Nebraska Athletic Communications

An ambitious and meticulous competitor, Nebraska sophomore-to-be Makenzie Helms has grown up committed to making the most out of every opportunity.

While the coronavirus outbreak has been devastating to many around the world, especially near her home on the East Coast, Helms has focused on maximizing the opportunities the break from organized basketball has provided in multiple areas of her own life. From creating stronger family connections, to personal health, individual basketball development and academic success, Helms is focused on the positives following her return to Lincoln after spending nearly two months at home in Connecticut.
