Pac-12 announces China-bound all-star women's volleyball team

The Pac-12 Conference announced today an all-star team of Pac-12 women's volleyball student-athletes that will represent the conference in China in June. The team's six-game tour will consist of matches against some of the top professional volleyball club teams in China as well as the chance to experience the cultural history of the country. The team will be led by legendary USC head coach Mick Haley, who was named the 2011 Pac-12 women's volleyball Coach of the Year. "This type of tour can be a transformative moment for our student-athletes," said Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott. "In addition to the competition on the court, they will return to their teams with a meaningful life experience of visiting another country and learning more about another culture."
