Bruins Will Host NCAA Volleyball First/Second Round

Nov. 26, 2006

LOS ANGELES - The UCLA women's volleyball team has been selected as the No. 4 national seed in the 64-team NCAA Championship field, and will open tournament play at home on Friday, December 1 against UAB. Utah and Michigan State will also play opening-round matches at Pauley Pavilion.

The Bruins (29-3), ranked fourth in the most recent CSTV/AVCA Coaches Poll, are participating in their 25th NCAA Championship. UCLA has won three NCAA titles (1984, 1990, 1991) and six total National Championships in women's volleyball (1971-72 DGWS and 1974, 1975 AIAW). This is UCLA's first top-four national seed since 1994, which is also the year of UCLA's most recent trip to the NCAA Division I Semifinals.

Winners of Friday night's first round matches (Utah vs. Michigan State at 5:30 pm; UAB at UCLA at 8 pm) will play on Saturday night, December 2, at 7 pm. All three matches will take place at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion.

All-session tickets will be available at Pauley Pavilion on the day of the event. All-sessions passes will sell for $18 for adults and $10 for students and youth. Single-session tickets, which will only be sold on game-days, are available for $10 for adults and $6 for students and youth. All tickets are general admission.
