Kansas volleyball has taken its spot as one of the nation’s elite during the last several years and the numbers prove it: since the start of the 2015 season, no other team in the nation has a better winning percentage.
Not Texas. Not Nebraska. Not Stanford. Not Penn State. KANSAS.
The seventh-ranked Jayhawks enter this weekend’s Kansas Invitational with a 64-6 record since 2015 – good for a 91.4 winning percentage. Not only does Kansas have the highest winning percentage during that period, the Crimson and Blue is the only program in the nation with a three-year winning percentage of 90 percent or better.
Kansas will be put to the test this week as three top-20 teams come knocking on the doors of Horejsi Family Athletics Center, where Kansas is 29-2 since 2015.
The Jayhawks passed the first test with a three-set sweep of No. 13 Kentucky on Monday. Next up, the Kansas Invitational will feature Ohio Valley Conference preseason favorite Belmont, No. 17 Purdue and No. 9 Creighton.
Even with the most flawless winning percentage in the country since 2015, KU will still have a chance at redemption against the Boilermakers and Bluejays. The pair of teams account for two of the Jayhawks’ six losses since 2015, including an early exit from the 2016 NCAA Tournament at the hands of Creighton
