Sun Devil Volleyball releases 2013 schedule

June 18, 2013

Arizona State University volleyball has released its 2013 schedule, which includes 16 matches selected to be televised on the Pac-12 Network. The first televised match will be the Pac-12 Conference opener at home on Sept. 24 against Arizona.

The Sun Devils return 2012 Pac-12 All-Conference first teamer Macey Gardner and add an incoming freshman class that ranks 13th nationally. ASU made an appearance in the NCAA Tournament last season and in 2013 will face eight opponents that also made it to the postseason one year ago.  Download Full Image

“I think this is a nice blend for our team. Clearly, we have some challenges in the non-conference schedule,” head coach Jason Watson said. “Those challenges will prepare us for an increasingly competitive Pac-12 Schedule. The margins will be thin for our team, yet I am eager to see us respond to a competitive 2013 schedule.”

The team will open the season on Aug. 30 at Utah Valley University’s tournament followed by two additional road tournaments before the home opener in Tempe on Sept. 20 in the ASU Marriott Invitational. ASU will play in tournaments at Gonzaga Sept. 6-7 and at Illinois Sept. 12-13. 

ASU will face Alabama State, Louisiana-Monroe (ULM) and Cal Poly in the Marriott Invitational from Sept. 20-21. Three days later the Sun Devils host in-state rival Arizona on the Pac-12 Network at 8 p.m. PT on Sept. 24 to open Pac-12 action.
