Husker Volleyball Wins Three Matches at KSU

The Nebraska volleyball team improved to 5-0 in spring exhibition matches with three victories at the Kansas State Invitational Saturday afternoon. The Huskers defeated two teams that ended the 2004 season ranked in the USA Today/AVCA Coaches poll, beating Kansas State, 30-27, 30-25, and Colorado State, 30-9, 30-24. NU also defeated Wichita State, 30-26, 30-28.

No statistics were kept in the tournament, but Nebraska Coach John Cook said the competition still served as a good measuring stick for the Huskers.

"It was a great competition, and all of the teams were solid," Cook said. "We have some things to work on, but I thought we served well and played good defense. Offensively, we were pretty balanced, and it was a great team effort."

Nebraska continues its spring exhibition schedule Saturday, April 17, when it faces Minnesota at 7 p.m. at the NU Coliseum. The Huskers' match against the Gophers is their only home date of the spring. Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling the ticket office at 1-800-8-BIGRED
