LINCOLN — The nerves Kadie Rolfzen felt in her first collegiate start made a forceful kinetic transition into the volleyball Friday night at the start of Nebraska's first official match at the renovated Devaney Center.
There were some more jittery moments throughout the Huskers' debut in their new home — and with a new lineup — but the freshman outside hitter's 14 kills helped No. 13 Nebraska eventually gather its poise to finish off Villanova 25-14, 25-13, 20-25, 25-20.
