    Hoosiers Host a Block Party in Hot-lanta
    The Indiana University volleyball team improved to 2-0 with a record-breaking performance Saturday morning against UAB down in Atlanta, Ga., at the Georgia Tech Marriott Classic. Indiana swatted 15.5 team blocks, setting a new mark for the most rejections in a three-set match. The Hoosiers swept UAB, 25-19, 25-13, 25-22.

    Indiana Volleyball (5-1) returns home this weekend to host the Hoosier Classic. Visiting teams include Wyoming (6-1), Tennessee State (1-2) and UAB (4-1). Indiana plays the Cowgirls at 7 p.m. ET on Friday, and hosts the Tigers at Noon and Blazers at 7 p.m. on Saturday. Live Audio will be available for all three IU matches on IUHoosiers.com.

    The Hoosiers match up with Wyoming for the first time since 1988 in a series that includes three matches, with IU holding a 2-1 advantage. The Cowgirls are led by Erin Kirby, who has 79 kills this season with a .382 hitting percentage. Wyoming's lone loss of the season was a four-setter against Cal State Bakersfield.

    Tennessee State squares off with Indiana for the first time ever. They'll have fresh legs, having taken the weekend off last week, following 1-2 weekend in the first week of the season. The Tigers are led by Naomi Wells who is averaging 4.00 kills per set and is second on the team with 32 digs on the season.

    UAB will look to avenge a 2010 loss to IU in the only ever meeting between the two schools. Kiriana Hirini leads the Blazers, as she has 57 kills and is swinging at a .455 clip this season. UAB has a three pronged attack, with Sam Skinner, Sara Rishell and Hirini all posting impressive numbers this season.

    LEADING THE CHARGE
    The captains of the 2013 IU Volleyball team, as elected by the players, are Caitlin Hansen and Jade Henderson. The team also has started a leadership council this season which includes Jordan Haverly, Melanie Hicks, Morgan Leach and Katie Gallagher.

    Henderson and Hansen will be the team's designated leaders on the court. Each of the four members of the Leadership Counsel will be the team's go-to leader for designated areas. Hicks will be in charge of Gameday Preparation, Haverly will take the lead for Academics, Leach is in charge of Treatment and Recovery, and Gallagher will spearhead Community Outreach.

    BRINGING HOME THE HARDWARE
    Head Coach Sherry Dunbar has led her Hoosiers to at least one non-conference tournament title in each of her six seasons in Bloomington, and a total of 10 tourney crowns.
