ANDY KENNEDY IN TAMPA, FLORIDA, WHERE THE HUSKERS HAVE ARRIVED FOR THE FINAL FOUR. ARRIVING AT THE TEAM HOTEL, BEING SERENADED BY A LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL MARCHING BAND. STARS LIKE HARPER, MURRAY AND BECCA, ALEC, ALONG WITH LEXI RODRIGUEZ AND THE REST OF THE BIG RED AND OF COURSE, JOHN COOK IN HIS 11TH FINAL FOUR. AND HE’S STANDING BY WITH OUR MATT FOSTER. JOHN, YOU’RE HERE IN TAMPA AS IT STARTED TO SINK IN A LITTLE BIT. TAMPA IS DOING A GREAT JOB SO FAR OF WELCOMING US AND FEELS APPRECIATED. WE GOT THE BEADS. WE SAW PIRATES, SO THEY HAD A BUNCH OF KIDS WELCOMING US AT THE AIRPORT AND SO WE STARTED TO SINK IN A LITTLE BIT. IS THIS JUST THE START OF THE RIFF RAFF THAT YOU LIKE TO TALK ABOUT? THIS IS THIS IS THE START OF IT HERE, AND IT STARTS TOMORROW MORNING, ALL DAY LONG TOMORROW. AND YOU KNOW, WE GOT TO REALIZE IT’S 48 HOURS FROM NOW. WE’RE PLAYING, YOU KNOW, THE BIGGEST MATCH OF THE YEAR. SO BUT I THINK OUR PLAYERS WILL WE’VE PREPPED THEM ENOUGH TO KNOW THERE’S A LOT GOING ON HERE. BUT WE’RE HERE TO PLAY VOLLEYBALL. GUS, HOW DO YOU KEEP THEM LOCKED IN WITH ALL THIS EXTRA CURRICULARS GOING ON? JUST KEEP TALKING TO THEM. YOU KNOW, EVENTUALLY IT IT SINKS IN, BUT AGAIN, WE’VE WE’VE FRONT LOADED A LOT BEFORE WE GOT HERE, LIKE WHAT THIS WOULD BE LIKE AND AND HAD BEEN THROUGH THIS ENOUGH BEFORE TO KNOW YOU CAN GET REALLY CAUGHT UP IN EVERYTHING GOING ON AND GET DISTRACTED BUT WE’VE GOT A GREAT HOTEL. WE’RE THE ONLY TEAM HERE. THERE’S A STARBUCKS HERE. WE’RE CLOSE TO THE ARENA, SO WE GOT A GOOD SET UP. IT’S BEEN A LONG SEASON, MAYBE TWO MATCHES LEFT. WHAT’S YOUR MATCH? WHAT’S YOUR MESSAGE TO THIS GROUP? UM, WE JUST WANT TO TRY TO PLAY OUR BEST VOLLEYBALL THIS WEEK, AND WE HAD A GREAT PRACTICE TODAY BEFORE WE LEFT. AND I THINK THEY’RE EXCITED TO PLAY, BUT THEY GOT TO GO PLAY FREE AND GO FOR IT. AND BE COURAGEOUS WHEN IT MATTERS. ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU, MATT. YOU KNOW THE FINAL FOUR. YES. IT’S VOLLEYBALL, BUT THERE’S SO MUCH MORE TO IT. THERE’S SO MANY EVENTS INVOLVED WITH THE FINAL FOUR HERE IN TAMPA. AND THE CHALLENGE IS TO STAY FOCUSED ON VOLLEYBALL. THE FINAL FOUR IS A WHOLE DIFFERENT BEAST. THERE’S FOUR, OBVIOUSLY, OF THE BEST TEAMS IN THE COUNTRY, AND THERE’S A LOT OF OUTSIDE FACTORS GOING ON THERE. AND SO I THINK THAT’S GOING TO BE THE BIGGEST THING FOR US IS JUST KIND OF LEARNING HOW TO FOCUS ON THE GAMES THAT WE HAVE TO PLAY WITH ALL OF THE RIFF RAFF GOING ON AROUND US. FIRST OF TWO SEMIFINALS ON THURSDAY. IT’S NEBRASKA AND PITTSBURGH, FOLLOWED BY WISCONSIN AND TEXAS. THE WINNERS THURSDAY PLAY FOR THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP ON SUNDAY ON ABC AND OF COURSE, IN OMAHA. YOU CAN WATCH IT RIGHT HERE ON KETV. THE HUSKERS WILL GET THEIR FIRST LOOK INSIDE AMALIE ARENA. THAT’S THE SITE OF THE FINAL FOR THE HUSKERS. WILL GET TO PRACTICE ON THAT FLOOR FOR ABOUT AN HOUR AND A HALF ON WEDNESDAY WITH MATT FOSTER AND PHOTOGRAPHER TYLE
