Nov. 28, 1999

CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson volleyball team, ranked 16th nationally, will play host to Indiana Thursday at Littlejohn Coliseum in the first round of the 1999 NCAA Championship Tournament. The Tigers are the fourth-seeded team in the East Region, and Pacific is the top-rated team in the region.

Northern Iowa, the only undefeated team in the tournament, and Ball State will square off in Clemson on Thursday in other first-round action. The winners of the two matches will play on Friday in Littlejohn Coliseum. Match times will be announced on Monday.

“We’re very excited that we were selected as a host for the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament,” said Clemson head coach Jolene Jordan Hoover, now in her seventh season with the Tigers. “We’re looking forward to having a great weekend of competition with some very good teams.”

The Tigers (31-2, 15-1 ACC) are making their fifth trip to the NCAA Tournament in the last seven years. Two other ACC teams are in the 64-team field: North Carolina and Virginia.
