Nebraska guard Sam Haiby will miss the 2022-23 women’s basketball season with a leg injury.

Head coach Amy Williams made the announcement Friday. “We are obviously disappointed that Sammi will not be on the court with us this season,” she said, “but she remains a critical member of our team. We will continue to lean on her for leadership and guidance.”

Haiby is the only player in program history to reach the combined career milestones of 1,000 points (1,381), 500 rebounds (532) and 400 assists (414). She  ranks No. 8 at Nebraska in career assists and No. 15 in career points.

A four-time letter winner and two-time team captain who has played in 117 games, Haiby was a second-team All-Big Ten choice as a junior in 2020-21 when she averaged 16.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game. Last season, Haiby helped the Huskers to the NCAA Tournament by averaging 11.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.9 assists.

Haiby earned her bachelor’s degree as a nutrition and health sciences major in May.

The Huskers open the season Nov. 7 against Nebraska-Omaha after an Oct. 30 exhibition against Washburn.
