Volleyball to Host NCAA Selection Show Viewing Sunday
Nov. 23, 2012
MILWAUKEE – The Marquette University women’s volleyball team will host an NCAA Selection Show viewing party Sunday, Nov. 25 at the Union Sports Annex, starting at 2:30 p.m. The 64-team NCAA Division I Women’s Volleyball Championship bracket will be unveiled live on ESPNU at 3 p.m.
The Golden Eagles (26-6, 13-2 BIG EAST) fell in the title match of the BIG EAST tournament Sunday afternoon to No. 9 Louisville and are in search of their second NCAA appearance in program history. Marquette made its first trip to the NCAA Championship last season when it defeated No. 24 Western Kentucky in the first round before falling to eventual national runner-up Illinois in the second round.
MU, which sits 32nd in the latest NCAA Division I ratings percentage index rankings released Monday, has one final regular season contest Saturday at 6 p.m. against Northern Illinois at the Al McGuire Center. The Golden Eagles look to continue building on their program record for wins as a member of Division I as they aim for their 27th victory of the year.
The Annex is located at the corner of North 16th Street and Wells Street on Marquette’s campus.
