The 2001 NCAA Men's Volleyball Tournament was the 32nd annual tournament to determine the national champion of NCAA men's collegiate indoor volleyball. The single elimination tournament was played at The Pyramid in Long Beach, California during May 2001.


BYU defeated UCLA in the final match, 3–0 (30–26, 30–26, 32–30), to win their second national title. The Cougars (23–4) were coached by Carl McGown.

BYU's Mike Wall was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player. Wall, along with five other players, comprised the All-Tournament Team.


Until the creation of the NCAA Men's Division III Volleyball Championship in 2012, there was only a single national championship for men's volleyball. As such, all NCAA men's volleyball programs, whether from Division I, Division II, or Division III, were eligible. A total of 4 teams were invited to contest this championship.


The rules were modified this year so that teams needed to score 30 points, rather than 15, to win each individual set. However, teams still needed to win three sets, of five, to win each match.
