The sixth-ranked Wisconsin Badger women’s volleyball team capitalized on a number of Maryland errors, downing the Terrapins 25-14, 25-17 and 25-17 in front of a sold out crowd of 6,012 at the UW-Field House. It’s the Badgers’ fifth-straight Big Ten Conference victory, its longest winning streak since 2007.
Wisconsin (14-2 overall, 5-1 Big Ten) showed its consistency at the net, hitting .367 (40 kills, 11 errors, 79 attempts) as a team. Three Badgers hit better than .400, led by Courtney Thomas with .750 (9-0-12). Senior Dominique Thompson marked a .600 (6-0-10) attack percentage, followed by sophomore Haleigh Nelson, who hit .462 (8-2-13) in the balanced Badger attack.
Wisconsin hits the road on Wednesday to face Big Ten Conference travel partner Minnesota in a 6 p.m. match-up live on the Big Ten network at the Sports Pavilion in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Golden Gophers come to Madison just three days later for the rematch on Saturday at 7 p.m. in the Field House.
