WKU got one of the easier draws in the entire bracket, with the lone quality team (Louisville) injured and limping into the tourney. However, they've got Texas if they advance to the second weekend. We've got #4 Wisconsin.

BTW our game times are 5:30pm CT on Thursday and, if we win, 7:30pm on Friday.

Volleyball NIT field. UTSA is playing in that tournament (but not Cal - they must have said no thanks). That's the only postseason tournament Rice has won a match (or two) in its postseason history. We really need to change that this year.

We have not looked good in post tournament play in the past. I hope it will be different this year. By the way, the MOB could not make it to Austin last year and there was limited student support in Austin. I hope it is different this year at College Station.

Thanks for the correction -- I was confused as well. The Rice and A&M websites now both say 4:30 Thu / 6:30 Fri.

Who's going?

Hopefully, it will be on either ESPNU or ESPN3. I'll be scouting from the Stanford regional (#3 Stanford vs. Denver, Georgia vs. Cal-Poly) on Friday and Saturday.

Here's a writer on the NCAA site who picks Rice to beat both Oklahoma and the Aggies, but lose at Wisconsin in the 3rd round....

https://www.ncaa.com/news/volleyball-wom...-predicted

I just hope we play our best, something we didn't do the first two rounds of the CUSA tourney. We played solid against WKU, but their far superior setting and defense did us in in the end. They totally took Anota out of her game for the first 3 sets of the match.

... and he picks Wisconsin to win it all!

So if we upset the Badgers ... :-)

And he has WKU winning 3 before falling to Texas. So if the 'Toppers upset the 'Horns, we could get a third chance at WKU for the trophy!

WKU got a very easy draw, especially when one learns that Louisville is missing one of their best players due to injury, but don't they face Texas in Austin in the 3rd round?

You're right! Thanks for the correction. I looked and posted too quickly. Mea culpa.

I think you can safely assume no.

Per our and aTm's websites, all three matches of the regional will be on SEC Network Plus, making it streaming only, via the WatchESPN app or website.

Does that make it free of charge on WatchESPN?

Just got an e-mail from Rally Club. There's confirmed no bus tomorrow, but there may be one for Friday. Students can get Thursday tickets discounted to $3. There's also a student watch party at the Lovett College Commons.
