Kelly Sheffield is not happy that the early rounds of the Women’s NCAA Volleyball Tournament are not being broadcast on TV.

Sheffield, who coaches the defending champion Wisconsin Badgers, mentioned that “over a half million people” watched one of the Badger’s regular season games, but the initial tournament games were not on TV. “Right now I can watch boys high school & college women’s regular season basketball games on TV, but no tournament VB matches,” said Sheffield. “Epic fail!”

Sheffield’s Badgers went 25-3 in the regular season, including ending the season on an 18-match winning streak. The Badgers earned one of the four No. 1 seeds in the tournament.

The sport of volleyball has certainly shown signs of growth, at least around the B1G, in 2022 but this is another sign there is still work to be done to maximize the sport’s potential. We’ll see how the tournament shapes up and whether or not Sheffield and the Badgers can claim another title.
