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. The Big Ten title appears to be undecided until the conference’s final weekend and barring shocking upsets, which have been prevalent this season, November 30 should be the long-awaited matchup volleyball fans have been clamoring for. But with Penn State and Nebraska, the Big Ten’s top teams, not meeting for another week-and-a-half, it’s time to look at the postseason hopes for the rest of the league’s members. It would seem safe to put the eight

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

Volleyball Report: It's time for midseason awards!

Through 10 matches of the Big Ten season, the nation’s deepest and most decorated conference has lived up to its billing. Upsets have been plentiful, top 15 matchups are the norm and contenders have emerged from the pack. The standings have rarely looked the same on any given week, and early-season surprises have struggled to endure the grind of the league. With five weeks remaining before the postseason, here are the early contenders to take home the Big Ten hardware come December. Midseason Player of the Year: Kelsey Robinson, OH (NEB) It’s hard to argue against Robinson at this point

Volleyball Report: Spartans continue strong start

A week ago, the Big Ten witnessed an unprecedented five out of six matches reach five sets in one night. The plethora of extended matches indicated the strength of the conference but still seemed rare enough to not be duplicated in the short term. Flash-forward to last Friday, and the count had reached nine of the last 11 matches, and seemed likely to be pushed to 10 of 12. Purdue’s fourth-set comeback against Illinois halted another night where all but one match went the distance, but it reiterated the evaporation of a talent gap in the league. Out of 36

Volleyball Report: Buckle up for wild Big Ten season

Conversations with Big Ten coaches have had one common theme heading into the start of conference play: No one has any idea where his/her team, or any of their fellow members, will end up in the title race come the end of November. The Big Ten has been the strongest conference in the nation over the past few seasons, but in a year that has witnessed the league set a new NCAA record for teams in the Top 25 (9), the Big Ten’s coaches are hesitant to make any predictions. Two Final Four teams entered 2013 with the majority of
