After an impressive win against Ohio State Friday night, No. 3 Wisconsin (2-0 Big Ten, 9-1 overall) continued its remarkable run of dominance Saturday, trampling the Maryland Terrapins (0-2, 8-6) in three sets—25-12, 25-18, 25-21—to improve to 2-0 in the first weekend of Big Ten play. Despite playing the part of the underdog, Maryland took the floor with great energy and a distinct air of confidence.

No. 3 Wisconsin (9-1) extended its conference winning streak to 13 consecutive matches with a resounding three-set victory (25-16, 25-19, 25-17) over No. 17 Ohio State (10-2) in the 2016 Big Ten Opener at the UW Field House. In the first set, the Badgers took advantage of sloppy execution on the part of their opponents, as Ohio State fell victim to nine violations that instantly put them at a disadvantage.
