Volleyball looks to rebound from Purdue loss

After IU volleyball (12-1, 0-1) suffered its first loss this season Wednesday, it must quickly rebound to face Northwestern two days later.

The Wildcats (10-1) received 12 votes in the latest national coaches poll.

The two that lead Northwestern’s team are senior middle blocker Sabel Moffett with 121 kills and freshman outside hitter Stephanie Holthus with 102 kills.

The Wildcats’ biggest win this season came against then-No. 14 Tennessee on Sept. 10.
IU coach Sherry Dunbar  said she believes the Hoosiers can match up against Northwestern.

“I think when you play at Northwestern, it’s not that home court advantage that plays into effect,” Dunbar said.

Stopping the Wildcats offensive attack may be key as the team struggled to slow Purdue in its four-set loss Wednesday.

Sophomore middle blocker Samantha Thrower talked about consistency for the Hoosiers.
“We are just going to need to get our stuff together and go play by play in the game,” Thrower said.

Dunbar explained what is important for the road victory.

“It’s about us generating that energy and intensity to stay focused on our game plan,” Dunbar said.
