Illinois alongside three others earned avery strong installation from the part of the NCAA.
That is aftermath of the NCAA having installed BYU, Stanford, Minnesota and Illinois as fantastic four in an early reveal.
Meanwhile, Ali Bastianelli and Illinois have held the fourth position in the NCAA Division I Women’s Volleyball Committee’s top-10 reveal.
BYU were actually the recipient of a vote of confidence and that was the case earlier on Sunday night.
That was when the NCAA volleyball committee revealed its top 10 teams depending on matches they played until October 31.
The unbeaten Cougars had the trio of Stanford, Minnesota and Illinois as its immediate followers.
On the other hand, though, the top four teams will host the regional play, so those are all coveted spots.
But as it stands, the top 16 seeds are in line to play host in the first and second rounds.
Texas shockingly fail to make top 5
Wisconsin is right there at number five and Texas in the number six spot.
And that is the case with the quartet of USC, Penn State, Nebraska and Creighton rounding out the top ten.
It is such a very important thing for one to take note the fact that this is just a snapshot.
And as a result of this, all of the rankings could change significantly in the next three weeks.

Maybe Nebraska’s win over Penn State too could go ahead in helping to effect changes on the standings.
A year ago, only two of the top four sides in the reveal were in the top four in the actual bracket.
Nebraska fell from the second place to the fifth position despite not losing a game the rest of the way.
And after which the Cornhuskers went on to pick up their fifth national championship in the history of the competition.
