A Nebraska university has entered into an unusual arrangement with a girls basketball program.
Midland University in Fremont has guaranteed athletic scholarships to practically everyone who plays on the Nebraska Attack.
The scholarships will be worth at least $18,000 a year.
Midland and the Nebraska Attacks have entered into an agreement in which any Attack player who finishes the final two seasons in the program, summers after their sophomore and junior years, will be guaranteed a scholarship to Midland.
The girls must meet certain academic requirements to attend Midland.
Midland is a private university of about 1,400 students which competes in the NAIA. The Nebraska Attack is an AAU basketball program. Each girl who earns a scholarship will make the Midland women’s team.
