The University of Washington Husky volleyball team won their final two matches of Pac-12 play last week, including a 3-0 sweep of rival Washington State Cougars to win the Pac-12 championship.
The wins guaranteed the Huskies (26-2, 18-2) home court advantage for the first two rounds scheduled to be played December 6th and 7th.
Led by recently named Pac-12 Player-of-the-Year Krista Vansant Washington takes an overall number three seed into tournament play.
Not that the Huskies need any more incentives to make the finals but this year the NCAA Women’s Volleyball Division 1 Final Four will be in Seattle. The games are scheduled for December 19th and 21st at KeyArena.
Coming out of a tough Pac-12 conference, seven teams advanced to the playoffs with three teams seeded in the top ten, Washington should be ready for any team that comes their way.
The Huskies begin their playoff run at 7:30 pm on Friday, December 6th against Alabama State. A win will put them into the second round game against the winner of LSU Tigers/Michigan Wolverines who play earlier at 5:00 pm.
The second round game is scheduled for 7:00 pm on Saturday, December 7th.
All games are scheduled to be played at the Alaska Airlines Arena on the UW campus in Seattle.
