Off the Block’s bracketology is updated daily and uses the same criteria as the selection committee to make its NCAA Tournament projections. In addition, Off the Block each week on its website unveils a more detailed NCAA Tournament projection and advanced data about how teams fare in every criteria category.
The men’s volleyball Division I-II NCAA Tournament is comprised of six teams. Automatic bids are awarded to the winners of the Conference Carolinas, EIVA, MIVA and MPSF conference tournaments, and the NCAA men’s volleyball committee selects two teams for at-large bids.
Off the Block is in its seventh season of college men’s volleyball bracketology. In previous seasons, it has accurately projected 93 percent of the teams in the NCAA Tournament field.
