Senior (2010-11)
Catheryn Redmon produced the best individual season of her Nebraska career as a senior in 2010-11. The 6-3 center from Grand Prairie, Texas, averaged career bests of 9.5 points and 7.2 rebounds while ranking third in the Big 12 with 2.4 blocked shots per game.

Redmon, who started all 31 games as senior, blocked a career-best 77 shots in 2010-11, which ranked as the second-highest single-season total in school history trailing on Danielle Page's record 78 in 2007-08. Redmon finished with the second-best career total in school history with 216, capped by an NU Big 12 Tournament record and season-high six blocks in the final game of her career against Iowa State in the Big 12 Tournament in Kansas City, Mo., on March 8.

During the regular season, Redmon notched five blocks against Missouri, Kansas State (twice), Kansas, Indiana and Northern Colorado.

Redmon closed her 112-game Nebraska career with 55 starts, while averaging 5.9 points and 5.2 rebounds per game. She produced nine career double-doubles, including six as a senior. She recorded one of the best overall efforts in the final home regular-season performance when she had a career-high 19 points to go along with 10 rebounds, two blocks and a steal against Colorado on March 2.

She added 17 points and 10 rebounds in a win at Washington State on Nov. 22. She produced 15 points and a career-high 17 rebounds to go along with five blocks and three steals in an overtime win over Kansas on Jan. 16, when she played a career-high 42 minutes.

Redmon added 12 points, 14 rebounds and five more blocks in the next outing at Kansas State on Jan. 22. She closed non-conference play with 12 points and 12 rebounds in a win over Florida A&M on Jan. 2. She posted the first double-double of her senior season with 14 points on 7-of-8 shooting to go along with 13 rebounds in NU's win over eventual ACC regular-season champion Miami on Nov. 17.

For the season, Redmon scored in double figures 13 times, while producing double-figure rebounds on six occasions. She led the Huskers with her 54.6 field goal percentage on the year, while her career 53.9 field goal percentage ranked fifth in school history, right behind former teammate Kelsey Griffin.

 "Catheryn is a very athletic post player who runs the floor extremely well for her size," Nebraska Coach Connie Yori said. "She is our best low-block defender as a true 5-player, which means we don't have to double the post as much. That makes our team defense better."

Junior (2009-10)
Redmon returned to a reserve role with the return of All-American forward Kelsey Griffin.

Redmon averaged 4.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and a team-leading 1.9 blocks per contest, which ranked 51st nationally and tied for third in the Big 12.

Redmon enjoyed a 10-point, eight-rebound, seven-block effort in just 18 minutes in a win over Albany on Dec. 30. Her seven rejections tied her career high. She set NU's single-season mark for juniors with 63 on the year.

She had a season-high 14 points on 6-of-7 shooting in a win over South Dakota on Dec. 3. She added seven rebounds, three blocks and an assist in just 18 minutes. Redmon had 12 points, four boards, three blocks and two steals in NU's win at Miami, again hitting 6-of-7 shots from the field. She had eight points, 10 boards and four blocks against Washington State, and eight points and nine rebounds at UNLV. She added eight points, eight boards and four blocks against Northern Illinois. She had eight points, five rebounds and two blocks in 15 minutes against No. 12 Texas A&M.

Sophomore (2008-09)
Redmon stepped into a starting role and established herself as one of the best shot-blockers in Husker history.

She started the first game of her career just days after two-time All-Big 12 forward Kelsey Griffin underwent season-ending ankle surgery on Dec. 4. Redmon made her starting debut against 2008 and 2009 Big Ten Conference Player-of-the-Year Jantel Lavender and Big Ten champion Ohio State.

Redmon scored 10 points, grabbed two rebounds, blocked two shots and added a steal against Lavender and the Buckeyes. Defensively, she frustrated Lavender throughout the game until Redmon was forced to the bench with foul trouble midway through the second half. The Buckeyes, who went on to the 2009 NCAA Sweet 16, escaped from the Devaney Center with a 69-65 win.

Redmon went on to average 5.7 points and 5.5 rebounds per game on the year while making 24 consecutive starts to close the season. She averaged 23.2 minutes per game, including 28.5 minutes in Big 12 action. Redmon averaged 5.8 points and 6.1 boards in Big 12 games, while ranking third in the conference with 2.8 blocks.

While Redmon's talent was a bit raw on the offensive end, she wowed crowds with her dominant defense. She closed the year with 67 blocked shots - the fourth-highest total in Husker history trailing only Danielle Page's school-record 78 in 2007-08, and NU career block leader Janet Smith's 69 in 1979-80. Redmon's block total was even more amazing considering she had only three rejections in NU's first seven non-conference games while playing a total of just 56 minutes in those contests.

In her 24 games as a starter, she averaged 2.7 blocks per contest, including 3.7 blocks per game in Nebraska's final nine games of the season. During the nine-game stretch to close the year, Redmon matched the second-best single-game block total in school history with seven rejections in NU's win over No. 20 Kansas State on Feb. 25. She added four points and eight rebounds in a career-high 34 minutes against the Wildcats.

She also produced five blocked shots to go along with six points and six boards in the Huskers' home win over Colorado on March 3, before adding five more blocks to go along with five points and seven rebounds in NU's loss at New Mexico in the Postseason WNIT. Overall she produced five games with five or more blocked shots, and finished the year with a streak of nine straight games with at least one block.

Redmon scored in double figures seven times as a starter, including a season-high 13 points in a win over Cal State Bakersfield Dec. 9. In that game, she notched one of the top rebounding totals in NU history with 15 boards for her first career double-double.

She added a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds at UTEP on Dec. 20, before contributing her third career double-double with 12 points, 11 rebounds and five blocked shots at Missouri on Jan. 17. Redmon had 12 points and nine boards at Colorado on Jan. 31. She also produced double-figure scoring efforts with 10 points against Ohio State, 12 points in a win over No. 24 Arizona State on Dec. 28, and 10 points on a 4-for-4 shooting effort at Kansas on Feb. 28.

Freshman (2007-08)
Redmon provided immediate contributions to a deep and talented inside game for the Huskers as a true freshman. She averaged 2.4 points and 2.3 rebounds per game, while appearing in 16 of NU's 33 contests. She averaged nearly seven minutes per game and shot 53.3 percent from the field.

Redmon produced a season high with nine points in NU's win over Akron at the Oahu Classic on Nov. 25. She added a season-best six rebounds in NU's win at Long Beach State on Dec. 15, before adding six more boards in back-to-back wins over Denver and Arkansas-Pine Bluff.

High School
Redmon was ranked as the No. 14 post player in the nation by the All-Star Girls Report and the No. 59 player overall in the country by the recruiting service before her senior season.

Redmon played her senior year at Mansfield Timberview High School, after attending DeSoto High School as a junior. In her only season at Mansfield Timberview, Redmon was named the District 4-5A MVP, while earning third-team Class 5A all-state honors from the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches (TABC). She averaged 11.5 points, 9.2 rebounds and 3.1 blocked shots per game. She also shot 56 percent from the field.

A first-team all-region selection by the TABC, Redmon played in the TABC All-Star Game in San Antonio on May 4. Redmon led Mansfield Timberview to a 31-4 overall record and a perfect 14-0 district mark for Coach Candi Harvey, who was the former head coach of the WNBA's San Antonio Silver Stars.

In both her sophomore and junior seasons, Redmon helped DeSoto High School to 33-4 records. In the 2005-06 Fullcourt Press preseason poll, DeSoto was ranked as the No. 22 high school team nationally. DeSoto advanced to the Class 5A regional title game, where it lost to eventual Texas Class 5A state champion Plano West, 50-47.

Redmon averaged seven points and six rebounds per game as a sophomore and junior at DeSoto.

Redmon played club basketball for Team Ichiban for Coach Gene Watts. She also played with the Dallas Stars for Coach Roosevelt Riley.
