Huskers Preseason Pick to Win Big Ten

Chicago - Nebraska was voted the preseason pick to win the Big Ten women's basketball regular-season title by both conference coaches and media in 2014. The picks were announced before the start of Big Ten Media Day in Chicago on Thursday morning.

The Big Ten coaches and select media panel chose the Huskers to finish on top of the final conference standings, while defending champion Penn State was picked No. 2. Michigan State was No. 3 in a selection process where voters only chose their top three teams. The Big Ten does not do a full preseason ranking of all 12 teams in women’s basketball.

It is the first time as a Big Ten member institution and the first time under Coach Connie Yori that the Huskers have been a preseason pick to win a conference title.

Husker senior Jordan Hooper was a unanimous choice of Big Ten coaches to the preseason All-Big Ten team. The 6-2 forward from Alliance, Neb., also earned a spot on the five-player media team. Preseason Big Ten Player of the Year Maggie Lucas from Penn State was a unanimous choice to both all-conference teams, while Minnesota’s Rachel Banham added a unanimous selection from the league media.
