Two very evenly matched teams. WKU probably needed this more being the lower ranked team. This way both teams should remain in the top 25. Not so sure would have remained had they lost. Good match Rice. Your team is no fluke.
GO TOPPERS!!!

WKU moves to 26-1 on the season and 3-0 in five set matches. If we win our last two
regular season matches at home against Louisiana Tech and UAB, and win the C-USA Tournament, we will have a great chance to host the First and Second Rounds of the NCAA Tournament.

The Top 16 seeds in the NCAA Tournament get to host the First and Second Rounds on their campus.

Our current RPI I think is #27. Not sure we would have a chance for that. Don't trust the NCAA for good reason. Well see how much we move up in to the RPI this week.

Even at 31-1, NCAA would do us no favors...However just based on how much success we have had last decade we deserve to host for once...What a weekend for WKU sports, this will be a tough one to duplicate!

Great match. Great atmosphere too (at least 1500 people in the stands I'd say). We played a men's basketball game afterwards, and there were way fewer people for that than the volleyball match.

I look forward to a potential rematch in the finals of the conference tournament in two weeks. Both teams are easily in the NCAA tournament. This might have cost Rice a chance to host a regional - I do know that both Texas and Baylor don't want Rice at their regionals.

WKU moves up 3 spots to #19 in this week's poll. Rice drops 4 spots to #21 after the loss. But both teams are still in the top 25.

Cool. Nailed it. That's exactly what I felt the two teams would b ranked. Both teams should get invitations if they make it to the finals.
