SEATTLE, WA (AP) -- 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.
