It has been an up and down season for Illinois volleyball. The team won the Illnii Classic tournament to start the year, but went on a four-game losing streak shortly thereafter. Following a blowout loss to Oregon, Illinois finally bounced back with a win against Belmont.

Since then, the Illini are now on a seven-game win streak with their latest victory coming against Rutgers. Freshman Jacqueline Quade and senior Naya Crittenden logged 12 kills and 11 kills respectively to lead Illinois to victory.

Illinois will face now face No.1 Nebraska at home Wednesday night. The Cornhuskers have won 27 consecutive matches dating back to last season and will look to put an end to the Illini’s win streak.

    James, I think the writing and story for this piece are on point. The natural sound is fantastic and really makes me feel like I’m at a basketball game. You do a very good job of telling a great amount in a short amount of time.

    My one major critique is that it is a little quiet. I had to turn my headphones up to hear both you and coach. I know your capable of a louder voice and there is probably some reasonable justification for this (I had bad audio in my last project) the coach is a bit of bad luck though, you can edit the audio all you want, but sometimes someone just has a quite voice. If it seems like I’m making a lot out of that I’m sorry. Only a minor annoyance in a fantastic piece.
