The Nebraska volleyball team is headed back to the Final Four for the second consecutive year after sweeping the No. 7 seeded Washington 3-0 in the Lincoln Regional Final of the NCAA Tournament. 

The Huskers held Washington to just 26 points in the first two sets. The win marked Nebraska's 10th consecutive postseason win as the Huskers head back to the Final Four for the 13th time in program history.

Nebraska hit .437 in the match against the Huskies. Andie Malloy led the Huskers with 15 kills, while Kadie Rolfzen added 10 kills and seven digs.

Nebraska's Kadie Rolfzen was named the Most Outstanding Player of the Lincoln Regional. Rolfzen, Malloy and Kelly Hunter were named to the NCAA Lincoln All-Regional team. 

Up next, the Huskers face off against the winner of Texas and in-state foe Creighton in Columbus, Ohio Thursday. Texas and Creighton is set for 7 p.m. Saturday.
