LINCOLN — There’s a new young star in Big Ten women’s basketball who brings back memories for Nebraska coach Connie Yori. Not precisely fond ones, either.
Amanda Zahui B. is the 6-foot-5 Minnesota redshirt freshman and Swedish import who’s averaging 14.9 points and 11.3 rebounds per game. When the Gophers visit Pinnacle Bank Arena Thursday night, Yori figures she’ll see a player who resembles the dominant Courtney Paris, who vexed the Huskers during her All-America career at Oklahoma.
