The volleyball team seeks its tenth-straight victory over city-rival DePaul tonight at the Flames Athletic Center.

The Flames (5-9) have not lost to the Blue Demons (12-0) since the 2003 season.

Aubrey Sniegowski led UIC with 14 kills and the Flames won in straight sets at the Chicago Classic the last time the teams faced off on Sept. 8, 2012.

The Flames competed in Kent State’s Golden Flashes Classic over the weekend. UIC swept Binghamton but fell to Eastern Illinois and Kent State.

DePaul enters the matchup undefeated and recently won the tournament title at the SIUE Cougar Invitational. The Blue Demons have won 14 consecutive matches dating to the end of last season.

UIC head coach Katie Schumacher-Cawley and DePaul’s head coach, Nadia Edwards, played together collegiately at Penn State. Edwards and Schumacher-Cawley were members of the Nittany Lion’s national championship squad in 1999.
