Badgers achieve multiple milestones, defeat Rutgers in three sets

After a statement win against Penn State Friday night, No. 4 Wisconsin (10-2 Big Ten, 18-3 overall) picked up another win Sunday afternoon, defeating Big Ten cellar-dwellar Rutgers (0-12 Big Ten, 4-11) in straight sets by a score of 25-14, 25-18, 25-23 at the UW Field House. Beyond the favorable outcome on the scoreboard, this contest turned out to be a landmark occasion for a couple of Badgers, namely senior middle Haleigh Nelson and senior setter Lauren Carlini.

The No. 4 Wisconsin Badgers (8-2 Big Ten, 16-3 overall) return home for another tough weekend of Big Ten play featuring yet another powerhouse, taking on No. 10 Penn State (9-1, 17-4) and Rutgers (0-10, 4-19).

Stifling defense, overpowering offense too much for No. 1 Badgers at home against No. 3 Minnesota

The No. 1 Wisconsin Badgers (6-1 Big Ten, 14-2 overall) faltered at home in front of a sold out crowd against No. 3 Minnesota (6-1, 14-2) for their first Big Ten loss of the season. The Badgers took an early lead in the first set 6-4 after trading points with Minnesota to start the game, but the lead was short-lived as the Gophers went on a five-point run to take a 9-6 lead.

Carlini, Badgers nearly perfect in sweep of Rutgers

Wisconsin (5-0 Big Ten, 13-1 overall) dominated from the get-go against Rutgers (0-5, 4-14) Wednesday evening to remain undefeated in the Big Ten and extend its winning streak to eight games. The Badgers started the match on fire, jumping out to a 17-5 lead in the first set, and senior Lauren Carlini scored eight straight points to lead the team to a 25-6 set win. 

The Badgers remained perfect in the Big Ten after a comeback victory over No. 14 Purdue and a sweep of Indiana. 

Young talent leads Badgers to remain undefeated in Big Ten

The Badgers (4-0 Big Ten, 12-1 overall) remained undefeated in the Big Ten after an exciting weekend that included a nail-biting win over No. 14 Purdue (11-4, 1-3) and a dominating victory against Indiana (12-5, 1-3). Wisconsin took on the Boilermakers Friday in its seventh ranked matchup of the season.

Kelli Bates knows that the Badgers can't look past Maryland, despite the big matchup with Minnesota this weekend.

Wisconsin stresses defense, serving in preparation for first conference road trip

Opening conference play with a 2-0 record for the first time since 2013, No. 3 Wisconsin (2-0 Big Ten, 10-1 overall) hopes to remain in the upper echelon of a loaded Big Ten hierarchy with road matchups against No. 14 Purdue (1-1, 11-2) and Indiana (1-1, 12-3) this weekend. In a year in which expectations for the volleyball team already appeared extraordinarily great, Wisconsin has gone on to set a seemingly impossible high standard for itself to start 2016.

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.

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.
