Bekka Allick, Nebraska’s freshman middle blocker was named B1G Freshman of the Week. She averaged 2.5 kills and 1.33 kills over the weekend. She hit .481 with 15 kills on 27 hits. On Sunday versus Northwestern she had 9 kills and hit .571.

She definitely doesn’t look like a freshman when she plays. She has a powerful hit, a strong block, and a whole lot of confidence.

Sidenote: This is not Bekka Allick related or Husker related, but do you know what plants are poisonous for dogs? We are surprising my kids on Friday with a puppy and I am now fearful that all of my house plants will kill him. I’ve seen them on lists. My biggest concern are the huge rubber tree plant and the equally large peace lily. What do I even do with them? Any dog/plant advice would be greatly appreciated.
