For the purpose of the interview, and to avoid confusion, there was Boiler Bush and Bulldog Bush as Hayley Bush, the setter for Purdue, and Haley Bush, the hitter for Drake, met for the first time in this Zoom.

Boiler Bush is a 5-foot-10 redshirt senior from Union, Kentucky, who was a third-team All-American last spring after leading the Big Ten in assists.

Bulldog Bush is a 6-2 outside hitter from Waukee, Iowa, who was the Missouri Valley Conference player of the year last spring and a honorable-mention All-American.

Get to know the Bushes, Hayley and Haley, in this really fun visit: contributor Emily Ehman is a former Northwestern libero, lived in the bubble in Dallas and covered the inaugural Athletes Unlimited volleyball this spring, and does analysis on Big Ten volleyball broadcasts. She is also part of our weekly NCAA roundtable with Salima Rockwell and Jenny Hazelwood, and VBM editor Lee Feinswog. Follow her on Twitter @emilyehman and Instagram @emilyehman
