Volleyball 2022

Recommended Posts

Serial winners. in their biggest match of the year, Towson came through with a monstrous attacking performance, and delivered a 3-0 no-doubter to head back to the big show yet again. This team was a clear class above the rest of the CAA, and assuming they return most of their players, they could very well be just as dominant next year. 

Moving on to the NCAA tournament, there has been a big rule change that will greatly impact our placement. The committee now seeds 32 teams instead of 16, and then sends the bottom 32 to locations that they are close to. In the past, only the top 16 teams were seeded, so we were never even in contention for a seed. This is why we were always sent somewhere nearby, and it mostly benefitted us because the conferences/teams in our area are not as strong as those in the midwest and west. Now, we could get a seed, but it would be a low one. This would mean we would be sent to our first weekend location based on competitive placement and NOT proximity. As a result, the whole country is open, and we would be destined to play one of the best teams in the country in the second round. It'll be a big challenge, but that's what it takes to be a top program. Bring it on, I say.

Congratulations ladies. Now it’s time to make some tournament noise. I’ve been following volleyball very closely this year and this team fights.

Worth noting: Bowling Green, who we absolutely steamrolled at the beginning of the year, won the MAC yesterday. The result could go a long way toward determining if we get a seed or not for the tournament.

I don’t think so. Furman lost in their conference semifinal, American ending up disappointing this season, and Princeton got shocked in their first playoff match.
