Aggie volleyball wins WAC Championship, headed to 2012 NCAA Tournament

One word to describe NMSU's first-place finish in the WAC Volleyball Tournament: Huge.

We've said it before — the Aggie volleyball team is currently the school's most consistent in terms of competing for and winning conference championships. That's six in 15 years for head coach Mike Jordan (there would have been more, as well, if not for national power Hawaii being a part of the WAC for many years).

The Aggies will take any good piece of news they can get in what's been a tough fall season for the athletics department. But this also signifies NMSU's third NCAA Tournament berth in the past calendar year: Men’s basketball qualified last March, baseball last May and now volleyball in late November. Such victories indicate a good balance.

One and done Teddy.4th place WAC team with no talent and poorly coached and with that crappy RPI they will probably face a top team right out of the gate.

The trophy given at the WAC Tournament says WAC Tournament Champs the claim that the Aggies are the WAC Champs is false. Utah State is the WAC Champs NMS is the Tournament Champs.

It seems like a waste of time and money all these post season tournaments.

Why not just a NCAA Tournament between the Top 10 teams in the Poll and eliminate all these little rinky dink programs.
