Lexi Sun finished with a match-high 10 kills on .308 hitting and added four blocks, four digs and two aces. The fifth-year senior from Encinitas, Calif., surpassed 1,000 kills as a Husker, becoming the 23rd player in program history and the ninth in the rally-scoring era to reach the milestone.

Nebraska concludes the Husker Invitational on Saturday against Kansas State, with first serve set for 3 p.m.
