Since clinching a berth in the NCAA tournament, Coastal Carolina’s
volleyball players have talked about making the most of their experience.
The Chanticleers learned their fate Sunday, and though Lincoln, Neb.,
wasn’t as glamorous as some of the other potential destinations, they will
experience an atmosphere that transcends the entire sport. Tenth-seeded Nebraska will host Coastal
(20-13) in the first round of the 64-team tournament on Friday.
Coastal Carolina's volleyball team will learn its NCAA tournament destination and opponent at the Crafy Rooster, a restaurant/bar in downtown Conway, on Sunday. The school will hold a selection show party at 3 p.m., when ESPNews will announce the brackets. The public is invited to attend.
Coastal won the Big South tournament this past weekend, clinching the school's first berth in the 64-team NCAA tournament since 1998. The Crafty Rooster is located at 1125 3rd Ave.
Technically the dance doesn’t begin for another week, but Kristen
Bauer and Co. put their shoes on Saturday.
Bauer’s Chanticleers clinched the school’s first Big South
volleyball title since 1998, defeating rival Liberty
3-1 in Radford, Va., to book a trip to the NCAA tournament. Coastal
(20-13) will learn its destination and seed next Sunday during the tournament
