Volleyball falls to Purdue in straight sets

The IU volleyball team was unable to capture the Monon Spike or a win against Purdue in 2010.

The Hoosiers (19-8, 7-8) fell Wednesday to their in-state rivals in straight sets by scores of 29-27, 25-23 and 25-18.

It was the third straight season that the Boilermakers (17-9, 8-7) claimed the Monon Spike, which is the volleyball equivalent to football’s Old Oaken Bucket and is awarded in the second of the two annual meetings between the schools.

IU had just two set points in the match — both coming in an extended first set.

Neither squad hit with remarkable efficiency; Purdue combined for a .173 clip while IU hit at a .129 mark. However, the Boilermakers had a stronger evening on defense, earning 68 digs to the Hoosiers’ 50.

Purdue’s Tiffany Fisher led all players with 12 kills.
