The NCAA announced Wednesday that IPFW and the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum have been named a finalist to host a Men's Volleyball National Championship between 2015 and 2018. The other finalists are Brigham Young, UCLA, IPFW, Ohio State, Penn State, USC and Stanford.The three-person NCAA men's volleyball committee selected the finalists from the 21 bids submitted to the committee earlier this month. Among the factors used to determine the winning sites included the arena to play the postseason matches, a proposed budget and how the host site planned to enhance the student-athlete and fan experience at the event.

All seven finalists for an upcoming men's volleyball NCAA Tournament have previously hosted the event. IPFW previously hosted the event in 1988, 1994 and 2000. At the time, Fort Wayne's attendance in the 1994 tournament set the NCAA record.

The winning sites are scheduled to be announced Dec. 11.
