The College of Charleston volleyball team has received an at-large bid to the NCAA Division I Volleyball Championship for the first time in program and Colonial Athletic Association. The Cougars, who learned of their selection on Nov. 26, 2017, will face Miami in the opening round on Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017, at 4:30 p.m. in Gainesville, Fla. For the full bracket, visit the NCAA website.
This marks the ninth appearance in the NCAA Tournament for College of Charleston (27-5), which sat firmly on the bubble at No. 50 in the final NCAA RPI rankings, and grabbed the final spot in the field after falling to James Madison in the CAA Championship match earlier this month. The Cougars last participated in the NCAA Tournament in 2013, when they fell to No. 14 Duke, 3-1.
Charleston brings one of its best postseason resumes in recent memory – with five wins against the top-100 and one against a top-15 school (Baylor).
