WVB - Huskers get #1 seed in NCAA Tournament

Not surprising but the Huskers get the #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament and will take on Long Island University in the first round on Friday at 8PM. If I’m reading it right, Delaware and Missouri will also be in that regional.

Creighton is a 3 seed and will face Colgate in the opening round. Omaha is unseeded and will face 4 seed Kansas.

The fact that all three Nebraska D1 volleyball programs made the tournament is a strong testimony to the strength of and interest in volleyball in this state.

Do you know where Creighton and UNO travel to? I assume the Huskers are at home.

Also is Kearney D2? If so did they get in that tournament?

Looks like Kearney and Wayne State both made the tournament. Both will play in the same regional in Minnesota, Kearney vs SW Minnesota State and Wayne State vs Minnesota Duluth, though the regional is in St. Paul.

Omaha plays at host Kansas, Creighton will host their regional in Omaha.

Thanks Mike! I’ll check out the DIO brackets.

How many D2 volleyball programs are there in Nebraska?

IIRC Chadron, Kearney, and Wayne are the only D2 schools in Nebraska. Weslyan is the only D3.
