Purdue graduate Annie Drews scored a match-high 22 points in leading the United States women’s national team to a 23-25, 25-16, 25-15, 25-21 victory against Serbia on Tuesday in Conegliano, Italy, to remain undefeated in FIVB Volleyball Nations League competition.
The U.S., now 4-0 in the VNL, plays again on Wednesday against host Italy. Serbia, the reigning FIVB World Champions and ranked No. 1 in the world, is now 2-2 after the first four matches.
None of the three former Huskers on the Team USA roster for the six-week tournament — Jordan Larson, Kelsey Robinson and Mikaela Foecke — are on the active roster this week, but should be when the tournament comes to Lincoln for three matches next week.
