Every week at VolleyMob we will release the updated standings in every conference in Collegiate Men’s Volleyball. The regular season has come to a close with all teams either in the midst of league tournaments or about to start them up. The aggregated results of every team’s overall record via those conference standings can be seen below:
The final week of Big West regular season action took place and although none of the teams changed spots, the big story was Hawaii upending LBSU for the first time. While that didn’t move either team in the standings, it did keep Hawaii as the #2 seed, allowing them for a bye in the Big West Quarterfinals which begin this week.
#5 UC Irvine
UC San Diego
There was some tidying up to do for the Conference Carolinas this week, as the regular season standings are now final. We head into the league tournament this week as King plays host to it with an NCAA Tournament bid on the line.
Harvard had a chance to steal the EIVA title from George Mason, but the Patriots earned a pair of victories to lock things up. At the #4 spot, Princeton also secured their spot in the EIVA Tournament, where we go this week with the top four battling things out.
#16 George Mason
#18 Penn State
The IVA Tournament took place this week, and Lincoln Memorial took down Coker in the championship match in five sets. Behind that, Alderson Broaddus pulled off a mild upset over Queens in the third place match to finish off these league standings.
Although it comes against teams in the same conference, the MIVA Tournament doesn’t count toward the conference standings. Therefore these are set in stone – although the overall record is affected. Still, things wouldn’t change regardless as the MIVA Semifinals are all chalk with the higher seed winning every quarterfinal match.
#6 Ohio State
#7 Loyola Chicago
#10 Ball State
#13 Fort Wayne
Just like the MIVA, the league tournament matches don’t get recorded in a team’s conference record, so this table is set in stone now. It also affects the overall record though and an upset occurred, as USC went into Malibu and upended Pepperdine’s season. That means BYU takes on USC in the semifinals while UCLA faces Concordia Irvine.
