The Creighton men’s soccer team earned a spot in the NCAA Tournament for the 21st time in 22 seasons when pairings were announced on on Monday.

Creighton (9-8-2) will host Western Athletic Conference Champion Seattle (10-8-4) in a first-round match in the 48-team tournament on Thursday at 7 p.m. The winner of Thursday’s match will travel to No. 2 seed Washington on Sunday at 7 p.m. in Seattle.

Creighton, 7-1-1 at home this season, is 11-1-0 all-time in NCAA Tournament matches played at Morrison Stadium.

The Jays were one of five Big East squads to make the 2013 NCAA field joining No. 6 seed Georgetown, No. 9 seed Marquette, Providence and St. John’s. CU owns a 2-4-2 record against fellow NCAA Tourney teams this season.

The Jays came into Selection Monday at No. 17 nationally in the latest RPI released by the NCAA on Nov. 11. The Bluejays’ at-large selection is their first since 2010 after CU claimed Missouri Valley Conference tournament titles resulting in automatic bids in each of its final two seasons in the league.
