BEACH BACK IN BUSINESS
This marks the start of the third year of competition for Big West beach volleyball, the conference’s 17th-sponsored sport.
2017 NCAA TOURNAMENT RECAP
After sweeping Big West opposition at the conference tournament, Hawai‘i earned its second-consecutive Big West Tournament title. For the first time in league history, two Big West representatives earned at-large bids to the NCAA Tournament in UH and Long Beach State. The SandBows finished in third place at the NCAA Championship after falling 3-0 to Pepperdine in the semifinals. The Rainbow Wahine closed out the campaign with a program-best 29-7 mark. LBSU also had a historic campaign after notching a program-best 26 wins.
A six-team, double-elimination conference tournament will take place at Queen’s Beach in Honolulu on April 27 through April 29. Seeding of the event will be determined by the conference office based on criteria that includes head-to-head results, common opponents, AVCA national poll and overall records.
