Senior | Middle Blocker | 6-1
The last time Nebraska was in position to win a national title, senior was on the bench due to NCAA transfer rules on her scholarship release from LSU. This year, Holman will be vital in NU’s offensive game after notching 13 kills on 25 swings against Penn State on Thursday night.
“We’ve had some great players redshirt. Briana, of course, was forced to,” coach John Cook said. “I see in those years they really grow and mature, and have a greater appreciation for the game. So because of that experience for Briana, I think she really appreciates every day, every big match, every practice.”
Against Florida early this season, Holman had just eight kills on 23 swings and ranked no. 3 on the team with a .174 hitting percentage.
