Kelsey Fien was named Big Ten Player of the Week, and Meghan Haggerty earned Defensive Player of the Week.
Fien had a match-high 15 kills along with four blocks against Purdue and added 11 kills against Indiana. Fien is the first Husker to be named B1G Player of the Week since Kelsey Robinson on Nov. 18 last season. The honor is the first of Fien’s career.
Haggerty tied her career high with 11 blocks, the most by a Big Ten player in three sets this season. It’s Haggerty’s second-career B1G Defensive Player of the Week honor.
The Huskers, who moved up to 11th in the national rankings, are back in action Wednesday at 7 p.m. against Michigan State.
