Jordan Hooper will be joined by many of her 2013 and 2014 teammates on Alumni Day at Pack PBA, as the women's basketball program honors the 10-year anniversaries of its 2013 NCAA Sweet Sixteen squad and its 2014 Big Ten Championship team. All-American Lindsey Moore and starters Emily Cady and Hailie Sample are expected to attend alongside several other Huskers.
The pride of Alliance, Nebraska, Hooper was a first-team All-American that finished No. 2 in Husker history with 2,357 points while smashing the school record with 295 three-pointers. The 6-2 forward also pulled down 1,110 rebounds to rank No. 3 on the NU career list. Hooper spent nine years playing internationally as a professional, including four seasons in the WNBA after being chosen with the first pick of the second round in the 2014 WNBA by the Tulsa Shock.
