After Huge Match Against Penn St, Briana Holman Sits Against Rutgers

Nebraska senior middle blocker Briana Holman sat out Nebraska’s Saturday win against Rutgers, which didn’t hinder the Huskers from winning 3-0 (25-15, 25-20, 25-11) on Saturday night in New Brunswick.

Holman left the Huskers’ game last weekend against Nebraska-Omaha with what was termed a left ankle sprain, and head coach John Cook was uncertain about how long she’d be out all weekend. It turned out, she was able to go on Friday in a mega-match against Penn State, and played masterfully – she had 10 kills in her first 11 swings, and wound up with 13 kills on 16 swings and just one error (.750 hitting percentage) in that game.

In her stead on Saturday, freshman Chesney McClellan got her first career start and had 7 kills and 3 blocks.

Holman did practice some last week, and there has been no update on her long-term status.

Nebraska has a tough upcoming run that won’t be as forgiving as 5-9 Rutgers. Next weekend, the Huskers will play Minnesota and Wisconsin at home, and the week after that they have Michigan State and Iowa.
