2018 NAIA Volleyball National Championship Pools Announced – Raiders may have caught a break

@SOURaiders @RaiderVB @MylaNorvell @elli_cook

#10 SOU landed in a pool with #7 Viterbo, #23 Jamestown, and unranked Saint Xavier. The top two teams advance. Being the second highest ranked team, according to the coaches, is nice, and having no top ranked teams in the pool is nicer. However, if you look at Massey Ratings, usually a better indicator than the coaches, things get even better.

Massey has Southern Oregon at #9, Viterbo at #13, Jamestown at #18 (behind both College of Idaho and Eastern Oregon–two teams the Raiders have defeated), and Saint Xavier at #34. SOU’s odds of advancing to the final 16 look promising.

Pool play begins November 27.
