Baylor Volleyball earns No. 1 Overall Seed in 2019 NCAA Championship

NCAA Women's Volleyball Cougars and Utes seek to bring rivalry to the NCAA Tournament

The Huskies will host Winthrop, Colorado State, and SC in the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament, playing Winthrop in the first round at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 6.

After waiting 16 years between its last two NCAA tournament appearances, SC volleyball wasted no time in getting back to the postseason in 2019, earning back-to-back tourney berths with an at-large bid Sunday night.

"You're just always honored to get the chance to host an NCAA Tournament", UK head coach Craig Skinner said, according to a news release by the school. The Cardinals earned an at-large bid and are the team responsible for Western Kentucky's only loss this season.

UNI also received a bid and will face Missouri in the first round at Lincoln, Nebraska.

Tickets for the matches in Bowling Green can be purchased via WKU's website.

The other first round match-up at 4:30 p.m.is between UNLV (19-10) and Kansas City (17-11).

Television and broadcast information for all three matches will be announced at a later time.

The NIVC is an alternative postseason opportunity for teams who do not qualify for the NCAA Tournament. In 2018, SC advanced to the second round, defeating Colorado in the first round before falling to No. 2 seed Minnesota.

The Hilltoppers' first-round opponent in Diddle Arena on Thursday is Kennesaw State. SEMO is 23-10 overall and 12-4 in their conference. Junior middle blocker Maggie Adams and junior outside hitter Laney Malloy were named to First-Team All-OVC honors.

MI is 20-10 overall and was 13-7 in the Big Ten Conference, with its last win coming against in, 3-1.

The Oklahoma Sooners, who the Aggies defeated on September 17 of this season, earn their 12th tournament selection in program history with an at-large bid. This is the third NKU sport to advance to the NCAA Tournament since Northern Kentucky's transition to Division I.
