Nebraska senior Kelsey Griffin is one of 50 players added to the Naismith Trophy Preseason Watch List announced by the Atlanta Tipoff Club. Griffin is having a great start this season after missing last year with ankle surgery.
Griffin is the top active rebounder in the Big 12 and third active in scoring. Griffin was key in sending the Huskers to back to back NCAA tournament appearances before last season. She has averaged a double-double in the Huskers first two wins this season. Tonight the Huskers will host Idaho State.
The 6’2 forward from Eagle River, Alaska, is a two-time first-team All-Big 12 selection and a 2010 All-America candidate. Griffin was named to the preseason All-Big 12 squad for the third time.
