MADISON, Wis. -- The fourth-ranked Wisconsin volleyball team sent Ball State home in a hurry Saturday night as the Badgers swept the Cardinals 25-11, 25-17, 25-20 in the final round of the HotelRED Invitational at the UW Field House.
The victory followed two Wisconsin wins against Miami (Fl.) and Missouri State earlier in the tournament, awarding the Badgers the HotelRED Invitational championship and keeping them undefeated on the season at 8-0.
The Badgers served up a storm, with six different players contributing to the team’s seven aces. Wisconsin recorded 20 more kills than the Cardinals, hitting a .336 (46 kills – 10 errors – 107 attempts) attack percentage while BSU hit just .082 (26-18-97).
