The UCF Knights Volleyball team earned the #13 national seed in the 2018 NCAA Volleyball Tournament, and will host the first two rounds at The Venue on campus Thursday and Friday.

It’s the first time UCF will host the tournament in the NCAA Division I era.

Here’s head coach Todd Dagenais afterwards:

UCF will start the tournament against A-Sun champion Florida Gulf Coast on Thursday at 7 p.m.. The winner of that match will face the winner of Florida vs. Florida State, who play at 4:30.

Unfortunately, the Knights are scheduled to play at the same time as the Men’s Basketball game against Alabama in CFE Arena.

This is UCF’s first appearance in the NCAA Volleyball Tournament since 2014. The Knights haven’t won a first round match since 2003 in Gainesville, when they beat Cincinnati before losing to Florida.
