12 of the 16 Seeds advanced including the only ACC Seeded team North Carolina, all 3 Seeded PAC12 teams, 5 of the 6 Seeded Big 10 teams, the only Seeded WCC team, just 1 of the 2 seeded SEC schools, and just 1 of 3 Seeded Big12 schools. The non seeded teams who knocked off seeds on their home court included ACC FSU who beat 11th seeded Florida, PAC12 Arizona who beat 9th Seeded Michigan State, Big East Creighton who beat 5th Seeded Kansas, and Ohio State who beat 14th Seeded Kansas State. All the unseeded teams beat the seeded teams in 5 sets.

Pittsburgh the other ACC team won their 1st round but lost to seeded Penn State. Hopefully the ACC continues to show well so more ACC teams qualify next year. Hopefully ND can make the NCAAs next year.
