LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) — Nebraska senior setter Nicklin Hames suffered an injury in the 4th and final set of the Huskers' Red-White scrimmage on Saturday. Hames had to be helped off the court & did not return in a match that ended in a 2-2 tie.

NU head coach John Cook was uncertain about the extent of Hames' injury immediately after the match.

"I'm a little bit concerned but she's also a tough kid," Cook said. "She hasn't gotten hurt in four years so that's a pretty unusual deal."

On Monday, Cook said he didn't think the injury would keep Hames out long term, but she likely would not be avaiable for the team's opening matches this weekend.
