The Nebraska football team is known for awarding black shirts to its starters on defense. The volleyball team stayed with the “black” theme in a new video that revealed the design of the new volleyball court in Lincoln.
The Cornhuskers new court has a black baseline that surrounds the entire playing surface. Fans can get their first look at the court in the video, which also pays tribute to Nebraska volleyball’s suffocating defense:

As the video indicates, Nebraska has posted a cumulative opponent hitting percentage lower than .155, which is the best in Division I volleyball.
Cornhuskers volleyball will play on the new court for the first time Friday when they host High Point.
