Kissinger Closes Husker Playing Career

Nebraska guard Taylor Kissinger announced the end of her collegiate playing career on Tuesday, Sept. 15.The 6-1 shooter from Minden, Neb., was preparing for her fourth season with the Husker women's basketball team in 2020-21.

"Injuries are forcing me to move to the next part of my life in basketball, which hopefully leads to a career helping other players achieve their dreams."

Nebraska Coach Amy Williams said she is looking forward to helping Kissinger continue to develop in the next stage of her career.

"We are obviously disappointed to see Taylor's playing career cut short by recurring injuries, but we are excited she will remain with us in a different capacity," Williams said.

She helped the Huskers produce the biggest turnaround in the nation and advance to the 2018 NCAA Tournament, despite missing six games in midseason with a knee injury.

Kissinger missed four games in the concussion protocol early last season, but returned to action and tied a career high with six three-pointers on her way to a team-high 19 points in a win over Duke (Dec. 4) in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
