Marquette to host men’s NCAA match

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

Marquette University will host a men’s NCAA match on Saturday, Nov. 11, at the Al McGuire Center.

The exhibition will feature NCAA Div. I Loyola University Chicago take on NCAA Div. II Lewis University (Romeoville, Ill.).

The match will be played at the conclusion of the 6 p.m. NCAA Div. I women’s match between Marquette and Big East rival Villanova.

Marquette currently does not offer an NCAA men’s program, but is exploring the opportunity of adding the sport in the near future.

Loyola won the National Championship in back-to-back years in 2014 and 2015, defeating Lewis 3-2 in 2015.

In addition to winning numerous conference and regional championships, the men’s club team at the school won the NCVF championship in 2005 and took third place in 2017.

Nov. 11 is also the WIAA Boys Volleyball Championship at Wisconsin Lutheran College on Milwaukee’s west side, making the Brew City a hotbed of boys and men’s volleyball on this date.

Details about the match are still being worked out.
