NCAA volleyball tournament 2022: Scores, schedule, bracket


The 2022 NCAA volleyball tournament began Thursday afternoon and will crown a champion later this month.

Texas, which earned the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament, swept the first two rounds as it looks for its first national championship since 2012. Meanwhile, defending champion Wisconsin, also a 1-seed, swept Quinnipiac and TCU to reach the Sweet 16.

With the final four (Dec. 15-17) returning to Omaha, Nebraska, will the Huskers win it in their home state? Can 1-seed Louisville or 2-seed Pittsburgh become the first ACC team to win a national title? Can second-seeded San Diego continue its Cinderella season? Can Stanford win its fourth title since 2016?

So far, 48 of the 63 games in the NCAA tournament have been played. But next weekend will determine who will be playing for a national title and who will be watching.

We update you with the scores and schedule for this year’s NCAA tournament. The regional semifinals will take place on Thursday and the regional finals will be played Saturday.
