Bio

An outstanding all-around athlete, Tina McClain ranks among Nebraska's career leaders in rebounds, steals and blocked shots while ranking 16th with 1,074 points.

The 5-10 forward from Montrose, Mo., was a four-year starter for the Huskers, joining Nebraska's No. 5 all-time leading scorer Anna DeForge as a dangerous 1-2 punch for the Huskers. McClain's 46 career blocks rank ninth on the Husker career charts, while her 181 steals and 641 career rebounds both rank 10th in the NU record books.

McClain earned second-team All-Big Eight honors in 1995-96 before earning honorable-mention All-Big 12 accolades in 1996-97.

McClain enjoyed her best statistical season as a junior in 1995-96, averaging 13.8 points and 6.8 rebounds per game while connecting on 56.2 percent (164-292) of her field goal attempts, which ranks as the ninth-best single-season shooting percentage in NU history. She also hit 82 percent (73-89) of her free throw attempts to tie DeForge for eighth on the Huskers' single-season list. McClain helped the Huskers to the third NCAA Tournament bid in school history in 1996, scoring 11 points and pulling down eight rebounds in the Huskers' 66-62 loss to Colorado State in Stanford, Calif.

McClain posted a career high with 25 points in a 79-77 overtime loss at Iowa State on Jan. 28, 1996, and matched that output in a 70-64 win over Missouri in the Big Eight Tournament on March 2, 1996. She pulled down a career-high 13 rebounds on three occasions.

McClain is currently living in Omaha.
