      Wisconsin and Penn State win in the NCAA volleyball semifinals

      Ellen Chapman had 17 kills, Deme Morales added 14 - including the final two points - and 12th-seeded Wisconsin upset top-seeded defending national champion Texas 3-1 in the NCAA volleyball semifinals Thursday night. Wisconsin (28-9) took control early and held off the Longhorns 25-19, 25-18, 26-28, 25-23. Texas (27-3), trying to become the sixth school to win consecutive national titles, had won 23 straight matches since losing to Arizona State in early September. Wisconsin will play No. 2 Penn State in the championship match Saturday night. Penn State beat No. 3 Washington 3-0 in the second semifinal. The Badgers are the lowest seeded team to reach the championship.

      The previous lowest was Stanford at No. 11 in 2004.
