The Nebraska volleyball club will be playing without Nicklin Hames when it opens the season this Friday. 

Hames suffered an ankle injury during the Huskers’ Red-White scrimmage on Saturday.  But, coach John Cook said “nothing torn, nothing broken” when asked about Hames’ injury yesterday, adding: “The Phoenix will rise.” 

Hames and fellow senior Lexi Sun were voted to the Preseason All-Big Ten Team by the league’s coaches.  The conference also announced Monday that its coaches picked Nebraska number 2 in the preseason poll behind defending conference champion Wisconsin.

You can hear the Huskers’ second match Friday against Colgate.  First serve is at 6:30 p.m. with coverage starting at 6 on News Talk 900 KJSK.
