Volleyball up to No. 20

The Illini volleyball team, which swept a pair of Big Ten matches last weekend, moved up five spots to No. 20 in the AVCA Top 25 poll. The latest weekly rankings were announced Monday.

Illinois defeated Indiana and then-No. 18 Purdue in three sets apiece to improve to 14-12, including 10-6 in the conference.

The current ranking is the Illini’s highest since they were No. 16 during the week of Sept. 16-22.
