The Long Beach State beach volleyball team’s season will continue after making it to the 8-team NCAA National Beach Volleyball Tournament in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

LBSU, who lost to Hawai’i in the Big West tournament final, will be the No. 6-seed in the tournament and will face No. 3 Pepperdine Friday at 10 a.m.

This will be the third time the team will face Pepperdine. The Waves defeated LBSU 3-2 March 16 and 3-2 April 5.

The 49ers (26-8) will be competing in its first NCAA Championship since beach volleyball was recognized by the NCAA last season.

LBSU has been to Gulf Shores on three separate occasions for the AVCA National Championship banner during the “emerging sports” phase.

The entire NCAA Tournament will be televised on multiple platforms.

The opening round of matches will be broadcast through NCAA.com. On Friday and Saturday TruTV will have the daily coverage before the championship game will be live on TBS at 11 a.m. Sunday.
