Volleyball prepares for Dayton in NCAA Tournament

A year after Marquette volleyball missed out on the NCAA tournament, the 2021 Selection Show brought good news: it sent the Golden Eagles (26-5 overall, 16-2 BIG EAST) to Purdue for a first-round matchup against the University of Dayton (25-5 overall, 16-0 Atlantic 10) Dec. 2 at 3:30 p.m. Central Time.

“With everything that has gone on over the course of the last two years, I’m happy our players get the opportunity to go back and be in the NCAA tournament,” head coach Ryan Theis said.

Due to a 3-0 loss Saturday afternoon to Creighton and missing out on a BIG EAST Tournament title for the fifth straight year, the Golden Eagles were selected to the Field of 64 as an at-large bid.
