Volleyball Report: B1G poised to make noise in NCAA

Volleyball Report: Illinois surging at right time

Two weeks remain in the regular season. Arms are tired, players are sick, teams know each other’s tendencies, and the tournament is on the horizon.

Volleyball Report: Penn State taking charge

Unpredictable has been the word most commonly uttered to describe this year’s Big Ten women’s volleyball season. Until the past few weeks, there was a genuine sentiment that any team had a chance to pull off a win, regardless of the matchup. However, as so often has been the case in this conference over the past decade, Penn State has asserted itself and begun to separate from the rest of the pack. At 11-1, the Nittany Lions are one match ahead of Nebraska in the Big Ten standings, yet the gap between Penn State and the rest of the conference

With five weeks remaining before the postseason, here are the early contenders to take home the Big Ten hardware come December.
