Nebraska freshman libero Kenzie Knuckles was named the Big Ten Co-Defensive Player of the Week yesterday. 

Knuckles averaged five digs per set in the Huskers’ wins over Rutgers and Penn State last weekend. That included a career-high 24 digs in the five-set victory over the Nittany Lions.

NU moved up one spot to number 7 in yesterday’s AVCA poll, while Creighton remained ninth.
