SMU To Face Texas A&M In NCAA Tournament First Round Friday

DALLAS (SMU/NCAA) – The SMU volleyball team will face Texas A&M in the first round of the NCAA Tournament in Austin, Texas, Friday at 4 p.m., earning a bid in the 64-team field for the second straight season. The Mustangs went 25-7 during the regular season, and won the American Athletic Conference championship with an 18-2 record.

The Mustangs made their first appearance in the tournament at Texas last season, falling to Purdue 3-1 in Austin. SMU, picked to finish third in the conference, led the league from start to finish, setting a program record for conference wins.

Katie Hegarty led the team with 436 kills, eclipsing 400 at SMU for the first time since Dana Powell had 416 in 2010. Freshman Kendall Patterson led The American with 1,258 assists, averaging 10.94 per set, aiding four attackers to more than 200 kills each this season.

Morgan Heise led the league in digs for the third straight season, finishing with 593, and Janelle Giordano led the conference with 139 blocks. The duo anchored the defense which held opponents to a conference-best .165 attack percentage.

The winner between SMU and Texas A&M will advance to play the winner between Texas and UT Rio Grande Valley Saturday.

I am surprised that Neb. (#1 seed) and the whorens are on the same side of the bracket. As both are vball powerhouses. And of course if SMU beats the ags then they have the pleasure of probably facing the whorens.

Oh I know!

The only two times I have watched BevoTV have been for SMU volleyball matches. I can't imagine ever watching one second of this crap for anything but an SMU athletic contest.
