After the NM State volleyball team marched through the first two rounds of the postseason tournament, the Aggies' first season in Conference USA came to a close Nov. 19 at the hands of top-seeded Western Kentucky, the 22nd-ranked team in the country.
The tournament was held in Lynchburg, Virginia.
The Aggies defeated Louisiana Tech 3-0 Nov. 17, and Florida International 3-1 on Nov. 18.
The Aggies' potential final record is 21-10 after an eight-match winning streak was snapped in the championship. WKU extended its winning streak to 24 and clinched an automatic bid to next month's NCAA Tournament. The Hilltoppers are 29-4, and won their eighth tournament championship in 10 years as CUSA members.
