Grand Rapids' Kane returns to Northland, now closer to loved ones with UW-Superior

Posted: Updated:

After an all-state senior season with Grand Rapids, Taylor Kane's plan was to spend the next four years playing Division II women's basketball at Northern State University. 

She played two seasons for the Wolves in Aberdeen, South Dakota, but it turned out to be the wrong fit for Kane. 

"Being there, I didn't get as many opportunities as I was hoping to at that level," Kane said.

Fortunately for Kane, she had options. The forward posted 16 points, 10 rebounds per game in her senior season of high school with the Thunderhawks, and the University of Wisconsin Superior (UWS) took notice.

"I knew that Superior looked at me right out of high school and it was an option at that time," she said. 

Following her sophomore season with Northern State, Kane transferred to UWS. Along with more opportunities on the court, motivating Kane to return to the Northland was proximity to her loved ones. 

"I live very close to here so my parents and family members can come and watch whenever they want," she said. "It was tough living 6.5 hours away. This is so much better." 

In 10 games this season with the Yellowjackets, Kane is averaging six points and four rebounds per game.
