After seven-consecutive weeks of receiving votes in the American Volleyball Coaches Association Poll, WKU volleyball has cracked the top-25 for the first time this season with a No. 24 ranking.

The honor came after the Lady Toppers notched the Conference USA Tournament Championship as well as a share of the regular-season title in their inaugural season in the league.

While the team had the possibility of receiving an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament with a 30-5 record, the Lady Toppers solidified their trip to the tournament with the C-USA Tournament title.

The program will celebrate its eighth tournament appearance by holding a viewing party of the NCAA Selection Show on Sunday, Nov. 30 that is open to all WKU fans. The party will be held at 6-4-3 Sports Bar — 360 E 8th Ave #104 — starting at 6:30 pm.

Locations and dates of the preliminary rounds of the tournament will be announced during the selection show, with the finals scheduled for Dec. 18th and 20th in Oklahoma City.
