It’s been a tough two weeks for No. 9 Wisconsin volleyball.
After a pair of hard-fought losses on the road at No. 5 Minnesota and No. 1 Penn State, Wisconsin got back to its winning wills at the Field House on Saturday, sweeping Northwestern 25-17, 25-9, 25–16.
Wisconsin’s defense was solid, holding the Wildcats to .020, including a -.235 second set. The Badgers hit .387 for the match, including a blistering .577 first set.
Wisconsin hosts a pair of home matches next weekend against Ohio State (Friday, 7 p.m.) and Maryland (Saturday, 7 p.m.).
