team-best 3.7 steals.

High School
A three-time North Dakota basketball state player of the year, Nissley averaged 20.8 points, 7.4 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 3.9 steals as a senior in 2022-23. She helped the Patriots to a state runner-up finish for the second straight year, while closing her career with 1,664 points.

Nissley was ranked as the No. 91 player in the Class of 2023 by ESPN after averaging more than 21 points and three steals while hitting 47 percent of her three-pointers as a junior in 2021-22. She led Bismarck Century to a 50-game winning streak over two seasons before claiming a state runner-up finish in 2022. In the 2022 Class A state championship game, Nissley put up 32 points, 11 rebounds and four assists.

As a sophomore in 2020-21, Nissley powered Bismarck Century to a state title to win Gatorade and MaxPreps North Dakota Player of the Year honors after producing school records with 556 points (21.4 ppg), 100 assists and 93 steals while hitting 46.4 percent of her three-point attempts. 

A four-time volleyball letterwinner, Nissley captured back-to-back North Dakota Volleyball Player of the Year awards in 2021 and 2022. She finished her career with more than 1,000 career kills and 1,000 career digs. As a senior, she recorded 361 digs, 357 kills, 34 blocks and 19 service aces while leading the Patriots to their second straight volleyball state championship. 

Nissley played her club basketball for North Tartan - the same program as former Huskers Sam Haiby and Annika Stewart.

The daughter of Brad and Ashley Nissley, Logan was born Oct. 3, 2004 in Bismarck, N.D. She has a younger brother, Garrett. Logan has not declared a major at Nebraska. She selected Nebraska over Gonzaga, Minnesota, Utah and Iowa.

"I chose Nebraska because of the family culture the girls brought to me when I visited," Nissley said. "The program itself and the facilities are amazing, but it felt like my second home and I knew it was meant for me. The coaches were unmatched and were by far my favorite because they cared about me as a person not just an athlete."
