Louisville Volleyball a #1 seed in NCAA Tournament -- MONDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


Louisville Volleyball reacts to their 1-seed

We did have to wait a while to find out, while watching the NCAA Volleyball Selection Show, but the Louisville Cardinals are the #1 seed in their region and will open NCAA Tournament play Friday, December 7 p.m. against Samford.   The Cards weren't announced until the final of the four brackets were revealed. 

Purdue and Tennessee will also travel to Louisville to square off against each other in the LNFCU, They'll play at 4 p.m.

The Samford Bulldogs earned an automatic qualifier bid after beating Furman in three sets Sunday to win the Southern Conference Volleyball Tournament. Samford went 19-12 in the regular season and was 11-5 in Southern Conference play. 

All told, five ACC teams made the tournament. Louisville, Pitt (a #2 seed), Georgia Tech, Florida State and Miami

Seven SEC schools got in (Kentucky, Georgia, Auburn, LSU, Florida, Tennessee and Arkansas) and the Big10 had six make the tournament. (Ohio St, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Penn State, Purdue and Nebraska.) 

We'll have more on this as the week advances. We had photographer Jared Anderson and Volleyball writer Jeff McAdams at the selection show, but they were not included in the entire post-show interview with Louisville Volleyball head coach Dani Busboom Kelly. 

Louisville ends the regular season with a 26-2 record and was 17-1 in ACC play.
