A-10 2010 Championship Central

CINCINNATI - Xavier University's Cintas Center is set to be the host site of the 2010 Atlantic 10 Volleyball Conference Championship. The tournament will be held November 19-21, 2010 in Cincinnati, with the top six teams in the conference competing.

"We are excited about the opportunity to host the A-10 Championship," said Xavier head volleyball coach Mike Johnson. "Selfishly, we relish the opportunity to play such an important series of matches in front of our home crowd. Beyond that though, we are thrilled that the Atlantic 10 will have the opportunity to showcase itself to the rest of the country through the lens of one of the best venues and cities in America.

This is just the second time in school history that Xavier has been chosen to host this event. The Musketeers were first granted this honor in 2002. Over the past decade, the Musketeers have made it to the tournament semifinals times, capturing the title in 2001.

The first quarterfinal match begins Friday, November 19 at 5:00 p.m. with the second match starting directly after. The semifinals will take place on Saturday, November 20 at 5:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Sunday's Championship match will be aired live on CBS College Sports at 3:00 p.m.

Tickets for the tournament are being sold by the Xavier box office in one- and three-day passes. Adult tickets are $6 and $15 (three-day pass), youth $4, and for any A-10 student with an ID, $3. Group tickets (10 or more) are also available for $3. For ticket information, contact the Xavier Ticket Office at (513) 745-3411 or email at edelbrockk@xavier.edu.
