    There was something for everyone in the Gophers sweep of Purdue, -17, -21, -23.

    Minnesota dominated the first set offensively and defensively. Purdue, appeared to be waiting for a 7 PM start. Minnesota took advantage by digging almost everything.

    The Boilers recovered some in the second set but still were troubled by the Gophers balanced attack and cross court shots. After the break, Purdue charged out to a big, I think 7 point lead only to see the Gophers get it tied. The Purdue opened a 21-17 lead before Minnesota rallied to win. (The Taylor for Seliger-Swenson swap actually worked for an important scoring run).

    Samedy had 13 kills, Hart, 11; Loman, 7; Pittman, 7; and Martin 5 (she did have 4 hitting errors).

    Cool shot of the night was Seliger-Swenson's one handed behind the head flip over the net and down for a point in the second set.

    Fun pass of the night? (I'll have to look at the replay to confirm). I think it was Rosado who's reception went off Loman's butt and then back to Rosado who knocked it over the net starting a rally which the Gophers won.

    And then there were none; Nebraska, the last undefeated B1G team, lost in Madison. The Husker's tried to reprise their five set come from behind victory over the Badger's in Lincoln; but Wisconsin overcame some fourth set shakiness to prevail.


    The Nebraska volleyball team had its undefeated start to the Big Ten Conference season come to an end with a four-set loss against No. 11 Wisconsin on Wednesday in Madison, Wisconsin.

    NU could never recover from a disastrous first two sets as its seven-match winning streak come to an end.

    Fourth-ranked Nebraska (13-4, 6-1 Big Ten) now drops back to the pack in the Big Ten standings and joins Penn State and Michigan State as teams with just one loss in league play.

    Sophomore outside hitter Madison Duello had 13 kills, and 6-foot-8 freshman middle blocker Dana Rettke added 12 kills with a .500 hitting percentage to lead the Badgers to a 25-16, 25-15, 17-25, 25-23 victory to end a three-match losing streak.

    Love all the parity this year. We are so young that I am hoping that translates into us playing loose all the way.

    And New York players....okay, in volleyball not so much. However, the Penn State/Rutgers trip is obviously less stressful than the old Penn State/Ohio State trip.

    Did I just hear this right during the broadcast? Out of 86 meetings in volleyball, Iowa has only won 11 times?! Damn.

    That's a pretty insane win rate.

    Yeah, it's quite incredible. I think I heard that at one point, the Gophers had won something like 40 in a row or something bizarre like that. Either that, or they hadn't lost to the Hawkeyes in like 20 years.

    Anyway, it was something mind-boggling along those lines.
