Colorado State University is back in the NCAA volleyball tournament for the 25th straight year.

The No. 11-ranked Rams (29-1) will face South Carolina (19-11) at 6 p.m. Friday in Seattle at Alaska Airlines Arena in the first round of the 2019 NCAA tournament.

The winner faces the victor of Winthrop and Washington in the second round at 6 p.m. on Saturday.

The Division I bracket includes 64 teams.

CSU — the Mountain West Conference Champions — has won 28 matches in a row.  The Rams only loss on the season came on Aug. 31 against Cal in the Ram Volleyball Classic.

"We call this the third season, the postseason," said senior setter Katie Oleksak in a press release. "It's a grind because it's so fun and it's so different, because you're playing new people. I think it will be very good, especially with this group of seniors."
