The Cardinals cruised their way to victory, dominating both halves as they found contribution all around. Here is what stood out.
Northern Illinois was no match for the streaking Ball State, who won its fourth straight game on a 3-0 sweep.
Ball State head coach Kelli Miller Phillips said the team’s road trip against Western Michigan and Northern Illinois was going to be the toughest of the season. Coming off of a two-game winning streak at home, the Cardinals conquered part one of this challenge, beating Western Michigan in four sets, as the offense set the tone to lead the Cardinals to a 3-1 victory.
This year’s Cardinal squad is one head coach James Whitford said wants to shoot at a much higher level, and two of its freshmen lived up to those expectations in Ball State’s 87-43 victory over Defiance.
