Gordon nearly posted a double-double against Wisconsin as she finished with 19 kills and 9 digs, while hitting .375 against the Badgers.
With 30 kills against Northwestern and 19 versus Wisconsin, Gordon extended her consecutive double-figure kill streak to 102 matches. On the weekend, she averaged 7.0 kills and 5.14 digs per game in the two matches while hitting .398.
