  • No. 3 Ohio State 3, No. 2 Minnesota 1:¬†The Buckeyes are back! In the third match¬†with Minnesota, the Buckeyes came out with a four-set victory behind a dominant performance from Emily Londot. After dropping the first set, OSU went on to win the next three 25-21, 25-21 and 25-19. The offense was lights out, led by Mac Podraza with 51 assissts. They hit .298 as a team led by Londot's insane performance ‚ÄĒ a career-high 29 kills on .500 hitting. She used every single tool in the box in that match, even adding on 13 digs and two blocks. Jenaisya Moore and Rylee Rader posted double-digit kills.¬†Podraza distributed the ball beautifully. They transitioned well from defense to offense and looked back to their midseason form after going on a losing streak to end the regular season. The Buckeyes next face Texas in the regional final, while Taylor Landfair and the Gophers have been eliminated from the tournament. | Game Highlights¬†| Watch all 29 of Emily Londot's kills
  • No. 1 Louisville 3, No. 4 Baylor¬†0:¬†The Cards have advanced to the regional final to play¬†Oregon after a sweep over Baylor. Louisville has now swept every team in the tournament they have faced¬†so far. Some big news to note ‚ÄĒ Anna DeBeer looked back to full strength and was hitting in the front row. She had previously been limited to the backcourt as she returned from injury. But in¬†the win over Baylor, she posted 11 kills on .364 hitting with eight digs. Claire Chaussee also posted 11 kills with 12 digs. DeBeer's offensive outing was a really good sign for this team as they move on the regional final and look to win their first national title in program history. Baylor has been eliminated from the tournament. |Game highlights
  • No. 1 Texas 3, No. 4 Marquette 1:¬†The Longhorns are moving on to face Ohio State in the regional final with a four-set win over Marquette.

Eggleston also added three service aces as the team served 10 total aces on the match. Serving and blocking, as noted by Eggleston after the match, has been a big emphasis for this team as they get further along in the tournament. Marquette put up a great fight, taking the third set 25-19 and holding Eggleston to just one kill in that set. Marquette's Aubrey Hamilton was held to negative hitting, though, in the loss, and the Golden Eagles have been eliminated from the tournament. |Watch Logan Eggleston highlights
  • No. 2¬†Pittsburgh 3, No. 3 Florida 1: The Pittsburgh Panthers are moving on to the regional final for the third straight year following a four-set win over Florida.

The Gators did register 11 service errors on the match. Courtney Buzzerio led all hitters with 19 kills on .268 hitting with eight digs and five blocks. Despite dropping the third set the Panthers maintained the lead in the fourth after jumping out to a 6-2 lead. Marina Markova, who posted 15 kills on .400 hitting for Florida, fought off two match-points at the end of the fourth, but Buzzerio finished it off for Pitt on the very next play. The Panthers will face the winner of Wisconsin and Penn State in the regional final. Florida has been eliminated from the tournament. |Game highlights
  • No. 1¬†Wisconsin 3,¬†No. 4 Penn State 2:¬† Wisconsin advanced to the regional final with a thrilling five-set win over Penn State. Anna Smrek had a huge game for the Badgers with 13 kills on .579 hitting with eight blocks. Wisconsin took the first set then pulled out the win in set two despite a less than pretty performance on both sides of the net ‚ÄĒ Wisconsin hit .031 to Penn State's¬†-0.064. Penn State then rallied to take the next two sets. Kaushauna Williams sealed the deal on a close third set and then they took the fourth 25-20 to force a fifth. The Badgers came out the gates hot with a 6-1 run to start the fifth. The Nittany Lions sparked a 3-0 comeback towards the end of the set, but Wisconsin notched two-in-a-row to win it.

The bottom right portion of the bracket ‚¨áÔłŹ

And finally, we have the bottom right portion of the bracket highlight by Louisville as our fourth and final No. 1 seed. The other three hosts in this quadrant are No. 2 Nebraska, No. 3 seed Oregon and No. 4 Baylor. The Huskers and Ducks make this a really strong portion of the bracket ‚ÄĒ Oregon has taken down top teams like Stanford this season and Nebraska has some really bigs wins in the Big Ten.¬†

Bottom right portion of the bracket
1:02 am, November 28, 2022

The top right quadrant of the bracket ‚¨áÔłŹ

Moving on to the top right portion of the bracket ‚ÄĒ Wisconsin, the reigning national champions are a No. 1 seed for the 2022 tournament. The Badgers just went on an 18-win streak to end the season including huge wins over Ohio State and Nebraska to end the year. Pittsburgh comes in as the No. 2 seed, Florida as the No. 3 seed and No. 4 Penn State volleyball to round out the four hosts. This is another tough quadrant of the bracket.¬†

Top right bracket
12:53 am, November 28, 2022

The bottom left portion of the bracket ‚¨áÔłŹ

Now for the bottom left portion of the bracket! Stanford in the No. 1 seed, meaning they received one of the top four seeds in the tournament following its 24-4 season and Pac-12 title. San Diego received a two-seed for the tournament despite just one loss on the season. 

Bottom left portion of the bracket
12:43 am, November 28, 2022

The top left quadrant of the bracket ‚¨áÔłŹ

Texas is the No. 1 seed in the top left portion of the bracket. The Longhorns have eight-seed Towson in their regional. But even more so, this portion of the bracket is absolutely loaded. Minnesota, USC, Ohio State, Marquette and Georgia Tech are ALL in this quadrant. The Buckeyes had the potential to be a one-seed in the tournament before going on a losing-streak for the past two weeks. Because of this, they are a three-seed in the tournament, but still a really tough out, making this an extremely tough quadrant.
