Volleyball: #7 Nebraska v. Illinois

Former Husker Assistant Coach Chris Tamas returned to the Bob Devaney Sports Center on Saturday night leading his new team, the Illinois Fighting Illini against the #7 Nebraska Cornhuskers. The Huskers made the most of the reunion, beating the Illini 3-1 (25-19, 24-26, 25-20, 25-17).

Freshman Middle Blocker Lauren Stivrins got the scoring going for the Huskers, taking the first point of the match with a tip over the block on the right side. Illinois then took two of their own to go up 2-1 on the home team, but then the Huskers took over.

With Kelly Hunter serving, the Huskers attacked Illinois’ freshman libero Morgan O’Brien who was forced into service by an injury to senior Brandi Donnelly. Apparent confusion in communication by the Illini led to a 6-0 run and an 8-3 Husker lead.

Illinois chipped away at the lead, however, knocking the Nebraska advantage down to one at 12-11. The Huskers stopped the Illinois run and then scored the next two points to take a 14-11 lead and force Tamas and Illinois’ first timeout of the set.
