Nebraska coach Connie Yori announced Wednesday that sophomore guard Rebecca Woodberry is no longer a member of the Husker women’s team. Woodberry was removed from NU’s roster for violating team policies.
As a redshirt freshman in 2011-12, Woodberry averaged 4.5 points and 3.3 rebounds while playing in 31 games for the 24-9 Huskers.
Hooper named preseason All-American
Nebraska’s Jordan Hooper was one of 17 players to receive votes in the preseason All-America voting this week, though she did not earn enough to make the six-member team.
Hooper, a 6-2 junior forward from Alliance, Neb., was one of three players from the Big Ten Conference receiving votes, joining Penn State junior Maggie Lucas and Ohio State senior Tayler Hill.
Last season, Hooper averaged 18.9 points and a Big Ten-leading 9.3 rebounds per game. She also led the Big Ten with 14 double-doubles on her way to first-team All-Big Ten honors.
