Come out and support Cards Men’s Volleyball in Playoffs

My ex-coach has ask me to recruit support as Stanford begins playoffs for next few weeks. Be sure to represent Eclipse in the crowds. See you there!

The Stanford men’s volleyball team looks to continue its regular-season success as it hosts No. 8 seed UC-Irvine (15-14, 10-12 MPSF) in the first round of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) Tournament on Saturday night.
The Cardinal, who will enjoy home-court advantage throughout the playoffs, enters postseason play as the No. 1 seed in the tournament and the No. 1 team in the country after going 19-6 overall this season with a 16-6 conference record.

Winning the tournament isn’t the only route to NCAA postseason play for the Cardinal, though. The NCAA Tournament consists of four teams, three from the three major conferences, receiving automatic bids by winning their conference tournament, and one selected as an at-large bid. If Stanford does not win the MPSF Tournament, there is a very good chance that the Cardinal, the No. 1 team in the nation, will receive the at-large bid.
Regardless of how it happens, if Stanford does make the NCAA Tournament, it will be fortunate to be able to play in Maples Pavilion again, as the arena is the site of the tournament. Therefore, as long as the Cardinal continues winning and stays in the hunt for the national title, it will continue to play in front of a friendly, hometown crowd.
