The Quincy University men’s volleyball team ended the regular season on Sunday night (April 10), after falling to No. 2 Ohio State on the road in Columbus, Ohio.
The Hawks (18-22, 4-12 MIVA) and Buckeyes (25-3, 15-1 MIVA) had already sealed their Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association Tournament bids earlier in the weekend.
Quincy locked in the No. 7 seed. QU will play No. 2-seed and two-time defending national champion Loyola-Chicago in the MIVA Tournament quarterfinal for the fourth straight year.
On Sunday, the Hawks played the Buckeyes tight for most of the match as OSU out-hit QU.
The Bucks fought back and took a lead before the Hawks deadlock with a hot service run.
The Hawks never led in Set 3 as the Buckeyes pulled away for the win.
The Hawks will play three-time defending MIVA champion Loyola-Chicago in the MIVA Tournament quarterfinal, which is tentatively set for Friday (April 15) at Gentile Arena in Chicago.
