WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Purdue Sports) — Earning the No. 16 overall seed, the Purdue volleyball team is set to host the NCAA Tournament first and second round matches on Belin Court for the first time since 2011.

On Sunday evening, the NCAA announced that Purdue will play host to Dayton, Marquette and Wright State. Matches will take place at 4:30 p.m. ET and 7 p.m. Friday with Dayton and Marquette facing off in the first contest, and Wright State battling Purdue in the second. The winners of Friday's matches will meet in a 7 p.m. Saturday contest. All matches will take place on Belin Court at Holloway Gymnasium on the campus of Purdue University.

Friday's match will mark the first program meeting between the Boilermakers and the Raiders, while Purdue is 2-0 against Marquette, last meeting the Golden Eagles in 2002. The Boilermakers are 3-4 against Dayton, having not faced the Flyers since 2009.

Overall, Purdue has never lost in the first match of the NCAA Tournament and boasts a 29-20 overall post season record, including a 23-13 showing under head coach Dave Shondell. Under his guidance, the program has seen seven Sweet 16 appearances as well as two trips to the Elite Eight. This is Purdue's 21st NCAA Tournament appearance in program history.

The Boilermakers have also hosted NCAA Tournament matches nine previous times (1981, 1982, 1983, 1987, 2006, 2008 , 2010 2011 and 2012). Purdue last hosted the opening rounds at Holloway in 2011, while Mackey Arena played host to the Sweet Sixteen in 2012.
