The UNI volleyball program will be seeking its 17th post-tournament title when the Panthers meet Illinois State in Saturday's championship match.

Northern Iowa dropped the first set but rallied to beat Wichita State in a semifinal round match Friday night at the McLeod Center.

Kayla Haneline led the Panthers with 16 kills while Leigh Pudwill produced 15 kills.

Northern Iowa lost twice during the regular season to Illinois State.

The Redbirds went a perfect 18-0 in the MVC this season and are riding a 20-match winning streak.
