With the conference champions crowned and the NCAA Tournament set to begin on Thursday, here is a final look at the national statistical rankings through Week 16. VolleyMob will do a final update after the NCAA Tournament concludes May 5.

Lincoln Memorial edged past BYU for the top spot in team blocking with 2.84 stuffs per set. The No. 2 ranked Cougars are not far behind, however, sitting at 2.81 blocks per stanza heading into the NCAA Tournament.

King, which won the Conference Carolinas title and will be making its NCAA debut on Thursday against Ohio State, dropped its nation’s best opponent hitting percentage mark even lower from .158 to .146, a whopping .035 points ahead of second place Long Beach State.

UCLA’s Daenan Gyimah‘s top mark in hitting percentage should be safe even with upcoming NCAA Tournament contests against the nation’s best as he boasts a .535 effort, nearly 80 points ahead of Loyola’s Jeff Jendryk (.457).

The nation’s top five scorers have all finished their seasons, with Cal State Northridge’s Arvis Greene edging out UC San Diego’s Tanner Syftestad for the crown in both points and kills per set. Greene managed 5.19 points per set, including 4.55 kills per stanza, while Syftestad checked in with 5.18 points per set and 4.48 kills per stanza.
