MSU Volleyball Bears Take On Michigan State For 1st Round of NCAA

In its second ever NCAA Volleyball Championship Tournament appearance, Austin Peay State University's volleyball team will make a cross-country trek to Los Angeles and historic Pauley Pavilion for a 10:00pm (central time), December 1st, match versus the tournament's number 15 overall-seed UCLA.

The Fighting Hawks, who are back-to-back Big Sky Conference tournament champions, posted a school-record 30 wins this season. The Bears owns a 30-9 series lead versus Creighton, and have not played since the Bluejays left the MVC following the 2012 season.

After a regular season in which Nebraska defied preseason expectations by winning a share of the Big Ten championship, the Huskers asked John Cook if they could embrace the underdog spirit by bringing their pets to the Devaney Center on Sunday night to watch the unveiling of the NCAA tournament brackets. KU came from behind in the third set to complete a sweep of the Tigers, and went on to reach the Final Four.

Ticket and broadcast information will be added to this article as that information becomes available. The Toreros also qualified for the NCAA Tournament and will play in Los Angeles against No. 10 seed USC on Friday. The fourth place finish is the best for the Utes since joining the Pac-12, and although they have hosted two other times, this is their first time hosting since joining the league. The team plays along with MVC Player of the Year Lily Johnson, Libero of the Year Emily Butters, with Coach of the Year Melissa Stokes at the helm. I know this team is having a blast and we don't want the season to end. The field includes 20 automatic qualifiers and 12 at-large teams. "We're just hoping to end on a high". While the Big Ten season is a grind, it also gives our teams a level of preparation to go toe-to-toe with the other great teams in this tournament. Regionals for the NCAA Division I Women's Volleyball Championship will be held at four non-predetermined campus sites, which will be announced after play concludes, on December 2. United Kingdom last hosted the first and second rounds in Lexington in 2015. This year's Final Four is Dec 14-16 in Kansas City, Missouri. "So we will see how long we can keep it going".

Texas Tech is set to take on SMU at 4 p.m. Thursday in San Marcos as part of the NIVC, which returned after a 22-year hiatus.
