She nearly had a triple-double in the season opener against Florida, posting 47 assists, 13 digs and seven kills. She followed with 40 assists, a team-high four blocks and three kills in a sweep of the Longhorns. The Papillion-La Vista South grad led the Huskers to a .349 hitting percentage for the weekend.
