Illini volleyball set open season with home-and-home with Vols


VOLLEYBALL TEAM IS GETTING SET TO OPEN ITS SEASON TOMORROW NIGHT. THE ILLINI ARE CURRENTLY IN KNOXVILLE — WHERE THEY’LL TIP OFF THE 2019 CAMPAIGN AGAINST THE VOLS. EXPECATATIONS ARE CERTAINLY HIGH COMING OFF A FUN TO THE FINAL FOUR. AND THE ILLINI WILL HAVE A GOOD IDEA OF WHERE THEY STAND AFTER THIS WEEKEND. ILLINOIS IS RANKED SIXTH IN THE COUNTRY — TENNESSEE IS 19TH — IT’S JUST ONE OF NINE GAMES AGAINST TEAMS IN THE TOP 25 FOR ILLINOIS THIS SEASON. CHRIS TAMAS: “Everyone has dreams of national titles, and going undefeated and stuff like that, but the reality is that’s not how our game goes, there’s lots of good teams in our conference, and we’re just looking to improve, and that’s really been the goal since I’ve been here– just one day at a time.” MORGAN O’BRIEN: “Going into this year, we just know we need to go in with that same hard work and focus, and come into the gym every day and that’s our one way to get back there is if we do our best every single day.” ILLINOIS AND TENNESSEE TOMORROW NIGHT AT SEVEN. THE SAME TWO TEAMS WILL PLAY IN CHAMPAIGN ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON. ((BRET)) IT’S A FUN TIME OF YEAR WITH SO MANY SPORTS STARTING THEIR SEASON. COLLEGE
