A two-time letterwinner and a three-year member of the Nebraska women's basketball team, Darcy Williamson appeared in 62 games with 51 starts at Nebraska. The 5-9 guard/forward from Arapahoe, Neb., earned letters following the 1975-76 and 1977-78 seasons, after her true sophomore season was cut short by an injury.
An explosive offensive player, Williamson closed her NU career with 740 points, 326 rebounds and 136 assists as a swing player for the Huskers. She averaged 11.9 points and 5.3 rebounds during her Nebraska career.
As a true freshman in 1975-76, Williamson led the Huskers in scoring with 13.7 points per game. She finished her freshman season with 426 points, which ranks as the third-highest total by a freshman in NU history, while her scoring average ranks fourth among all NU freshmen. Her 201 field goals in her first year still rank as the highest total ever by an NU freshman, while her 547 field goal attempts are 140 more than any other NU frosh in history.
Williamson's outstanding freshman season was capped by a 29-point outburst against North Carolina State in the National Women's Invitational Tournament in Amarillo, Texas.
After scoring just six points in three games before redshirting as a sophomore, Williamson returned as a sophomore to score 308 points in her third season.
The daughter of B.D. and Sandra Williamson, Darcy was born Aug. 14, 1957 in McCook, Neb. She was a business administration major at Nebraska.
