2011 Mountain West Volleyball Championship Bracket
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.—CSU locked up the No. 1 seed in the Mountain West volleyball championship nearly a week ago, but Saturday evening, at the conclusion of the conference regular season, the rest of the bracket was announced.
The Rams will play No. 8 Air Force, which went winless in MW action in 2011, Friday at 6 p.m. MT in the quarterfinals. On CSU’s side of the bracket are No. 4 Wyoming and No. 5 New Mexico. With a win against Air Force, CSU would advance to the semifinals and play the winner of the No 4/5 match, Saturday at 7:30 p.m. MT. From there, the championship match is set for Sunday, Nov. 20, at 6 p.m. MT.
San Diego State finished the regular season as the No. 2 seed and will play No. 7 UNLV, while TCU finished third and is matched up against sixth-seeded Boise State. Boise State finished tied with New Mexico for fifth place, but lost both head-to-head matched to fall to No. 6. TCU barely edged Wyoming for third place. With both teams concluding the season with 9-5 conference records and splitting their head-to-head matchups, seeding went to a third tiebreaker: point differential against each other. TCU scored 201 on Wyoming, compared to the Cowgirls’ 198.
The tournament will be played at New Mexico’s Johnson Center, the same venue CSU won in Saturday against the Lobos. All matches will be televised, with the quarterfinals and semifinals on The Mtn. (DirecTV channel 616), and the championship match on the CBS Sports Network (613).
CSU is seeking its fifth MW tournament title. The Rams are 18-5 all-time in the tourney, and are the only current MW team to have won a championship. The tournament was brought back this year for the first time in 2007.
Single-match and all-tournament tickets can be purchased online.
