Eugene, Ore. -- The Oregon volleyball team is headed to the NCAA Tournament for the eighth straight year. But this season the Ducks get home field advantage in the first round for the first time in four years. As a 15 seed, the Ducks are facing a talented Aggies team with great outside hitters. Oregon middle blocker Ronika Stone spoke to the media Tuesday about the challenges of playing at home versus away. Oregon will have to win at home, which something the Ducks haven’t been consistent at this year with a 9-5 overall record in Matthew Knight Arena. Oregon plays New Mexico State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament Thursday night at 7:00.
