The University of Northern Iowa volleyball team has been pegged to finish second in the 2014 preseason Missouri Valley Conference coaches' poll. The Panthers nabbed a pair of first-place votes but came up two points short of favorite Wichita State in the poll.
Panther head coach Bobbi Petersen believes the conference will be very competitive again--but she's thankful the MVC Postseason tournament will be held in Cedar Falls.
"Very pumped that during one of the most competitive conference races needing that conference tournament which is actually our automatic bid to the NCAA tournament is at our home--in front of our home crowd is huge and I thank our administration for doing that which because they don't have but they do it every year."
Last year 4 teams in the MVC won at least 20 matches.
