Maurtice Ivy

Maurtice Ivy was the first 2,000-point scorer in Nebraska women's basketball program history.

Maurtice Ivy was announced as the fourth member of the 2020 Nebraska Athletic Hall of Fame class Wednesday.

As the 1988 Big Eight player of the year, Ivy led the Husker women to the conference regular-season title and the program’s first NCAA tournament appearance. Ivy was the first 2,000-point scorer in program history, as well as the first three-time all-conference selection and first conference player of the year for Nebraska. Ivy’s No. 30 was retired in 2011 — the second Husker with that honor.

The Omaha Central grad ended her career as the program’s leader in points (2,131) and points per game (19.2). She ranks second in points per game and field goals (847), third in points and free throws (431), seventh in blocked shots (104) and eighth in rebounds (778). During the 1986-87 season, Ivy set then-school records with 46 points against Illinois and with a season scoring average of 23.6 points per game.

Ivy joins Jordan Larson (volleyball), Amanda Burgoyne Vermilyea (bowling) and volleyball coach Terry Pettit in the 2020 class. The remaining two members will be announced on Huskers.com.
