Marauders to take on Buckeyes in cross-border volleyball showdown

December 19, 2016

Renewing hostilities for the third-consecutive year, two of the premier men’s volleyball programs in North America meet for a single holiday clash in Hamilton on December 30.

The McMaster Marauders will face the Ohio State Buckeyes at 7 p.m. in Burridge Gym.

Each team has seen success since opening their burgeoning rivalry in 2014, with the Marauders claiming medals in both of the ensuing national championship tournaments, and the Buckeyes winning the 2016 NCAA Division I Championship title in May.

Sweeping a pair of matches against McMaster in 2014, Ohio State was then swept in kind last holiday season, when the Marauders defeated the Buckeyes 3-2 and 3-1 on New Year’s Eve and January 2.

Tickets for the match are available here.
