Utah, BYU to host NCAA volleyball games

UNI is making its 21st overall NCAA Tournament appearance, returning to the postseason for the third-straight season.

The NIVC started out as the Women's Invitational Volleyball Championship in 1989 and was renamed two years later to the NIVC. Texas State plays Rice on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. inside Strahan Coliseum. The victor of that match advances to a semifinal December 4-6 at a home site with the victor moving to the championship match set for 5 p.m. December 12.

"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. "Hopefully we get to play here again.' The fact that we at least get one more is really exciting", Staiger said.

Tickets went on sale Sunday night. A full pricing guide can be found here.

Creighton is 1-0 all-time against Coastal Carolina, defeating the Chanticleers in the First Round of the 2015 NCAA Tournament in Chapel Hill, N.C.

First Warning Weather: Warmer Temps On The Way
Temperatures will drop into the 30s first thing tomorrow morning, so you'll probably want a jacket if you're headed out early. Temperatures will swiftly begin dropping again, sliding through the 50s and back into the upper 40s by late evening.

The Utes will host the first two rounds of the tournament starting with two matches on Thursday night.

On Friday, the volleyball team will travel to Omaha, Nebraska to take on Missouri State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Claiming its program-record first top-four seed ensured the path to Kansas City, the site of the 2017 Final Four, will go through Lexington for the Cats. MW champion Colorado State was named Sunday to the NCAA tournament as the only bid from the conference. "It's obviously a huge step for the program and a great accomplishment to be the first Big South volleyball program to receive an at-large bid". The Red Raiders finished sixth in the Big 12.

For the past two years, Wichita State has played in Nebraska. The Blujays earned the conference's title with a come-from-behind, 3-2 win over Marquette in the league championship. The Hilltoppers are 30-3 overall on the year and 13-1 against league foes. With a win, the Badgers would face the victor of the Princeton-Iowa State match.

Senior outside hitter Simone Lee leads the Nittany Lions in kills this season with 409 heading into the tournament, while classmate Haleigh Washington paces the defense with 156 total blocks.
