No. 3 Minnesota sweeps No. 1 Wisconsin

  Minnesota handed Wisconsin its first Big Ten loss of the season.

The No. 3 Minnesota volleyball team swept No. 1 Wisconsin on Wednesday 25-20, 25-18, 25-14 in Madison, Wisconsin. With the win, the Golden Gophers improve to 14-2 overall and 6-1 in the Big Ten. 

Wisconsin was handed its first loss of the Big Ten season, and are 14-2 overall and 6-1 in league action. Minnesota snapped a nine-match Badger win streak. It was also the first Big Ten loss for the Badgers since the 2015 Golden Gophers defeated them on Oct. 17, 2015, which snapped Wisconsin's 18-match Big Ten win streak. 

As a team, the Gophers hit .323, while they limited Wisconsin to just .050, a season low. The Gophers had just 13 errors in 99 attempts to Wisconsin's 27 errors in 101 attempts. Minnesota had 14 team blocks to the Badgers' three. That 14-block mark was the fourth-highest for the team this season and the most blocks for the Gophers in three-set fashion. 

Minnesota was led by Sarah Wilhite with 12 kills and eight digs. Hannah Tapp and Paige Tapp both added five blocks, with H. Tapp establishing 11 kills (hit .429) and P. Tapp with nine (hit .438). Molly Lohman hit .625, adding a season-best nine blocks. Alexis Hart had seven kills and two blocks. Dalianliz Rosado had 11 digs, while Samantha Seliger-Swenson had five and established 41 assists, five digs and two blocks.
