NCAA volleyball rankings: NCAA reporter includes 4 B1G teams on her preseason top 10 list for 2022
NCAA volleyball rankings for the 2022 preseason are beginning to trickle out. Once again, the B1G is well-represented on the top 10 heading into the season.
During the 2021 season, it was an All-B1G national championship showdown between Nebraska and Wisconsin. In a thrilling 5-set match, the Badgers came out on top for the first national championship in program history.
On Tuesday, Michella Chester with NCAA Digital released her preseason top 10 for the season. At the top, Chester went with Nebraska after the bitter defeat of last year.
Chester sees “a stacked core” returning for the Huskers after last season’s run to the championship game. Wisconsin – the 2nd B1G team on Chester’s list – checked in at No. 4. According to Chester, the Badgers still have a tough team but must replace some big holes for 2022.
Here are the 4 teams that appeared on Chester’s list:
- 1. Nebraska
- 4. Wisconsin
- 5. Ohio State
- 7. Minnesota
