AMES (ISU) — The No. 18 Iowa State volleyball team (21-7, 13-3 Big 12) moved on the second round of the NCAA tournament with a five-set win (25-11, 23-25, 22-25, 25-13, 15-7) over IPFW (25-7, 12-4 Summit League) on Thursday night in Hilton Coliseum. The win is the Cyclones’ 11th-straight, tying a program record.
