Eugene, Ore. -- The Oregon volleyball team is headed to the NCAA Tournament for the eighth straight year. But this season the Ducks get home field advantage in the first round for the first time in four years. As a 15 seed, the Ducks are facing a talented Aggies team with great outside hitters. Oregon outside hitter Lindsey Vander Weide spoke to the media Tuesday about getting another opportunity to play at home. She acknowledged senior night left a bad taste in the players’ mouths because of the loss to Colorado. But now the Ducks have a chance to win a tournament game on their court. The problem is Oregon will have to win at home, which something the Ducks haven’t been consistent at this year with a 9-5 overall record in Matthew Knight Arena. Oregon plays New Mexico State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament Thursday night at 7:00.
