  • Volleyball starts NCAA Tournament on Friday

The Jayhawks rallied from 24-20 in the third set to win 27-25 at Horejsi Center.

Triple Crown Sports of Fort Collins, Colorado, who also runs the WNIT, returned to run the tournament this season for teams who didn't make the NCAA tournament. Northern Iowa received an at-large bid into the NCAA tournament and enter post season play with a 26-8 overall, 15-3 MVC record. They're a lot of good teams out there, but we certainly feel like we've been treated well.

The NIVC is an annual tournament involving 32 of the nation's top women's Division I volleyball teams.

"I don't know anything about Princeton, so we will have to get to work", Johnson-Lynch said.

Nebraska was one of eight Big Ten teams in the field of 64, second only to the Pac-12, which got nine in. The Rams earned the automatic bid by sweeping the Atlantic 10 conference championships, reaching their second NCAA Tournament in program history and first since 2005 when they won the CAA championship. MSU made it to the second round in 2011, 2014, and 2015, and advanced to the Sweet 16 both 2012 and 2013. The 2017 season also marks the third-straight year the Gophers have held a top 10 seeding in the NCAA Tournament, after holding the overall No. 2 spot the previous two years. "We are appreciative of the fact that the committee felt like our season was warranted an opportunity to compete for the national championship and to be in the tournament". Notre Dame (22-9, 12-8 ACC) finished the regular season strong, winning six of its last seven matches to build momentum heading into postseason play.

Complete Tournament Schedule Round One Tuesday, Nov. 28 At Pacific Sacramento State vs. UC Irvine, 7:30 p.m. ET Boise State vs. The Blujays earned the conference's title with a come-from-behind, 3-2 win over Marquette in the league championship. That gives the Gophers a 4-0 all-time record.

Plus, NU's path to the Final Four won't include another Big Ten opponent and won't send Nebraska to Florida or Texas, teams Cook singled out for causing the Huskers matchup problems.

After the first and second rounds, the tournament continues during the quarterfinals on December 2-4 and semifinals from December 4-6.
