Drop final three sets
Badgers fall to Kansas in home opener

The Badger Volleyball team played their home opener at the UW Fieldhouse Friday night. Wisconsin won the first two sets of the match 25-22, 25-21. Kansas stormed back to win the final three sets. 

Wisconsin had a chance for match point twice in the fifth set, at 14-13 and again at 15-14, but couldn’t convert as a KU kill, UW hitting error and Jayhawk block gave the win to Kansas. 

The loss is the first of the season for the Badgers, who drop to 6-1 on the season. 

The Badgers continue to play at the InnTowner Invitational on Saturday, facing Milwaukee at 11 a.m. and Bowling Green State at 7 p.m.
