Right after sweeping Purdue, the Badgers are ready to hit the road. No. 1 Wisconsin

Right after sweeping Purdue, the Badgers are ready to hit the road. No. 1 Wisconsin (2-) will vacation to Urbana-Champaign to get on Illinois (2-) this weekend in their initially away matches of the season. 

Past weekend, the Badgers swept No. 13 Purdue (3-) two nights in a row. Illinois beat the University of Iowa 3-1 in each of their matches above the weekend. Both Illinois and Iowa were unranked in preseason polling from the AVCA. 

Final weekend, the Illini had a hitting proportion of .211 in comparison to the Badger’s .387. The Illini averaged 13 kills for every set around the weekend to the Badger’s 14.83. 

The distinctive structure of this season’s program indicates that the Badgers will encounter the Illini in back-to-back matches this weekend with the capacity to review match film in between just about every a person. 

Illinois averaged 3.3 blocks for every established above the weekend to the Badger’s 2.3, but blocking is some thing we observed the Badgers boost on in their next match previous weekend, with 10 blocks in their 2nd match by itself. We can be expecting the Badgers to go on their blocking momentum from the Illini if this is anything they’ve continued to concentration on in apply. 

The Badgers gave up seven support mistakes in their to start with match against Purdue and 9 in their second. They will have to have to continue to be out of their individual way this weekend and stay away from services errors in this matchup to go on their untroubled winning streak. 

The Illini produced 21 assistance glitches past weekend and 49 others. Aside from the Badger’s 16 services errors, they only built 14 other problems. 

Outdoors hitter/reverse Megan Cooney is a standout player for the Illini. The senior has put away an outstanding 30 kills so significantly this year, far more than any of the Badgers, and had 6 aces previous weekend as effectively. She goes into this weekend with a .269 hitting share. 

Outdoors hitter/middle blocker Ellie Holzman is one more player to search out for in this matchup. The redshirt freshman manufactured her collegiate debut final weekend, putting away 27 kills and has a hitting proportion of .258. 

Middle blocker for the Illini Rylee Hinton was named the Big 10 Defensive Participant of the week last 7 days, placing up 16 blocks in their matches from the Hawkeyes.
