Michigan, making its 17th trip to the NCAA Tournament, will take on Colorado State in the first round on Friday at 7:30 p.m. ET. Host North Texas (28-3) plays Oral Roberts (15-13) in the second match of the day at approximately 5 p.m. The winners of those two matches will meet in the second round, to be played at 9 p.m. (CT), Saturday.

"We have three classes that have been here before, and I think that that'll definitely keep us level-headed and ready for this tournament", Lohman said.

"I think some of us have played (in Lexington) and we know what it's like to win there", Foecke said, "so hopefully we can go there and do the same thing".

Single-match tickets will only be sold at the door the night of each match. A full pricing guide can be found here.


This marks the ninth appearance in the NCAA Tournament for College of Charleston (27-5), which sat firmly on the bubble at No. 50 in the final NCAA RPI rankings, and grabbed the final spot in the field after falling to James Madison in the CAA championship match last week. If victorious, the Red Raiders would then see the victor of Texas State and Rice on Friday in the second round.

The best season in VCU women's volleyball history continues Friday night against the Pittsburgh Panthers in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament. Claiming its program-record first top-four seed ensured the path to Kansas City, the site of the 2017 Final Four, will go through Lexington for the Cats.

American University has been dominant in the Patriot League, posting a 76-4 record in the past five seasons. Illinois, Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue and Wisconsin also received at-large bids to the tournament. The Red Raiders finished sixth in the Big 12. MSU made it to the second round in 2011, 2014, and 2015, and advanced to the Sweet 16 both 2012 and 2013. The Hilltoppers are 30-3 overall on the year and 13-1 against league foes. The Toppers utilize an impressive.335 attacking percentage and 14.16 kills per frame. They tied for the conference's regular-season title, then won the MAC tournament.

Athletes who assemble for NCAA tournament selection-show watch parties tend to stay pretty close to the script. First-round matchup appears on the TV screen and the players cheer, sometimes in hollow fashion.
