Default 2016 NCAA volleyball tournament

Panthers made it in.
They'll play Creighton in Lawrence, KS.
With #5 seed Kansas playing Samford.

So UNI has a rematch against Creighton, and if they are able to advance, they'll face a rematch against Kansas.

The Jayhawks are probably upset that they weren't given one of the top 4 seeds, after having won the Big 12 championship and with a top 4 RPI (I think), but instead Texas (2nd place in the Big 12) got the #4 seed. Could be due to Kansas not being able to host the regional rounds (their vb arena is too small and their basketball arena is unavailable that weekend)

The Panthers faced the Bluejays in the first match of the USC Radisson Classic back on Sept. 2 in Los Angeles (4th match of the season for UNI).

Creighton won 3-0, but it was a closely contested match, with set scores of:
20-25, 30-32, 25-27

The next weekend, the Panthers traveled to Lawrence and took on Kansas on Sept. 10
again, UNI lost in straight sets, but it was another competitive match: 24-26, 17-25, 23-25

Hopefully the Panther players have improved since then, and can put together a good fight against their former conference-mate.

Very happy to see the Panthers in again, we were playing really well down the stretch and it's great that the committee recognized that. IMHO this is a better UNI team than last year.

Have to give props to the Shockers, they certainly earned the auto-bid.

Looking forward to the MVC also getting some at-large bids in WBB and SB.

UNI down 0-2 vs creighton. Creighton is tall, 6-3 setter and good. Showing our weak back row. Starters are hitting -%. Hope they can regroup for set 3

KBB has built a good program with Creighton VB.
Sad to see this group of seniors go. They were able to play through adversity the past few years and claw out some success. Great young women.
But there is lots of young talent returning too, and hopefully UNI can regain their perch atop the Valley next year

Seemed like it only took Creighton about 5 seconds to score those last 3 points after we'd tied it. They are tall and hit hard. First time I remember seeing a 6'3" setter,and she did a great job.

Really enjoyed watching this team throughout the year. Lots of fight in this Panther squad.

Very curious how next year's lineup is going to look. We losing 5 seniors, and as of now, haven't we only signed Seehase as an incoming freshmen next season?

Don't like the quick exit, but proud of what this team accomplished during the season and during the careers of the seniors.

Creighton went on to beat #5 seed Kansas (#4 in the coaches poll) on their home floor in the 2nd round tonight.

I don't think UNI has anything to hang their heads about.

Creighton is certainly talented. Have to grudgingly give them props for recovering in set 5 after we clobbered them in set 4 and had all the momentum.
