On This Day in IUPUI History: December 6, 2013

December 6, 2013. 

On this day, the IUPUI women's volleyball team advanced to the NCAA Division I national tournament for the first time. In the tournament, at the Champaign regional, they met the University of Missouri squad, the only undefeated team in the tourney and ranked fourth in the nation. The Jaguars lost in a hard-fought match 25-22, 25-15, 25-18. Missouri advanced to the second round.

The 2013 Jaguars season started slowly but finshed sizzling hot. They claimed ten victories in their last twelve matches to win the Summit League championship and an automatic berth in the national tournament.

The Jaguars women have gone on to continued success on the court.
