Nebraska middle blocker Lauren Stivrins was honored as the Big Ten Co-Player of the Week on Monday after leading the Huskers to a pair of road victories over the weekend.

Stivrins picked up her first-career Big Ten weekly honor after becoming the third Husker in school history to post a 1.000 hitting percentage with at least 10 kills when she went 10-for-10 in a sweep of Northwestern last Friday. She followed the next night with eight kills, four blocks and three service aces in a 3-1 win at previously unbeaten No. 7 Illinois. The sophomore from Scottsdale, Arizona averaged 2.57 kills per set on .536 hitting for the weekend.



Nebraska hosts Iowa on Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. The match will be televised on BTN, streamed at BTN2GO.com and can be heard on Husker Sports Network radio affiliates, Huskers.com and the official Huskers app.

Co-Player of the Week: Alexis Hart, Jr., MINN
Co-Player of the Week: Lauren Stivrins, So., NEB
Defensive Player of the Week: Kendall White, Jr., PSU
Setter of the Week:  Samantha Seliger- Swenson, Sr., MINN
Freshman of the Week: Serena Gray, PSU

Nebraska continues to drop a set nearly every match.   The Fr. setter had a rough S2, but the passing wasn't exactly crisp either.   Middles weren't a factor on offense.  Can't beat Minnesota this weekend with that imbalance.

If memory serves, I don't think Nebraska had dropped a set to Iowa either ever, or for at least 25 meetings.   It seems like this is the year either Iowa, Indiana, or Maryland could break into the top 8 for once.  Its been a stranglehold of N/PSU/Minn/UW/Ill/Pur/MSU/UM/tOSU for the past 6/7 years.

Big10 West is very very good in volleyball. 

Illinios lost control of Wisconsin in the second set.  When wisky went on a 13-4 run, you could just see the shift in confidence and, imo, it carried over into sets 3 and 4.   It was a good match to watch as an impartial observer.

AVCA Top 25 after this weekend.  I didn't see more than maybe two points the entire weekend, trip to Texas kept me away.   Minnesota with a big 4 set win in Lincoln.   Iowa upset Wisconsin in 5 sets.   Speculation will begin to brew around who the 4th regional host will be.   If form holds, I suspect it will likely be Pac12 Champ, B1G Champ, Texas and ???  My money is on BYU if the win out.  I'm not sure Pittsburgh will get the love if they run the table, though their RPI right now is 4, and Illinois is 3rd, Stanford 1st, BYU 2nd,  fwiw.

1 BYU (60) 1596 16-0 1
2 Stanford (4) 1539 14-1 2
3 Minnesota 1447 12-2 5
4 Texas 1406 10-3 4
5 Nebraska 1365 14-2 3
6 Pittsburgh 1209 17-0 8
7 Illinois 1158 15-2 7
8 Wisconsin 1153 11-3 6
9 Penn State 1135 13-3 9
10 Creighton 991 14-4 10
11 Florida 971 15-3 11
12 Cal Poly 885 16-1 13
13 Michigan 769 15-2 16

When I read this thread I empathize with all those girlfriends out there trying to understand football for the first time.  I played volleyball in gym class, I guess.  

Cool sport, though.  One thing I still don't follow is how players almost grab the ball over their head and toss it back up.  Aren't you supposed to hit it, not catch it?  See, told you I know nothing about it...

The art of setting.  It's a very challenging skill, not to mention avoiding 'double contact'.  You're never catching the ball, you're making a single contact on the ball with your fingers in an effort to direct the ball (usually w/o spin) to a designated location for your teammates to attack over the net, all while reading the defensive block on the other side of the net.    I refuse to even introduce it to the kids on my team (8 & 9yr olds).   Until they can pass the ball in a controlled fashion, I don't need them trying to set a volleyball.     Having a good setter though is the difference between elite and simply very good.   You're the QB of the court.

Horns lose at Kansas 3-1.  They Jayhawks are not a great team this year, but they have enough weapons to take you down if you're not playing well.  Ah well, on to the next one.

Speaking of a team w/o an elite setter.  Shook had a rough night for Texas.   Serving was lousy too.

Through today.  Nebraska had chances to take down Penn State for the 8th consecutive time, but it wasn't meant to be, and was handled in the 5th set.  Illinois avenged a home loss to UW and returned the favor in Madison on Saturday.  Michigan with Skojdt putting up big #s now in a tie for 2nd place.  Minnesota really looking good.  Great setter, fast offense,  elite Pins, impact Freshman.   btw: Final Four is in Minneapolis.  BYU and  Pitt still undefeated (will play a good Louisville team this weekend).

Lol@espnu.  At 25-25 in 4th set of KU at KSU they lost their feed.  Never came back.  Ksu won.   Rutgers was on tv tonight.  Almost took a set from Penn st.  Almost.

For those who follow this more closely, how is the NCAA tourney situation looking.  I know the Big Ten is deep year in and year out, but tied for 9th is the lowest MSU has been in some time.  I'm assuming that's right on the bubble?

Their RPI isn't good, about 80.  They need to get to 10 conference wins.  20 conf matches total.  Any ncaa bid will need 10 conf. Wins.  Schedule is home heavy as it relates to upper tier the rest of the way.   

They lost so much offense.  They do have a really good freshman.
