Pavan is NU's best ever
Pavan will become NU's first four-time first-team All-American in December, joining Stanford legend Logan Tom as the only four-timer. She could also become a two-time player of the eyar as well.
The interesting thing about Pavan is her demeanor. She's quiet, soft spoken and doesn't seek the spotlight.
But there's an intensity in her that is undeniable. That's what makes her the player she is - that and her 6-foot-5 frame. She really has the perfect volleyball body and athletic ability to go along with that competitiveness streak. Just think. Through 3 1/2 seasons with Pavan, the Huskers have lost just five matches -- Florida A&M, USC, Texas, Washington and Colorado. That surprising loss to Florida A&M early in her freshman year is Pavan's only loss in the state of Nebraska and her only loss at the NU Coliseum.
The rest of the Big 12 certainly won't be sorry to see Pavan and fellow seniors Tracy Stalls and Christina Houghtelling leave.
