Yet, Sunday night in the Naismith room in Allen Fieldhouse, nothing felt scripted about the huge roar from the Kansas volleyball players when their first-round NCAA tournament match appeared on the screen. The victor plays Saturday in the Fieldhouse against the victor of the other first-rounder between OR and Kennesaw State. High Point was undefeated in the Big South, earning the regular season crown, but was upset by Radford 3-1 in its conference tournament. "Most of the girls have never been out there and it will be way more exciting than going to Iowa or some were like that".

"It's right down the road and that's what we've been working toward all season", Payne said of the Final Four.

MSU is 1-12 all-time in the tournament, with appearances in 1982, 1990, 1993, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2015 and 2016.

The Bears are 28-5 overall and have won 21 consecutive matches, the third-longest streak in school history and longest since 1975. "I think we're averaging over 2,000 fans, and I really hope they come out and support us".

"We went to Nebraska twice the last two years, so we were kind of expecting to get sent somewhere else", Raudsepp said.

The Big Ten champion Huskers, making their 36th straight NCAA Tournament appearance, will open with Friday's 2nd game at 6:00 MT against the Stony Brook New York Seawolves, champions of the America East. This year will be ETSU's first trip to the big dance since that season.

The University of Wyoming is among the 32 teams invited and faces Texas Christian at 3 p.m. MDT Thursday in Denton, Texas. I know this team is having a blast and we don't want the season to end. "We deserve to here, and we're going to make waves".

For seniors like West, it provides them one last opportunity to play in Hilton Coliseum.

The other first round matchup at the Ferrell Center will be between Colorado (22-9) and James Madison (23-5). Match time is to be determined. So they're battle-tested teams. They suffered some injuries early, but have been playing well. "They have one of the best setters in the country and they will be extremely tough". That match starts at 7pm MT on Saturday. So, knowing one way to play means we do it for an audience of one. So, we've learned all that. Chuck Voss has a very good team at Cleveland State. "And whoever you face, you have a shot". 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.

"Part of us this whole year has been multiplying the joy".

"We're excited because there are three of us from Lexington, so we'll all get to be around our family and friends", Martin said. "I think we are a little disappointed with the way we finished up the regular season, but what I am seeing from our team now is a focus". The RedHawks of Miami of OH went 23-8 on the season and 13-3 in the MAC.
