WATCH: John Cook, Lauren Stivrins Talk NCAA Tournament for Huskers

April 13, 2021

Nebraska has arrived in Omaha for the NCAA Volleyball Tournament. The Huskers play Thursday, so they’re mostly just spending time at the hotel in preparation for the event.

“We’re hanging out,” Coach John Cook said during media availability on Tuesday.

While Nebraska hasn’t left the hotel yet, word has gotten around that the setup at the convention center is less than ideal. Middle blocker Lauren Stivrins said she’s heard it’s “still a pretty rough setup for a championship event,” but added that the Huskers are focusing on what they can control.

“I’m grateful that our team is even in the tournament,” Stivrins said. “I think we need to focus on that and focus on our team and not really what’s going on outside of all of that, because it’s completely out of our control.”
