Next Best Lens - indoor volleyball

I am a new owner of a nikon d5100 with the kit lenses - 18-55 and 55-300. (i did struggle with the 5100 vs the d90 but felt the i could push the iso higher and have less noise with the 5100. I also picked up a Tamron 28-75 f2.8. My thought was to use this fast zoom for my daughters indoor volleyball. I can push the ISO pretty high on the camera. My thought was that I might also want a 85mm 1.4 - the Sigma with hsm being the more reasonable but still expensive option. Is this my next best option or should I go with a slightly longer lens like the 105 prime? Or try to get an expensive 70-200 2.8 non nikon lens - seem like such a huge lens. I may also do some portrait work. I am doing this for fun but want good photos on a hobby budget. Thanks!
