NU’s Shepard Named To Preseason All-Big Ten Team

Nebraska’s Jessica Shepard has been named to the Big Ten’s preseason all-conference team in women’s basketball.

Shepard earned Big Ten Freshman of the Year honors last season. The 6-4 forward from Fremont led the Huskers with 18.5 points and 8.6 rebounds a game. She became the first NU freshman in history to earn first-team all-conference honors.

Two-time defending champ Maryland was picked by Big Ten coaches to win the conference title again this season.
