Ehman’s B1G Volleyball Thursday: Iowa’s Courtney Buzzerio

At 6-foot-5, Iowa senior Courtney Buzzerio is certainly the tallest setter in the Big Ten, but the product of Chino Hills, California, also plays right side for the Hawkeyes.

Buzzerio, a Big-Ten first-teamer last spring, joined us to discuss how she balances having multiple roles, what influence playing alongside her sister Megan had on her, the importance of non-conference play for Iowa heading into Big Ten season, and, of course, her favorite places to eat in Iowa City.


We are interviewing one player from each of the 14 Big Ten programs before the start of the season. Previously on B1G Volleyball Thursday, we have talked to, in order:

Ohio State’s Emily Londot,
Purdue’s Taylor Trammell, 
Wisconsin’s Dana Rettke, 
Penn State’s Gabby Blossom,
Northwestern’s Temi Thomas-Ailara,

Indiana’s Brooke Westbeld,
Michigan’s Jess Mruzik,
Maryland’s Rainelle Jones,
Nebraska’s Nicklin Hames,
Michigan State’s Naya Gros.
Illinois’ Megan Cooney.
