The No. 7-ranked Gophers volleyball team swept Indiana 25-11, 25-10, 25-11 on Friday night in its Big Ten opener at Maturi Pavilion.

Adanna Rollins had 11 kills and Alexis Hart 10 to lead Minnesota (7-2) to its sixth consecutive win.

"It's some of the best volleyball we've played all year," coach Hugh McCutcheon said.

The Gophers hit .444, making only six errors. The Hoosiers (11-3), who had a seven-match winning streak broken, hit .011.

Blocking also was one-sided. The Gophers had 15 blocks, led by Taylor Morgan with two solo and nine assisted blocks, to Indiana's two total as a team.

First-year setter Kylie Miller, a transfer from UCLA, continued her strong play for Minnesota with 32 assists. She came into the match averaging 12.08 per set — an NCAA best.
