Sophomore (2010-11)
Layne (pronounced LANE) Reeves announced the end of her basketball career on Jan. 13, after a long battle with knee injuries.

Reeves, who has undergone five knee surgeries since 2004, had her most recent surgery on her right knee on Nov. 24. She had her first surgery on her right knee in March of 2004, after tearing her ACL in 2003.

As a high school senior, she tore her left ACL, which required two surgeries in Texas and a third surgery in January of 2009 as a freshman at Nebraska.

The 5-11 shooting guard redshirted as a true freshman while recovering from the injury.

In her first season on the court for the Huskers in 2009-10, Reeves appeared in 24 games and hit 53.3 percent (8-15) of her three-point attempts.

In 2010-11, Reeves hit 1-of-2 three-pointers, pulled down a pair of rebounds and dished out two assists in 11 minutes of action in a win over Vermont on Nov. 13.

Redshirt Freshman (2009-10)
After sitting out the 2008-09 season while recovering from an ACL tear suffered in high school, Reeves contributed to Nebraska's 32-2 season and the school's first-ever Big 12 title.

Reeves averaged 1.3 points and 0.7 rebounds while appearing in 24 games for the Huskers, including three points in 12 minutes in NU's NCAA Tournament win over Northern Iowa on March 21.

She set career bests by scoring six points in Husker wins over South Dakota and Northern Illinois. Reeves added five points against Idaho State, and added a four-point effort in the Huskers' run past Albany on Dec. 30.

A talented shooter from long range, Reeves knocked down 8-of-15 of her three-point attempts on the season.

Against Northern Illinois on Dec. 13, Reeves scored six points on a pair of three-pointers and set a career best with two assists. She also drained a pair of threes in the win over South Dakota on Dec. 3, while also pulling down two boards and blocking her first career shot. She also played a career-high 13 minutes against the Coyotes.

Reeves also registered a career best with four rebounds in a lopsided win over Washington State, while adding two points.

Reeves opened her first season on the court for the Huskers by scoring one point, while grabbing three rebounds and a career-best two steals in a season-opening win over Davidson on Nov. 13.

She made her Big 12 Conference debut against No. 19 Texas on Jan. 12, dishing out one assist and grabbing one rebound. She also played five minutes in NU's win at No. 9 Baylor on Jan. 17. She added her first three-pointer in Big 12 action in her hometown of Lubbock in NU's run past Texas Tech.

Redshirt (2008-09)
After suffering an ACL tear to her knee in December of 2007 as a high school senior, Reeves hoped to be ready to contribute as a true freshman for the Huskers in 2008-09.

However, complications with the injury occurred early in her freshman campaign at Nebraska and she underwent an additional knee surgery in January of 2009.

Reeves did not play at all as a true freshman, although she did see extensive practice time early in the year. After sitting out for more than a month following her January surgery, Reeves was able to return to the practice court for the Huskers in March.

High School
In her first three seasons of high school competition, Reeves helped the Lady Lions to a 96-19 overall record. She also earned TAPPS District 1-4A co-MVP honors as a sophomore from the Dallas Morning News in 2005-06.

Reeves earned first-team all-state recognition for the private large school division from the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches.

She also earned all-state honors from the Texas Girls Coaches Association. She helped lead Trinity Christian to its fifth straight TAPPS state title game, and its first as a member of Class 5A in 2007.

In 2005 and 2006, Reeves helped the Lady Lions to Class 4A state championships under Coach Tory Bryant. In 2007, Trinity Christian finished as the state runner-up with a 31-8 overall record in Class 5A.

Reeves had her senior season of high school cut short by a knee injury in December of 2007. She played in 14 games as a senior prior to the injury.

Reeves showed her commitment to the game by playing for both the Lubbock Lady Hawks club team and the Texas Express 89 club team. In order to play for the Express, Reeves had to regularly make the five-hour drive to Dallas from Lubbock to play for Coach Dianna Sager's elite team.

Off the court, Reeves is committed to helping others. Before her senior year of high school began at Trinity Christian, Reeves visited Africa and was involved in missionary work to bring medical supplies and other daily necessities to the people of Zimbabwe.
