Purdue Volleyball upsets #9 Florida State and advances to the Sweet 16

Juan Crespo

Purdue revenges last year's Sweet 16 loss and advances to the West Lafayette Regionals in Mackey Arena.

THAT'S THE WAY WE DO IT!

I really can't type too much. I'm honestly still shaking after what I just witnessed. After blowing a 4 point lead late in the 2nd set, coming up short in the 4th set, I was so worried to see this team go down after battling for so long.

Well Coach Shondell, you're going to put my heart through more hell next weekend in Mackey Arena. It was a riveting game that features two great teams battling it out. Purdue never hit worse than 0.133 (2nd set), and outhit FSU 0.266 to 0.169. Click here for more stats.

I may have more on this game later as I am still recovering from my near heart attack and have to go to the 8pm Christmas Show.

After this exciting performance, I think the team deserves to play in a sold out Mackey Arena. It will be a tough task to do, but I think it is possible and we can make that place LOUD. Tickets are still available and start as low as $5, and you get to watch some amazing volleyball (as it could be an All-B1G regional if Penn State, Ohio State, and Minnesota win their games tonight).

I hope to see you in Mackey Arena next week. This is an exciting time for the volleyball team. They won the two games they needed to win in order to play back home. Now they need to win two more games and they are on their way to the Final Four.

LET'S GO! BOILER UP!
