One of the greatest three-point shooters in Nebraska history, Amy Stephens connected on 129 of 323 long-range attempts (.399) in just two seasons with the three-point shot at her disposal.

The 5-6 guard from Alliance, Neb., still owns Nebraska records with 85 made three-pointers in 216 attempts as a senior in 1988-89, when she produced the third-highest single-season scoring average (21.9 ppg) and seventh-highest point total (612) in school history. She claimed a spot on Nebraska's All-Century Team when it was announced in February of 2000.

Along with being a tremendous scorer with 1,976 career points, Stephens was also a gifted passer, ranking third all-time with 444 assists. She was also a strong defensive player, ranking third all-time at Nebraska with 280 career steals. The four-year starter ranks sixth in Husker history with 113 career starts to go along with the second-highest free throw percentage (.837) in school history.

Stephens erupted for the fourth-highest single-game point total in school history with a 40-point performance in an 85-76 win over Oklahoma on Feb. 8, 1989. She added a 37-point outburst in an 82-79 loss at Kansas, where she tied her own school record that she had set on Dec. 30, 1988, against Iowa with seven three-pointers. Stephens earned Kodak District V All-America honors in 1988-89 to go along with first-team All-Big Eight Conference accolades.

Playing alongside three-time first-team All-Big Eight swing player Maurtice Ivy, Stephens helped the Huskers to the Big Eight title and their first NCAA Tournament in 1988. In a 100-82 loss at USC, Stephens scored 20 points to go along with three assists and two rebounds, while connecting on 4-of-8 three-pointers. After spending the 2002-03 season as an assistant coach at Nebraska, Stephens became the head coach at Drake. She is entering her second season with the Bulldogs.
