The Missouri volleyball team will host one of 16 NCAA regionals as the 64-team tournament continues today. The Tigers (22-4) will face Missouri St. (24-8) in the late game at 7:30. Missouri earned an at-large bid and is the 10th seed overall in the tournament. MSU got an automatic bid by winning the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament last weekend.
The Bears have a large advantage in the 34-match series, winning 28 times. The two teams last met in 1998, when MU beat the Bears with a sweep in 1998.
The 5:30 match will feature St. Mary’s (19-9) against Arkansas (20-11).
