Kelly develops all-around game to complement defense
UNO’s Taijhe Kelly, who averaged 4.9 points per game last season, has raised her scoring average this year to 7.0 points per game. She’s also shooting 57.7 percent from the field, up from 42.7 as a freshman and 49.6 as a sophomore.

As a developing Division I basketball player who is 1,600 miles from home, Taijhe Kelly doesn’t get to see family and old friends that often.
But UNO’s 6-foot-4 junior center gets that chance this weekend, as the Mavericks play Saturday at Cal State-Bakersfield and Sunday at Long Beach State. The Long Beach State campus is about 15 minutes from Kelly’s home in Carson, Calif., while Bakersfield is a couple of hours away.
