Husker Volleyball

First thing’s first though. Husker volleyball takes the next step in their national championship defense as they take on the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs in the second round of the NCAA tournament. The Huskers once again have home court advantage - expect the Devaney to be rocking.

TCU knocked off Witchita State to advance to this match with the Huskers.

The broadcast will be on NET for all of you in Nebraska. The NET broadcasts will also be streamed online at if your cable provider includes the Big Ten Network. You can also stream live audio for free at Larry Punteney and Kathi Wieskamp will call the action for NET from the Bob Devaney Sports Center.

The Huskers beat New Hampshire Friday night to win their seventh straight postseason match and improved to 28-2 on the season. Nebraska hit .352 in the match behind 13 kills from sophomore Mikaela Foecke and 12 from senior Kadie Rolfzen. The duo combined for half of Nebraska's 50 kills, while senior Andie Malloy added nine kills and junior Briana Holman chipped in seven kills in her Nebraska NCAA Tournament debut. Junior setter Kelly Hunter finished with 40 assists while adding eight digs and three kills. Defensively, senior Amber Rolfzen had four blocks, while senior libero Justine Wong-Orantes posted a match-high 14 digs.
