MADISON, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) Three Wisconsin teams were among 64 named last night to the N-C-A-A women's volleyball tournament. 

The Wisconsin Badgers will host a four-team sub-regional in the first two rounds.  They'll open against U-W Milwaukee on Friday night at the Field House in Madison.  Also, Marquette will play on Friday night against Louisville in a sub-regional at Champaign Illinois. 

The Badgers' volleyball squad earned its first national tournament berth since 2007, as an at-large pick with a 23-and-9 record.  They'll face a Milwaukee team that won both the Horizon League regular season and conference titles with an 18-and-10 overall mark.  The winner will play either North Carolina or California on Saturday night. 

 Marquette is 25-and-5 overall with a 14-match winning streak.  They're in the N-C-A-A's for the third straight time, after winning the Big East's automatic bid.  Marquette will take on a Louisville team that's 23-and-7.  The winner will face Illinois or Moorhead State on Saturday night.
