Purdue controls its own destiny.
Purdue defended their home turf with a no-doubter (okay, little doubter?) against Michigan State.
A lil’ look back to earlier in the week, and a look ahead to tonight’s game @ Wisconsin
Volleyball needed every bit of five sets to add an 11th straight P to the Monon Spike; the win boosted them into a third-place tie with Penn State. Up next: Wisconsin and Minnesota on the road.
MSU ends Purdue’s four-game winning streak…time to start a new one.
Purdue was unable to maintain their mojo this week and fell to Sparty, 23-13 for their first loss in six weeks. All is not lost for the 4-4 Boilermakers.
Who else is excited about the trip to MSU?
Purdue has to spool it up again and play an angry and formidable Spartans team in East Lansing this weekend.
VB split for the third straight week, falling in straight sets at #12 Michigan before topping MSU in four. The Boilers face 8th-ranked Penn State in Holloway and #24 Iowa in Iowa City this week.
I was very wrong to think Purdue should strive to be anything like Michigan State.
After a Senior Night upset of MSU, volleyball is headed to Salt Lake City to face High Point Thursday at 6:30 PM in first-round NCAA action; a win will almost certainly have them facing 11-seed Utah Saturday at 9 PM.
Despite midseason predictions to the contrary, the Big Tenteen sent a normal-sized group of teams to the Big Dance. Here's our guide for whom to watch (when the Good Guys aren't on, of course), when and why.

Purdue volleyball sent off lone senior Faye Adelaja in style Saturday for Senior Night, knocking off Iowa in four sets after being swept at MSU on Wednesday. The Boilers are 6-10 in conference play and 16-11 overall, heading to Indiana and Penn State this week as part of a season-ending road trip.
Purdue volleyball continued their trend of splitting weekend matches, dropping #13 Michigan in four sets before losing to #15 Michigan State in four. The Boilers remain tied for 10th in conference play with Indiana, and they'll face Maryland Wednesday in Holloway before traveling to Wisconsin for a Saturday match.
In the Big 14 semifinals on Saturday, Maryland and Michigan State advanced with ease, setting up a rematch almost exactly a month after their first meeting, won by Maryland 85-76 in College Park. Northwestern's Cinderella run ended after three wins; they and Ohio State are left to wait for the WNIT and NCAA tournament, respectively.
Day 3 of conference tournament play featured one surprise, as Northwestern won their third game in three days without leading scorer Maggie Lyon, and one close finish, as a potential game-tying three from April Wilson was off the mark and a Bree Horrocks putback left the Boilers one point short in a 65-64 loss to Michigan State.
On the first full day of tournament action in Indianapolis, three out of four higher-seed teams fell; only 6-seed Purdue advanced, knocking off 11-seed Penn State 70-59 behind 22 points from April Wilson.
Rapheal Davis scored 17 of his career-high-tying 24 in the first half and hit the winning free throw with 5 seconds left in OT, lifting Purdue to a thrilling 82-81 win over Michigan State in Mackey Tuesday evening.
