No 5 Wisconsin rolls

  Wisconsin's win extends its Big Ten winning streak to six with victory against Minnesota.

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- It was a Border Battle that wouldn’t disappoint, as No. 5 Wisconsin swept No. 23 Minnesota Wednesday night following a third-set nail-biter at the Sports Pavilion.       

The 25-16, 25-19, 30-28 victory marks the first time the Badgers (15-2, 6-1) have won at Minnesota (13-5, 3-4) since 2007. The victory also extends Wisconsin’s Big Ten winning streak to six.

Senior Ellen Chapman led the Badger offense with 12 kills, tallying double-figure kills for the 10th time this season. Freshman Kelli Bates and senior Courtney Thomas followed suit, recording 10 and nine kills, respectively. Wisconsin hit .279 (47 kills, 13 errors, 122 attempts) on the night, while the Gophers hit .103 (38-23-145).

Sophomore Lauren Carlini put up 34 assists and 18 digs in the match, recording her 11th double-double of the season to lead both the team and the Big Ten.
