Hoosiers defeat Ohio State, come up short of NCAA Tournament bid

The IU Hoosier Volleyball team watches the tournament selection Sunday evening at Nick's English Hut. The Hoosiers were not selected this year.

At 17-15 with a 9-11 conference record, the IU volleyball team waited on pins and needles Sunday night at Nick’s English Hut. Despite having above a .500 record and finishing sixth in the Big Ten conference, the NCAA’s premier volleyball conference, the Hoosiers did not make the tournament.

IU defeated Ohio State on Saturday to move its record to its final tally.

The Hoosiers were led by Mary Chaudoin’s 34 assists while Ashley Benson, Erica Short and Kelsey Hall had 47 combined kills.

After the game, IU coach Sherry Dunbar said, “In or out (of the NCAA Tournament), I’m so proud of these girls. To fight, scratch and claw like they did tonight, and really like they have all season long, just shows their character and desire to win.”
