Florida State now knows what the field looks like to return to the NCAA Beach Volleyball final. The NCAA Tournament’s field of eight teams was unveiled on Sunday and the Seminoles will be the No. 4 seed.

FSU was the top seed in last year’s tournament, but was ultimately defeated by USC in the national championship match. The Seminoles will open the tournament this year against No. 5 seed Hawaii at 10 a.m. EST in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

FSU comes in with a record of 27-7. The Seminoles won the CCSA Tournament last week, going a perfect 6-0 in Emerson, Georgia, which was capped with a 3-0 victory over Florida International.

Joining FSU and Hawaii in the double-elimination field are No. 1 seed and defending national champion USC, No. 2 seed UCLA, third-seeded Pepperdine, No. 6 seed Long Beach State, seventh-seeded LSU and No. 8 seed South Carolina.

FSU was 7-7 against teams that made the field this season. All matches will be shown on Turner Sports Networks, which include TruTV, TNT and TBS.
