NCAA Tournament rally scoring era record book

Off the Block in an effort to preserve the history of college men’s volleyball has compiled the first record book for the Division I-II NCAA Tournament during the 25-point rally scoring era. While the current NCAA championship record book includes all matches since the inaugural tournament in 1970, this new record book reflects the game in the modern era. College men’s volleyball changed from side-out scoring to rally scoring in 2001. The NCAA beginning in the 2011 season changed the length of a regulation game from 30 points to 25 points. These changes drastically decreased the length of matches. As a result, the 25-point rally scoring era NCAA Tournament record book provides a more accurate comparison for outstanding individual and team performances in the current scoring era of the NCAA Tournament.
