For all the bad things happening on the football field, good things are happening to the volleyballers.
Last night during the team's 100th consecutive sell-out uber alles athlete Sarah Pavan broke Alliston Weston's school record in kills while the Huskers swept Kansas 30-16, 30-25, 30-26. Pavan now has 1,780 kills for her career (for non-volleyballers, a kill is an successful attack that results in an immediate point).
With the win, Nebraska improved to 17-0, 10-0 in the Big 12, placing them a game ahead on Texas (14-3, 10-1 Big 12). In 17 matches, Nebraska has lost only a single game.
Nebraska's #1-ranked volleyball team takes on the #11-ranked Hawaii Wahine at 5:00 pm central at the Devaney Center. General public tickets are sold out, UNL students can get in free with a valid student ID. More than 13,000 tickets have been sold, making the game a new NCAA record crowd for volleyball.
The game will be shown in the state of Nebraska on NETV. The only out-of-state video for the game is available through a subscription link at Huskers.com. Audio is available through the Husker Sports Network, and on Huskers.com.
The Husker volleyball team is performing at at incredibly high level, garnering a lot of respect nationally.
