Eye in the sky helps Huskers on the block
Amber Rolfzen, No. 5, and the Huskers have improved their blocking, thanks in part to a camera. Mounted on the Devaney Center scoreboard looking down at the net, it allows coaches to show the players a bird’s-eye view of the blockers’ positioning. It has helped make adjustments.
