Bio

One of the best pure shooters in Nebraska history, Kate Galligan ranks seventh on the Husker all-time list with 145 made three-pointers in her four-year career, trailing only Kiera Hardy, Jordan Hooper, Yvonne Turner, Lindsey Moore, Amy Stephens and Tear'a Laudermill. Galligan also ranks 28th all time at Nebraska with 1,069 points.She is one of 32 Huskers in history to produce 1,000 career points.

Galligan's 377 career three-point attempts rank ninth on the NU charts, while her .385 career three-point percentage is tied for fifth. Her six made three-pointers in a 94-85 loss at Kansas on Feb. 11, 1996, is tied for the ninth-best single-game total in school history.

Not surprisingly, the 5-8 guard from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is also one of the best free throw shooters in school history, connecting on 77.6 percent (242-312) of her attempts. Her 12-for-12 shooting performance from the free throw line against Missouri on Feb. 18, 1996, and her 10-for-10 effort at the line against Iowa State on Feb. 27, 1994, rank as two of only 13 perfect free throw performances in NU history. She also ranks 14th at Nebraska with 299 career assists. She earned honorable-mention All-Big Eight recognition as a senior in 1995-96. Along with being a standout shooter, Galligan was an outstanding student, becoming a four-time first-team academic all-conference selection.

Galligan helped the Huskers to the third NCAA Tournament bid in school history during her senior season, where she scored a team-high 12 points, while adding four assists and three rebounds in a 66-62 loss to Colorado State at Stanford, Calif., on March 17, 1996.
