Freshman (2014-15)
Jasmine Cincore played in 20 games as a freshman for the Huskers in 2014-15, despite missing more than a month in the middle of the season with an ankle injury.

Cincore, who appeared in each of Nebraska's final eight games of the season, finished with 25 points, four rebounds, 10 assists and seven steals in just 97 total minutes during the season. She averaged 10.3 points, 1.6 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 2.9 steals per 40 minutes throughout the season.

The 5-8 combo guard from Arlington, Tenn., appeared in seven of Nebraska’s first eight games, before being sidelined by an ankle injury following Nebraska's game at Alabama Dec. 7, when she dished out a career-high three assists.

Cincore missed more than a month before returning to action against Penn State Jan. 15. She played in 13 of Nebraska's final 17 games.

She scored a career-high six points in just four minutes off the bench in a win at Wisconsin Jan. 22. Cincore added five points against Alcorn State Nov. 16, after opening the season with four points against Pepperdine Nov. 15.

Cincore was one of the first commits to the 2014 Husker class, bringing power and explosiveness to the seven-player group of newcomers that was ranked among the top 10 classes in the nation by ESPN.

“Jasmine is a strong, scrappy, physical kid who goes hard on every possession,” Nebraska Coach Connie Yori said. “She is a good teammate, a good leader and selfless. She attacks the paint offensively and does a great job of scoring at the basket with her athleticism and strength. She also has the ability to get to the free throw line and might remind Husker fans a little bit of former Husker great Dominique Kelley. She is a high character young lady and student who put a lot of thought into her decision to become a Husker.”

Before Nebraska
As a senior, Cincore led Briarcrest Christian to a 28-1 record under Coach Lee Smith and a berth in the Class 2-AA state tournament, averaging 15.2 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 3.1 steals per game. During her junior season, Cincore averaged 15 points, seven rebounds, four assists and three steals while leading the Saints to a 27-2 record, a 26-game winning streak and the Class 2-AA state semifinals in 2013. For her performance, she was named Miss Basketball in Tennessee Class 2-AA in both 2013 and 2014. She was a first-team Class 2-AA all-state selection by the Tennessee Sportswriters Association both seasons. As a senior, she added first-team All-Tennessee honors from USA Today.

She also played club basketball for the Tennessee Glory. A tremendous all-around athlete, Cincore finished third in the girls shot put at the 2013 Tennessee Division II High School Track and Field Championships with a throw of 35-6.
