Maurtice Ivy, who had a pioneerlike influence in Husker women's basketball, will be inducted into the 2020 Nebraska Athletic Hall of Fame, the school announced Wednesday.
Ivy is the fourth announced member in the class, joining Terry Pettit (volleyball), Jordan Larson (volleyball) and Amanda Burgoyne (bowling). Two more student-athlete inductees will be named at a later date.
