Jaz Shelley transfers to Nebraska from Oregon Ducks

Ducks

The old saying goes, "Once a Duck, Always a Duck."

While that may be true, Eugene was not a permanent stop for numerous players this offseason who entered the transfer portal, including Jaz Shelley who announced her intention to transfer alongside her teammate Taylor Chavez.

Last week, Chavez announced she's headed to Arizona and on Tuesday, Shelley made her decision public.

The former Oregon Duck is headed to Nebraska to become a Cornhusker.

The Cornhuskers went 13-13 in 2020-21, failing to make the NCAA Tournament.

Shelley averaged 4.0 points, 1.9 assists and 1.7 rebounds this season. She missed the first two games of the team's NCAA tournament run, and despite the team having two injured guards, she played just five minutes in the team's Sweet 16 loss to Louisville, all in garbage time. 

During her freshman season, she was a crucial part of the rotation averaging 6.3 points, 1.5 assists and 1.0 rebounds per game while shooting 42.0 percent from three-point range. She broke the program's single-game record for three-pointers made in a game, with 10 against UC Riverside. 

She also has experience for the Austrialian national teams, winning gold at the 2016 FIBA U17 Worlds for the first time in the country's history. 

 

Shelley has three seasons of college eligibility remaining.
