LINCOLN — The younger sister of a Hawkeye is going to be a Husker.

The Nebraska women picked up their first recruit of the 2020 class this week when 6-foot-3 forward Annika Stewart announced on Twitter her commitment to the Huskers.

Annika’s older sister, Hannah, averaged 11.2 points and 6.8 rebounds as a senior starter last season for Iowa, which reached the Elite Eight. The Stewart family hails from Minot, North Dakota, but Annika played last season for Wayzata, a suburb west of Minneapolis.
