College of Charleston volleyball earns second at-large NCAA bid

College of Charleston volleyball earns second at-large NCAA bid

Baylor gathers to celebrate taking the second set from Texas on November 25.

Friday's first-round match between the former conference rivals will mark the second time Kansas and Missouri have met in the NCAA Tournament in the last three years.

The High Point University volleyball team was selected to the NCAA Tournament as an at-large bid during the event's selection show on Sunday night.

This is 33rd time that Lincoln has hosted the opening weekend of the tournament. "If we couldn't be at Horejsi, it's good to be so close". It's always been about the girls, excited for them. "For the seniors, just being able to play in Hilton one more time is just awesome, an incredible feeling".

"So exciting", Baylor senior outside hitter Katie Staiger said. "It's a good first round for us". Defending national champion Stanford earned the third seed while Kentucky rounded out the top four.

Should Baylor win its first two matches, it would advance to meet the victor of the Lincoln (Neb.) Regional, hosted by fifth-seeded Nebraska.

"To be able to play in the Huntsman Center in front of our fans that have been tremendous all season long, I think we're averaging over 2,000 fans", Launiere said.

"I had a feeling we were going to end up in Lexington this year", WKU coach Travis Hudson said. The Postseason NIVC features 16 first-round games, followed by eight second-round games, four third-round games, two semifinal games and the championship. Additionally, team pairings were determined by geographic proximity, with the exception that teams from the same conference were not paired during the first- and second-rounds. "I think we are a little disappointed with the way we finished up the regular season, but what I am seeing from our team now is a focus".

After missing the postseason past year, Illinois, coach by Chris Tamas, got an at-large bid and will play Hawaii on Friday in Seattle. The current seniors are the only Tigers who have played in the postseason before. The Cowgirls' previous four bids were all in the NCAA tournament.

The other first round matchup at the Ferrell Center will be between Colorado (22-9) and James Madison (23-5). Match time is to be determined.
