LINCOLN — John Cook remains confident Omaha will get the Final Four, despite the change in dates for the NCAA women’s volleyball tournament.

“I’ve heard Omaha is good to go,” Cook said during a press conference over Zoom on Friday. “The NCAA has indicated they’d like to have it in Omaha.”

The NCAA tournament will now begin on April 10 with the Final Four from April 23-25. The tournament will now only have 48 teams instead of the usual 64.

However, Cook is excited with all the changes and looks forward to a spring season, something he’s been an advocate for many years. His players are also thrilled to have a plan in place.

“Now we know, here we go,” Cook said.

The Huskers will likely play a 22-match schedule, according to Cook, though nothing has been finalized and won’t be for a while. Nebraska will also only play against Big Ten teams before the postseason. The regular season can begin Jan. 22.
