UNI Volleyball Takes 20 Match Win Streak Into Conference Tilts This Weekend.

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa-- The University of Northern Iowa volleyball team will look to remain perfect in Missouri Valley Conference play when it hosts Illinois State and Indiana State in the McLeod Center on Friday and Saturday. The Panthers enter the weekend protecting a two-match lead in the Missouri Valley Conference standings.

The Panthers enter the week on an 20-match win streak, the longest win streak for UNI since winning 21 straight during the 2001 season.

UNI's 12-0 start to Missouri Valley Conference action is its best start since the 2000 team went a perfect 18-0 through league play.

At 22-2, UNI is tied for the fourth-highest win-loss percentage among NCAA Division I teams.

The Panthers are listed at a tie for No. 25 in the Nov. 2 AVCA Division I Top 25 poll. This is the first time the Panthers have appeared in the poll since the 2004 team was picked No. 21 in the preseason poll. This is UNI's first appearance in the top 25 during the season since the 2003 team was named No. 18 in the final 2003 poll.
