Florida State Tournament Central (Live Video and GameTracker)

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The University of Cincinnati volleyball team will look to continue the trend of upsets in the NCAA tournament so far when it takes on No. 21 and host Florida State tonight at 6:00 p.m. for the second round.

The Bearcats are coming off a five-set victory over Samford. Jordanne Scott (19), Emily Hayden (15), Missy Harpenau (13) and Becca Refenes (11) all put up double-digit kill performances last night and will look to lead the team's offense against the Seminoles.

Sophomore libero Emily MacIntyre recorded 27 digs and brought her season average to 4.07 per set. Freshman Caylin Mahoney set a match-high 56 assists in the win.

Florida State dominated the Great Danes of Albany in the first round in straight sets. Jekaterina Stepanova led the match with 16 kills and a .467 hitting percentage. Visnja Djurdjevic followed with 11 kills of her own.

First serve is set for 6:00 p.m. at Tully Gymnasium on the campus of Florida State.
