LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The sixth-ranked Bruins have been selected by the NCAA Division I Women's Volleyball Committee to host a first and second round site for the 1999 NCAA Championship. Matches will be played at Pauley Pavilion on the UCLA campus on Saturday, Dec. 4 and Sunday, Dec. 5. Both sessions will begin at 5 p.m. PT.
UCLA, the Pac-10 Co-Champions, hold a 25-3 record on the 1999 season, and will open tournament play against Eastern Washington (24-7). In the first game of Saturday's opening round session, Notre Dame (20-8) and Ohio State (16-11) will face off at 5 p.m.
