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.
