The 2001 America East Volleyball Championship will be held November 17-18 at the home court of the No. 1 seed. The semifinals of the four-team tournament are set for Saturday, November 17 with the championship game on Sunday, November 18.
America East member institutions -- University at Albany, University of Hartford, University of Maine, University of New Hampshire, Northeastern University, and Stony Brook University -- along with associate members Drexel University and Towson University will compete for the four championship berths.
The eight teams will each play a 14-game regular-season conference (double round-robin) schedule.
The No. 1 seed plays the No. 4 seed in one semifinal while the No. 2 seed meets the No. 3 seed in the other.
The winner of the America East Championship receives an automatic bid to the NCAA Volleyball Championship.
New Hampshire (1998) and Hartford (1993) are the only current America East members to have won the conference title.
