Beat Valpo and UIC, who they had been tied with, last weekend to move to 7-2 in conference.

Up to 13-2. Before losing a set in a 3-1 win yesterday, they had won 22 sets in a row.

A Drake vs UNI MVC tournament final would be awesome to see. UNI clearly a step or two above everyone else in conference, but Drake could surely pull an upset if given a chance.

Is there an NIT type tournament in volleyball, or is it NCAAs or bust?

Not sure if their non-con is at large worthy, but still a great season.

There used to be some national college volleyball invitational. I only know this because of the banner at Knapp. No idea if it’s still a thing.

UNI takes the sole title at 17-0 with Drake alone in 2nd at 15-2. Still a shot to ruin the undefeated MVC season. Or taking the conference tournament.

It is still around. Drake played Iowa State one year in it. Basically like the NIT.

HUUUUUUGE!
Finish in second place in the conference but totally a threat to win the tourney for sure.
Especially because the conference tourney isn't in Cedar Falls.

Did I really read that the overall record between the 2 schools is 73-7 UNI? Wow. That is a very big win.

Drake defeats UIC in the semi-finals, 3-0, to take on UNI for the championship, tomorrow (4PM Central on ESPN3).  The ladies will probably need a win to make the tournament because of a soft RPI.
Dogs, who finished second, just defeated the first place Panthers a week ago.

25-18, 25-21, 25-21

Is it safe to say this is the biggest match in program history?

Is it safe to say this is the biggest match in program history?

The only Bracketology projection I could find was completed by a NCAA staff writer with games through November 15 (before UNI win and MVC Tournament). She only had UNI in as an auto qualifier from MVC.

The 2022 DI women's volleyball bracket predicted, less than two weeks from selections

With a 68 RPI and a 74 Massey you are correct it is probably the NIVC without a win today. If Drake wins, the MVC may get both Drake and UNI in NCAA.

To contextualize a bit:
Wednesday's title match will be the Bulldogs' first championship game appearance since 1996.

The Bulldogs picked up their 26th win of the season, the highest single season total in program history.

No matter what happens today, an amazing season

Great season

Wanted that bad for 'em! Sounds like a ton of the players will be back next season including the MVC Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year.
