Creighton now leads 2-1 and Marquete needs to win to stay alive. Currently 13-11 in the fourth, Creighton leads but Marquette is keeping it close.
When asked how he felt about Marquette being picked to finish ninth in the Big East, Tyler Kolek only had two words:

I don't normally watch volleyball but this 4 set was very captivating. 
Bring on the 5th.

Was on the road and just checking in. Way overcoaching here if Marquette is subbing just for blocking purposes there. Setter is way too good to pull out there. When you get your dig you have one option and their block gets the real advantage.

Number 1 rule of volleyball I was told as a kid... "you've got to make your serves" we convert on even half those long serves in the fifth set and we win

Creighton's blocks were huge late. Seemed like we just didn't have the gas left to get over them and the little flips that worked early weren't as effective. Great match, disappointing result.

Georgia Tech is a tough draw.  And Texas if you win that...woof.

One thing about this bracket that is absolutely blowing my mind is that Stanford's reward for getting a number 1 seed is they get to play Pepperdine in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.  Pepperdine beat Baylor, Washington, and Minnesota this season!  And while they did lose each match against them, they've played BYU and San Diego (a 2 seed in the Tournament) in their conference season, so it's not like they've been playing nobody for the last couple months.

It would be like St. Mary's beating Kentucky, Michigan State, and Auburn in the non-conference, finishing behind a dominant Gonzaga and a really solid USF in conference while taking maybe 1 or two other not ideal losses in conference, and giving them a 16 seed when they should probably be like a 7-10 seed.

Marquette took care of business pretty efficiently last night in a 3 set sweep against Ball State.  They face a tough Georgia Tech squad at 6P tonight at the Al for a chance to go to the Sweet 16.  Go Marquette!!!

The match is on ESPN+ if you are unable to attend and want to follow it (assuming you have an ESPN+ subscription also).

Pretty tough draw.  Elite 8 last year.  Bregmann is unreal.  First Team All American last year and played with Brazil's (one of the top teams in the world) national team this past summer.

Yeah wish I could've watched.  Looks like they dominated, so they must've played really well.  Texas at Texas will be tough!

Wish I could have gone but was able to watch a lot of it.

They looked pretty dominant again tonight - great to see.  Exciting to see them go to the Sweet 16 for the second time ever.  Go Marquette!!!

The Al was awesome tonight. Great first volleyball match for my daughter, though we moved up from our reserved seats to the upper deck because she wanted to dance and I didn't want to be a bother to our neighbors. Straight sets was better than expected. And now we likely get a crack at another top-3 Texas team? We already won that last month. Let's do it again.  8-)

I love that about the Al - always let my girls dance away in the upper section of the Al at basketball games and not bother other people.  Glad it was a great environment tonight. I wasn't expecting a 3 set win for them tonight.

Creighton is in the 5th set right now in their first round match against Auburn.

That surprised me and was disappointed to see it as you said.

All-conference setter didn’t play. Couldn’t overcome it.

How are people watching?  I thought the games were all being shown only on ESPN+, and don't think I'd ever consider getting an ESPN+ subscription.

ESPN+ figured if we keep advancing what's a single month payment before canceling

I've had an ESPN+ subscription for awhile - there are a lot of women's basketball games available on there that I'm interested in.
