Nebraska’s volleyball club is finally set to open its pandemic-delayed season a week from tomorrow. 

Huskers coach John Cook said at a news conference yesterday his team has been practicing for 12 days after having two weeks off for the holidays.  He said with all the breaks and interruptions it has been a slower process building a team. 

But, he credited NU’s senior leadership for how they’ve handled the long offseason.  “This group has done a really, really good job,” Cook said. “And again I’m going to give our captains and seniors a ton of credit for holding it all together.” 

The fifth-ranked Huskers are set to open their 22-match, 11-week season with a pair of matches at Indiana next Friday and Saturday.  First serve times are still TBA.
