The bracket for volleyball's 2011 NCAA Tournament was announced on Sunday evening and Craig Skinner's Kentucky Wildcats earned their seventh consecutive berth.

UK (26-5) will face Dayton (25-6) in the first round on Thursday, Dec. 1 in College Station, Texas with a potential matchup with future Southeastern Conference rival and No. 16 national seed Texas A&M (22-7) looming in the second round. With a top-15 RPI, UK submitted a bid to be one of 16 schools to host first and second round games, but will instead make the trek to the Lone Star State.

Should UK advance, they will return home to Lexington, Ky., as Kentucky's Sweet 16 and Elite Eight games would be held in Memorial Coliseum.

The Wildcats were one of three teams from the SEC to reach the tournament, along with conference champion Tennessee and Florida.
