Creighton volleyball announces non-conference schedule

The Creighton volleyball program spent much of last fall and the last nine days on the practice floor hoping for the chance to play in the spring of 2021. 

Yesterday, that patience was rewarded with the announcement of seven non-conference matches.  Creighton's BIG EAST schedule is still being finalized and will be announced upon completion.  The regular-season starts on Jan. 22nd, when the Bluejays host Nebraska-Omaha at 6:00.  Two days later the Bluejays will square off against Northern Iowa in a 2:00 contest.  They will also entertain South Dakota and two matches versus Marquette while visiting South Dakota and Kansas State.  The NCAA Tournament is expected to be completed April 8-24, with the Final Four set for CHI Health Center Omaha.  Creighton was ranked 15th last Tuesday in the AVCA's preseason poll.
