Go Big Red!
Behind dominating performances from its middle blockers, the top-ranked Nebraska volleyball team claimed the 2007 AVCA Showcase crown with a 30-23, 22-30, 30-18, 30-21 victory over fifth-ranked UCLA in front of an event record-crowd of 11,076 at the Qwest Center.
I was one of the 11,076 and it was a great evening of college volleyball! The match between Utah and Tennessee that preceded the Nebraska-UCLA match was a nail biter, too. I was wiped out by the time we got home just after midnight -- but with no regrets!
And here's one of the things I love about the athletic program at the University of Nebraska: the athletes are STUDENTS. One of these women -- (#9 Sarah Pavan -- a 6'5" senior from Canada) is carrying a 4.0 in microbiology.
