Cook would like new volleyball arena
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ Nebraska coach John Cook says he believes
his popular volleyball program could offer twice as many tickets as
it does now and still sell out.
Cook said Wednesday if he had his way, the school would build a
7,000- or 8,000-seat arena to replace the 4,000-seat Nebraska
The athletic department is now surveying fans about what they
would want in a volleyball venue.
Cook said he could see the Devaney Center being retro-fitted for
volleyball once Nebraska begins playing basketball in the new
downtown Lincoln arena in 2013.
Cook said there is a “pent-up demand'' for volleyball tickets
and that the program needs to grow its fan base. The team has sold
out 135 straight matches at the Coliseum.
