Former Huskers Jordan Larson and Justine Wong-Orantes helped turn an Olympic showdown between the top two women’s volleyball teams in the world into a one-sided affair.
The United States women moved to 2-0 in pool play at the Tokyo Games last night with a sweep of defending gold medalist China. The scores were 29-27, 25-22, 25-21. Larson had 11 kills and eight digs, ranking third on the American squad in each category. Wong-Orantes led Team USA with a match-high 16 digs.
The U.S. next plays Turkey on Thursday.
