LINCOLN — A third Australian is joining the Nebraska women’s basketball team.
Jaz Shelley, who played her first two seasons at Oregon and started 12 games, announced on Twitter she was transferring to NU. Due to NCAA COVID allowances, Shelley will have three years of eligibility left.
Shelley was best known at Oregon for hitting a school record ten 3-pointers in a 2019 game. In 2020-2021, she averaged 4.0 points, 1.7 rebounds and a steal while starting 11 games.
She becomes the third player from Australia on NU’s team, joining Issie Bourne and Ruby Porter. Thus far Nebraska has lost just one player off of last year’s team, Kate Cain, who opted to turn pro after starting for four seasons.
Looking back at the last five seasons of Nebraska women's basketball
Nebraska women's hoops fell short of the NCAA tourney, but it had plenty of highlights this year — including five wins over ranked teams. And next year, the Huskers will give everyone a "run for their money."
