The Gator volleyball team looks to advance past the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament tonight when it plays host to Big 10 foe Michigan in the O’Connell Center. You can hear the match live on WRUF Sports Radio 850 starting at 6:50pm.
Florida makes the Sweet 16 by beating Missouri and Northern Iowa on the road and now comes home to an NCAA predetermined host site to face a Michigan squad that is one of three Big 10 schools in this regional.
Ohio State and Illinois will play before the Florida-Michigan matchup and the winners will play Saturday for the right to advance to the Final Four.
The Big 10 is a very strong volleyball conference with none of these teams winning the Big 10 title; that went to Nebraska, but the Cornhuskers were knocked out in NCAA second round action.
