Volleyball Tigers Invited to the Big Dance
They have never missed the big dance in seven years leading the Tiger program.
The Tigers lost eight of their last twelve matches during the regular season, and finished sixth in the Big 12, but still get a trip to Palo Alto California Regional hosted by Stanford.
Mizzou will play Santa Clara Friday night. The Tigers lost to Santa Clara in four games in a tournament in Texas in the first week of the 2006 regular season. If Mizzou can get past Santa Clara, it would likely meet the Stanford Cardinal, the number two national seed, and a team that won the National Championship two years ago.
There were some anxious moments for the Tiger as their name was not revealed on the selection show until the final page of eight teams came up as part of the 64 team field.
