Outlook (2012-13)
Entering her third year in the Nebraska program, sophomore Rebecca Woodberry plans to provide consistent contributions in the backcourt.

As a redshirt freshman in 2011-12, Woodberry averaged 4.5 points and 3.3 rebounds per game, while playing in 31 of NU's 33 contests. She averaged more than 13 minutes per game off the bench, while giving the Huskers a dangerous threat from three-point range.

Woodberry's 26 made three-pointers on the season ranked as the sixth-best total in Nebraska history by a freshman. Her accuracy improved throughout the season, as she shot a sizzling 37.9 percent (11-29) from long range in Big Ten play.

The 2010 Gatorade Arizona High School Player of the Year, Woodberry also gives the Huskers solid leadership skills on and off the court. In 2012-13, she will serve as the vice-president of the Nebraska Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. She also earned academic All-Big Ten honors in 2011-12.

"Becca is a skilled guard who can score in a variety of ways. She shoots the three well, can work her way to the basket, scores in the post, and can score on offensive rebounds." Nebraska Coach Connie Yori said. "She is also a good student."

Redshirt Freshman (2011-12)
Woodberry made an impact in her first year on the court by providing the Huskers with a big player on the perimeter who could score and rebound. She averaged 4.5 points and 3.3 rebounds per game while playing 31 contests.

She pumped in a career-high 14 points on 5-of-5 shooting against the Badgers to help the Huskers to victory Jan. 12. She suffered a sprained ankle late in the game with Wisconsin. The injury limited her playing time in the next several contests.

She re-emerged with seven points and two rebounds at Michigan State Feb. 23 and had eight points, six boards an assist and a steal in NU's 71-57 win over No. 8 Ohio State Feb. 26.
