The No. 4 seeded Wisconsin Badgers beat the UCLA Bruins in straight sets, 25-18, 25-21, 25-14, on Saturday night at the Field House in Madison. With the win, the Badgers move on to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament and the Bruins can, well, go do whatever the hell they want I suppose.

The Badgers have now played six sets in the NCAA Tournament and won all six of those sets. Speaking of impressive feats, Molly Haggerty recorded her 1,000th kill during the first set of this match and then, in obvious fashion, she closed things out with the match winning kill.

With that last kill, @haggerty_molly has reached 1,000 for her career!
Many more to come... Congratulations, Molly! pic.twitter.com/DVv9okvbDG
Haggerty led the team with 14 kills and Dana Rettke added 10. Sydney Hilley had 38 assists and I’m really having trouble focusing on writing this post because the Badgers are beating Ohio State in the B1G Title game. I’m really happy for the volleyball team but I need to go back to drinking beer and being nervous that Ohio State is going to do something awesome and I’ll be upset.
Tiffany Clark led the team with eight digs while Madison Duello and Danielle Hart each had seven blocks.
