Volleyball Report: B1G is best of the best

Coaches, players and fans can all agree that the Big Ten represents the best caliber of volleyball in all the nation. The conference proved that on Sunday, as an unprecedented seven teams reached regional play, setting a new NCAA record. Big Ten teams make up nearly half of the field remaining in the tournament, as the Sweet 16 features all but one league team that made the postseason. With both Nebraska and Illinois hosting regionals this weekend and two different sites featuring three of four remaining teams out of the Big Ten, a Final Four littered with Big Ten teams

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: Five-setter here, five-setter there

“The margin for error in our conference is as thin as it has ever been.” Michigan head coach Mark Rosen made that statement heading into last Saturday night, a night that may have represented a first in Big Ten women’s volleyball. All 12 teams were in action, and at the end of the evening, all but two would play nerve-racking 5-set matches. Five-setters in a conference as strong as the Big Ten have been commonplace over the league’s history, but for one day to feature nearly every team in a race to 15 points, it could mark the beginning of
