A WTF from Nebraska women’s basketball & soccer updates

February 22, 2024

Hi there!

Content warning: This episode contains mention of grooming, sexual abuse, and bullying.

On today’s episode of The GIST of It, co-host Steph Rotz and guest host Lauren Tuiskula start off with a seriously disturbing story out of NCAA basketball. A former Nebraska player filed a lawsuit earlier this week alleging that her former assistant coach groomed and sexually abused her. Steph and Lauren dig into the details, along with the troubling pattern of female athlete abuse by their school’s athletic staff. Absolutely horrific.

Part two features lighter news, though, with the kick-off of some exciting North American soccer action. The CONCACAF W Gold Cup is officially underway, featuring both the No. 2 USWNT and No. 10 CanWNT gearing up for this summer’s Olympics. Meanwhile, the new MLS season is about to enter full swing, highlighted by even more Messi mania. Footy, footy, footy, rockin’ everywhere.
