OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The Creighton volleyball team begins NCAA Tournament play at home Friday against South Dakota. CU setter Madelyn Cole could be key to the Jays' postseason success. The Marshall transfer led the BIG EAST this season averaging 10.89 assists per set.

"It's probably exceeded my expectations," said Cole. "I'm just enjoying the moment right now and telling my mom every little detail & just really soaking everything in."

"It's been a great fit," said head coach Kirsten Bernthal Booth. "I attribute that to the other women around her. I think Madelyn's a great kid but we have great culture. I think that enveloped her and made her feel welcome."

Friday's match starts at 6 p.m. at DJ Sokol Arena.
