Memorial Coliseum is one of four sites for an NCAA Volleyball Regional in 2011. This marks the first time in school history that the University of Kentucky and the city of Lexington will host an NCAA Regional.

The NCAA Regional site is a designated location for one of the eight NCAA Sweet Sixteen matchups and then one of the four Elite Eight matches.

Memorial Coliseum has played host to the NCAA First and Second Rounds in two of the last three seasons. In total UK has hosted the First and Second Rounds of the NCAA tournament on eight occasions beginning in 1983.

The Wildcats have made six consecutive NCAA tournament appearances and are one of just 18 schools in the country to achieve that feat. Skinner is the first coach in school history to lead his team to six post-season appearances. In 2009, Kentucky advanced to the NCAA Regional in Minneapolis for the first time under Skinner after winning two matches in Lexington - including an upset of the tournament's No. 13 overall seed in Oregon.
