Creighton volleyball's Cinderella run through the NCAA Tournament ends in the Elite Eight, as the Jays fall to 4th-seeded Texas in straight sets Saturday night in Austin, TX.

Playing in its first NCAA Regional final in school history, Creighton fell behind early in the first set and could never muster a comeback like the Bluejays have all tournament long.  Creighton was led by Jaali Winters with 11 kills and 8 digs tonight.

Texas advances to the Final Four for the fifth straight season and will meet the top seed, Nebraska, on Thursday in Columbus, OH.
