USC sand volleyball will host a three-day four-team tournament this weekend featuring Florida State, Long Beach State and Pepperdine at the Annenberg Beach House in Santa Monica.

Fuller-LMU-PC.jpgThe Women of Troy knocked off Loyola Marymount in their program opening dual match last week, but this is their first look at the tournament format. 

On Friday, the pairs will break into five pools of four teams to determine seeding for Sunday's single elimination bracket that will crown the pairs champion.  Saturday will be double elimination flight play to determine a team champion.

The tournament field is loaded with indoor volleyball power programs.  In the final AVCA poll, Pepperdine finished No. 6, Florida State No. 7 and Long Beach State No. 27.

Despite the poor weather forecast, the competition is expected to proceed as scheduled.
