Western Kentucky Volleyball Team Advances To NCAA Tournament | WKU

WKUThe No. 17 Western Kentucky University volleyball team learned Sunday afternoon its destination and opponent for the NCAA Volleyball Tournament, as the Lady Toppers will face Loyola Marymount on Friday, November 30 at 7:30 p.m. CT in Palo Alto, Calif.

“This is not what we were expecting,” WKU head coach Travis Hudson said. “There are two teams playing in the state of Kentucky-Kentucky was a surprise host for the first and second round and then Louisville is hosting as well. For us to end up in Palo Alto, California, is a bit of a surprise as is our first-round opponent, but we are looking forward to the trip.”

Should the Lady Toppers (32-3) advance, the team will face the winner of a match between Jackson State (24-11) and host Stanford (27-3), who earned the No. 2 national seed.
