CHAMPAIGN - The Illinois volleyball team plummeted down the rankings, dropping from 7th all the way down to 19th in the AVCA Coaches Poll after losing two matches over the weekend.

The Illini went 1-2 at the Dayton Flyer Classic.  They were swept by Dayton and Pepperdine before bouncing back for a win over Ohio.  Head coach Kevin Hambly has taken pride in scheduling tough non-conference games to get his team ready for the postseason, and he knows bad weekends are bound to happen.
