LINCOLN — The Nebraska women's basketball team has 10 players on the roster. Coach Connie Yori regularly plays seven of them. And, in truth, the heart of the squad is comprised of five starters who landed on one All-Big Ten team or another.

Ideally, Yori said hours after NU won the Big Ten tournament, she'd prefer to run waves of players at opponents. It fits her preferred style of defense, a get-after-it, end-to-end approach that creates turnovers and reduces opposing guards to frustration or tears. As recently as 2012, she had that kind of team. She'll have it again next year, when the most highly rated recruiting class of her tenure hits campus.
