Nebraska senior guard Lindsey Moore and junior forward Jordan Hooper were among 25 women’s college basketball players named to the Wade Watch List on Tuesday. The Huskers were one of five schools with players on the list for the award that annually recognizes the best player in women’s college basketball.
Moore averaged 15.7 points and 5.1 assists last year while Hooper averaged 18.9 points and 9.3 rebounds.
The last Husker to win the Wade Trophy was Karen Jennings in 1993. In 2010, Kelsey Griffin was a finalist.
On Monday, Lindy’s Sports preseason magazine tabbed NU as the No. 19 team in the country.
