Hello Corn Nation! I am Nathaniel Perlow your new friendly neighborhood women’s basketball writer. I just graduated from the University of Nebraska with a Bachelor’s Degree in Broadcasting. I still live in Lincoln so I hope to do a lot of coverage for Corn Nation on some of the small Husker sports once things get rolling! Along with the Huskers I also love the Arsenal, Vancouver Canucks and Seattle Seahawks.
The Lady Huskers have a schedule packed with quality opponents for the upcoming 2013-14 season. The team will return without Meghin Williams and WBNA 1st round draft pick Lindsey Moore. Joining the Husker squad this season are Seward native Hannah Tvrdy, all-state forward from Michigan, Allie Havers and an import from Quebec, Canada, guard Esther Ramacieri.
