Men’s Volleyball Looking to Advance to the Final Four

The Penn State men’s volleyball team is only one game away from another Final Four.

After defeating Princeton 3-0 (25-20, 25-17, 25-23) on Thursday, the Nittany Lions will take on 3-seed Harvard for the EIVA title and an automatic bid to the NCAA Final Four. Should they emerge victorious, the Nittany Lions will advance to their 15th straight Final Four.

Semifinals Recap:

Penn State advanced to the finals by defeating 4th seeded Princeton, behind a dominating performance from Aaron Russell (21 kills, 4 aces). Nick Goodell (14 kills) had a great night as well. The win gave Penn State a 3-0 season sweep of the Tigers.

What’s next?

Penn State will play Harvard for the EIVA championship tonight at 7 p.m. in Rec Hall. Harvard defeated #2 George Mason 3-2 (25-23, 26-28, 17-25, 25-22, 19-17) on Thursday. The Crimson were lead by sophomore Caleb Zimmick (13 kills, 7 blocks) and junior Nick Madden (16 kills). Penn State and Harvard split the season series, with the Nittany Lions winning 3-2, and the Crimson snapping Penn State’s 51-match EIVA winning streak, 3-0. The Nittany Lions’ win did come in Rec Hall, so they will look to homecourt advantage tonight to continue their season.

If you can’t make it out to Rec Hall for the match, it will be streamed live here.
