Panther VB returns home Friday after long road trip

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- The UNI volleyball team is sitting on a hot streak winning 9 in a row since last falling to 11th ranked Iowa State almost 3 weeks ago.

The Panthers have only played one home game in that span and return friday night to face a Southern Illinois team that hasn't lost yet this season.

"When you look at the conference standings they're first in blocks.  They're first in hitting percentage.  They're first in service aces," says UNI Head Coach Bobbi Petersen, "so they're doing a lot of things very well.  It's going to be a tough team that we're bringing in to town."

The Panthers beat the Salukis in both matches last season.  First serve Friday night is set for 7:00.
