The Michigan women's volleyball
team doesn't get chances like this very
The Wolverines face Indiana today at
Cliff Keen Arena and host Purdue
tomorrow. Both teams are a far cry from
the competition that Michigan has
played lately. The Hoosiers are 2-7 in the
Big Ten and 8-13 overall, while the
Boilermakers are 3-6 and 10-11.
"The weekend is an opportunity for us
to go out and separate ourselves from
this part of the pack," Michigan coach
Greg Giovanazzi said. "We've got to go
out there and prove that."
The Wolverines (2-6, 7-12) are cur-
rently mired in a slump. Most recently,
the Wolverines dropped a pair of match-
es at the hands of No. 15 Ohio State and
No. 7 Penn State. The Wolverines
haven't won a single game in their past
three matches, having been swept by the
Buckeyes, Nittany Lions and Ni in nesola.
Michigan's last victory came i0tur
matches ago when it upset No. II
The Wolverines hope this weekend
will put an end to their slide.
"If we have a good weekend, we can
come out ahead (of the competition),"
Giovanazzi said. "We need to come in
focused and take care of what happens
on our side of the net."
Indiana arrives in Ann Arbor having
lost six of its last seven matches. Yet, the
Hoosiers feature a talent-laden lineup,
featuring last year All-Big Ten selection
outside hitter Julie Flatley, who averages
3.72 kills per match.
"What's made them so good in the
past is the fact that they've been a very
steady, very solid team" Giovanazzi
The I loosiers are coming off a victory
over in-state rival Purdue, Michigan's
opponent tomorrow, The Boilermakers
are facing the Wolverines at the tail end
of a four-match road trip, dropping the
first three, matches.
Brook White and Lauri Grimes lead
the Purdue offense with 4.68 and 4.59
kills per match, respectively. This season
marks the first time since 1993 that the
Boilermakers have reached the double
digit mark in overall wins.
"Both teams keep the ball in play
and make us work for points,"
Giovanazzi said. "They may not get,
the kills Penn State or Ohio State gets,
but they'll do a good job of keeping
the pressure on us."
