Volleyball Set For MVC Tournament Opener Against Indiana State

PEORIA, Ill. -- Tying for third in the Missouri Valley Conference regular-season standings, Bradley Volleyball matched the highest Valley Tournament seed in school history (#3) and will face #6 seed Indiana State Thursday in a 6 p.m. opening-round contest that will be played at Illinois State's Redbird Arena.

The Braves (16-13 overall, 12-6 MVC) tied Valparaiso for third in the league standings, but won the tie breaker with the Beacons for the #3 seed in the tournament. Bradley swept the regular-season series from #6 seed Indiana State (17-11 overall, 9-9 MVC), which tied Evansville for fifth in the Valley standings and won four of its last five to claim the final spot in the six-team tournament field.
