Its only fitting that a player named Jazz Sweet is in the Sweet 16. Nebraska's sophomore outside hitter had a productive opening weekend in the NCAA Tournament. Sweet totaled 12 kills in the Huskers' sweeps over Hofstra and Missouri.
The victories improve Sweet's NCAA Tournament record to 6-0. She's never experienced a post-season loss at Nebraska. Further, she hasn't lost this late in the season since 2015. Sweet was on a State Championship team at Shawnee Heights (KS) as a high school senior.
Sweet is averaging more than 2.00 kills-per-set this season for the Huskers. Nebraska plays Kentucky in the Sweet 16 on Friday at 1:00 p.m.
