Eagles to Host NYU in NCAA First Round on Saturday

HUNTINGDON, Pa.- The Juniata men's volleyball team now knows who their opponent is and where they will play in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The Eagles will host the Violets of New York University on Saturday at Memorial Gymnasium.

 

Juniata earned the Continental Volleyball Conference's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament by virtue of a 3-2 victory over Eastern Mennonite on Saturday. NYU upset SUNY New Paltz 3-2 to claim the United Volleyball Conference championship and automatic bid.

 

This is the first meeting between the two teams since 2012. Juniata is making its third NCAA appearance while it is the fourth for NYU. The winner will face Wentworth in the quarterfinals on April 28 at Springfield College.

 

Match time will be announced on Tuesday.
