Can we call this a rivalry anymore?
We thought the men’s basketball team had a streak.
Look no further than Coach Shondell and his Volleyball team, Indiana University has not beat Purdue since October 12th, 2012.

The Purdue Volleyball team swept the Hoosiers clean, 3-0 this match and 3-0 last match, extending our dominance over that school down south.
For the 13th consecutive year, the “Monon Spike” will stay in West Lafayette. Purdue won all 3 sets on Sunday, 25-18, 25-11 and 25-16.
“Set 1 | 25-18After holding a consistent five-point lead, Indiana came within two points 15-13, then again at 16-14, Purdue. Grace Cleveland recorded a kill and block assist with Jael Johnson to help swing momentum back to Purdue and the Boilermakers never looked back.
Cleveland led the team with five kills in the set, while Newton recorded one solo block.
Set 2 | 25-11The Boilermakers avoided every Indiana block on their way to hitting a .406 % in the set. Newton recorded a team-leading seven kills with just one error in the set while Hornung paced the back row with eight digs.
Set 3 | 25-16Four Boilermakers went errorless in the set: Johnson (four kills), Chinn (three kills), Cleveland (three kills) and Taylor Trammell (two kills). Chinn’s final kill of the night marked her 100th career kill.”
Next up at Penn State this weekend, which will be much tougher than the 2 matches against Indiana.
