LINCOLN — Tinkering with the lineup, and the slightly askew environment of playing at home in the NCAA tournament, didn't stop the Nebraska volleyball team from taking care of another first-round formality Friday night.
The eighth-seeded Huskers, who had 10 players seeing their first NCAA postseason action in an NU uniform, quickly found their footing to defeat Fairfield 25-15, 25-9, 25-17 at the Devaney Center.
