Marquette ranked for first time

MILWAUKEE -- The American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) released its latest poll on Monday afternoon, and Marquette entered its top 25 for the first time in program history at No. 24 with 129 points.

Complete Poll
The Golden Eagles (23-5, 15-1 Big East) jumped into the poll following wins against Xavier and Butler to close out the regular season as outright Big East regular season champions. Marquette was receiving 69 points a week ago.

Texas is No. 1 with 41 first-place votes, followed by Penn State, Stanford, Missouri and Washington to round out the top five.

Outside hitter Autumn Bailey earned her sixth Big East Freshman of the Week honor on Monday afternoon. Bailey notched 43 kills in the two victories, including 26 in Friday's win against Xavier as MU locked up sole possession of the league's regular-season crown. She hit .408 in the win and 26 kills is her second-highest total this season. She also added 17 kills, 13 digs and four service aces in Saturday's win against Butler.

The Golden Eagles moved up to 10th in the NCAA's weekly RPI rankings, ahead of possible conference tournament foes Creighton (16), Butler (41) and Xavier (53).

Marquette has earned the No. 1 seed in the 2013 Big East championship tournament and will face fourth-seeded Butler in the semifinals at 4 p.m. Friday at D.J. Sokol Arena in Omaha, Neb.
