Outlook (2016-17)
Jasmine Cincore will likely step into a greater role for the Huskers both on and off the court for Nebraska in 2016-17.

The 5-10 junior guard from Arlington, Tenn., saw a significant increase in playing time late in her sophomore season. She made six starts for the Huskers in 2015-16, including four in Big Ten regular-season play, the conference tournament and the Postseason WNIT. She stepped into a starting role after season-ending injuries to seniors Rachel Theriot and Kyndal Clark.

Over the final 10 games of the season, Cincore averaged 6.6 points, 2.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.2 steals in nearly 30 minutes per game.

The Huskers, who must replace their entire starting backcourt from 2015-16, will look to Cincore for stability and leadership.

Off the court, Cincore is a three-time member of the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll and a two-time selection to the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team.

"Jas is a strong, athletic guard who is a solid defender and has experience playing Big Ten basketball," Nebraska Coach Amy Williams said. "We are going to need Jasmine to be productive in multiple areas on the court this year, while also providing us with good leadership on the court, in the classroom and the community."

Sophomore (2015-16)
Cincore worked hard during the offseason and positioned herself for a strong sophomore season. The 5-10 combo guard from Arlington, Tenn., started in place of injured senior Rachel Theriot the final five games and six times overall in 2015-16.

Cincore averaged 4.3 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 17.9 minutes per game on the season. She had a career-high 16 points against Indiana Feb. 24. She capped her season with 10 points, four rebounds and three assists against Northern Iowa in the first round of the WNIT. Over the final 10 games, Cincore averaged 6.6 points, 2.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.2 steals in 29.7 minutes per game.

Cincore made her first career start in Nebraska’s win at Michigan Jan. 24. She had eight points, three assists, a block and a steal in 32 minutes. Cincore had nine points and knocked down a pair of threes at No. 5 Ohio State Feb. 18, before making her second career start in place of Theriot in a loss to Purdue Feb. 21.

She hit 27 straight free throws from Dec. 8 to Feb. 14.

In August, Cincore was one of NU’s top players on a four-game trip to Australia. She ranked second among the Huskers in scoring with 10.0 points, while adding 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game against several Australian professional teams.

In September and October, Cincore battled a stress reaction (foot) and missed a month of practice.

Freshman (2014-15)
Cincore played in 20 games as a freshman for the Huskers, 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.

She 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 season-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 season-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.
