I know of one volleyball program happy to see Nebraska leaving for the Big Ten…Kansas. For the 87th straight time, the Huskers have taken care of the Jayhawks and this time it was quickly and efficiently in three sets with scores of 25-17, 25-14, 25-19.
The Husker offense hit a season-best .423 (50-9-97), their best performance since they hit .433 at Kansas last season on Nov. 21. Hannah Werth and Brooke Delano led the fifth ranked Huskers with Werth posting a match high 13 kills and Delano adding 12. Brook Delano, second in the nation in hitting percentage, hit .647
Lindsey Licht, Morgan Broekhuis and Tara Mueller all chipped in eight kills apiece, while Lauren Cook and Sydney Anderson combined for 46 assists. Kayla Banwarth led all players with 17 digs. Banwarth is now just two digs shy of breaking Jennifer Saleaumua’s school record of 1,568 digs which she will take care of on Saturday at Texas Tech.
