Nebraska Libero Lexi Rodriguez was named the BIG Freshman of the Week. This is her fourth time receiving the award this year. That is the most of any Nebraska Freshman. This is coming off an intense week in which she averaged 5.13 digs per set last week as Nebraska played Wisconsin and Purdue. She had 13 digs against Wisconsin and tied her career high of 28 digs against Purdue.

Rodriguez has also been named BIG Defensive Play of the Week twice this season. She is a big part of that amazing Husker defense that powers this team.
