  • Coastal Carolina Volleyball to Face #9 Creighton in First Round of NCAA Tournament

The Coastal Carolina (20-7) volleyball team will face ninth-seeded Creighton (25-6) in the first round of the 2017 NCAA Women's Volleyball Championship, it was announced Sunday night during the NCAA Selection Show.

The Lady Toppers (30-3) will face Notre Dame (22-9) at 4 p.m. CST Friday at Lexington in a first-round NCAA match at Memorial Coliseum.

The Utah-Cleveland State victor will take on the victor of High Point (24-7) and Purdue (22-9) on Friday at 7 p.m.

Almost a year ago, the Utah volleyball players made a commitment to each other that they would earn the right to host the first rounds of the 2018 NCAA Tournament.

Big Ten co-Champion Penn State enters the tournament as the No. 1 overall seed, while No. 5 Nebraska and No. 7 Minnesota also earned top-16 seeds. The Rams have won 13-of-21 first-round matches during Hilbert's tenure.

The longtime bitter rivals meet at 6 p.m. Friday at Charles Koch Arena in Wichita. 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. UNI has advanced to at least the second round 11 times.

After capturing its first Southeastern Conference championship under 13th-year head coach Craig Skinner, the Wildcats run in the postseason will start in Lexington beginning on Friday.

The matchup will be the first for Austin Peay versus a team from the Pac-12, while UCLA is 2-0 all-time versus OVC teams, with wins over Eastern Kentucky and Murray State.

That trio is joined by Louisville native Alyssa Cavanaugh as Kentuckians who'll play in their home state in the NCAA.

With the No. 1 overall seed, Penn State will host the regional on December 8 and 9 as well.

The victor of that match will face either regional host Kentucky or East Tennessee State in the second round from Lexington.

The Pioneers' current RPI (55) is the highest end-of-season RPI in program history, which earned them a No. 3 seed in the region.
