Huskers top PSU in five, claim semifinal win

Huskers top PSU in five, claim semifinal win

Big matches with big stakes. That game started immediately after the conclusion of the Huskers and Lions.

Banwarth, no doubt, could recall a similar match.

The win for Nebraska was their seventh consecutive over Penn State, but their first in three tries against the Nittany Lions in the NCAA semifinals. That season, the Huskers won the NCAA Tournament title.

"What Nebraska does is they have good service pressure and they're a good defensive team", Rose said. "I'm not surprised at all they fought back".

In the all-important third set, it was a tale of two halves.

Record-setting night: The NCAA put the attendance for Thursday's national semifinals at 18,374, just shy of Sprint Center's posted capacity of 18,972. The previous mark was 17,561 in Omaha, Neb., in 2015. Jazz Sweet had 12 kills on.375 hitting.

"That wasn't anything skill-related". But Foecke said her team is not the type to fold.

The Huskers hit.249 in the match, 32 points higher than Penn State.

Coming into this season, after the Huskers lost three All-Americans, there was all the more weight on Foecke.

"There are a lot of Husker fans here", he said. "You know, we could have won it 3-0". We pride ourselves on that. Husker setter and Papillion native Kelly Hunter recorded 47 assists in addition to 23 digs.

"I wouldn't say hard, I would say fun", she said. She also had a career high 19 digs.

Penn State finished with 76 digs.

"I'm not disappointed in the players or the university I work for, but I'm disappointed in the outcome of the match". The call was reversed, and instead of Nebraska taking a 21-19 lead, the match was knotted at 20. Penn State had five aces and 14 errors.

John Cook was 1-for-2 on challenges.

The fifth set was tied 6-6, Nebraska built a 9-6 lead, but Penn State pulled to 9-8 before the Huskers pulled away. Cook did not use his last challenge on the call, opting to hold it for a possible fifth set. "And Kelly's looking at me like I'm not sure. I wanted to protect it".

Two times five, sets that is, made for an absolutely incredible night of college volleyball. The last five-setter came in 2012 between Texas and MI. The Huskers took it 15-11 to advance to the finals. They would go on to win the fifth 15-11.
