Lady Huskers pound Texas

The Lady Huskers proved last night why they are the #1 volleyball team in the nation as they defeated Texas handily in three sets. Sarah Pavan led the team with a .520 hitting percentage, but two other players really stood out in last night's game.

Tracy Stalls had an outstanding night hitting the ball between the Texas defensive players. In my opinion, she is one of the most underrated players on the Husker squad. And that's really not true since she's received All Big 12 and AVCA player honors, but it seems when games are broadcast, she tends to be overlooked because there are two other National Players of the Year on the team.

And sophomore setter Rachel Holloway made several amazing sets and hits of her own. She's made major improvements from last year; she seems more at ease and her play is much more consistent than it was last year.

One of the best parts of last night's broadcast on NET was when Husker coach John Cook explained the 6-2 v. 5-1 offensive schemes.
