UTSA will bring a 22-11 overall record to its second national tournament appearance in program history. The Roadrunners' five-set victory a week ago against Central Arkansas propelled them into their first NCAA Tournament in a decade, and they have won of 17 of their last 20 outings.
The Longhorns, 23-5 and currently ranked eighth in the American Volleyball Coaches Association's Top 25 Poll, earned an at-large berth in the 64-team field after finishing second in the Big 12 Conference with an 18-2 mark this fall. The Horns advanced to last year's National Championship Match where they lost to Penn State in five sets.
UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.
That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.
Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
