Yori Named Coach of the Year, Hooper First Team as All-Big Ten Honors Announced

Nebraska’s Connie Yori was named the Big Ten Coach of the Year by her colleagues, while Jordan Hooper earned her second straight first-team award when the All-Big Ten women’s basketball teams were announced Monday.

Yori, in her 11th season at the helm of the Huskers, captured her second conference coach-of-the-year award in the last four seasons and her first in the Big Ten. In 2012-13, Yori guided Nebraska to 10 straight conference wins, including a perfect February, as the Huskers finished with a 12-4 Big Ten mark as the regular-season runner-up.

In addition to Hooper being honored on the All-Big Ten first team, Lindsey Moore captured her second consecutive second-team All-Big Ten award, while Rachel Theriot was a unanimous choice on the Big Ten All-Freshman Team. Sophomore forward Emily Cady added honorable-mention All-Big Ten accolades from the conference media for the second straight year.
