Hurricanes Selected to Third Straight NCAA Volleyball Championship
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami volleyball team is headed to the postseason for the third straight season, earning an at-large berth in the 2023 NCAA Division I Women’s Volleyball Championship, as announced by the selection committee Sunday evening.
“It seems like there are a lot of good volleyball teams every year and it’s getting more and more difficult to make the NCAA tournament each season, so we are proud to be one of them,” said head coach Jose “Keno” Gandara. “I’m so grateful to have another week with this group and our seniors. I’m excited to compete against a good UNI team this week in Madison.”
The Hurricanes, who finished the regular season with a 17-11 overall record and a 10-8 mark in conference play, will travel to Madison, Wisc., to take on eighth-seeded Northern Iowa (26-6, 18-0 MVC) on Nov. 30 in the first round of the Championship. First serve is set for 6 p.m. ET.
This marks the program’s 12th overall NCAA Volleyball Championship appearance and seventh under head coach Jose “Keno” Gandara.
Top-seeded Wisconsin and Jackson State round out the bracket in Madison, and Miami will play the winner of their match.
Miami tallied a pair of top-15 victories this season, defeating Georgia Tech on two occasions, once when the Yellow Jackets were ranked ninth and once when they were the No. 11 team in the nation.
