Colorado flooding tests CU's Nikki Lindow's resolve

In case you missed B.G. Brooks' phenomenal article on everything Colorado senior women's volleyball player Nikki Lindow went through during the recent flooding that affected much of the areas surrounding Boulder, check out the video below on Lindow from the Pac-12 Networks broadcast of the Buffs' game Tuesday night against Utah.

Lindow, a middle blocker whose family owns a ranch in Erie, Colo., made the difficult decision to leave the team at Denver International Airport before its scheduled flight to Waco, Texas to help her mother save the family's property. Upon making it back home, she worked tirelessly for 18 hours straight to evacuate the family-owned horses, other animals and save their crops. Immediately after that ordeal, Lindow would make the trip on her own to Texas, eventually helping the Buffs to a 3-0 sweep of Baylor. In sum, it's quite simply an inspiring story:
