Spartans Will Travel to Kentucky for NCAA Tournamanent

Michigan State Volleyball did not receive a top-16 seed for the NCAA tournament on the NCAA Women’s Volleyball Selection Show, but did receive an at-large bid.

This is the Spartans’ third consecutive at-large tournament bid as they will take on Ohio in Lexington, Ky.

The Spartans finished their season 21-11 overall with a 10-10 Big Ten record after beating Michigan 3-0 in Ann Arbor on Wednesday, and losing to Purdue in a five set battle.

Ohio went 27-5 on the season and finished the season with a sweep over Eastern Michigan University to take the MAC conference title.

Last year, MSU lost to Michigan in the regional semifinals as the Wolverines went on to the Final Four.
