Troy headed to Georgia for NCAA baseball regional as No. 3 seed

Troy headed to Georgia for NCAA baseball regional as No. 3 seed

There was none of that Monday.

Head coach Monte Lee touted his teams resume as a national seed over the last week.

Tristan Pompey, one of Kentucky's top hitters, was drafted in the 31st round by the Minnesota Twins in 2015 but chose to play at United Kingdom instead. Clemson is the No. 10 overall seed in the tournament. FSU is 4-6 against Mississippi State, 2-1 against Oklahoma and 2-0 against Samford in the postseason.

"It's business as usual".

Drew Mendoza came up big for the second consecutive year, and Florida State took home another Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Championship trophy. They're going to be an awfully tough test. "Some of the regionals look very strong, some of them don't look very strong at all, and unfortunately in our sport they do a lot of things based upon money". St. John's is in it year in and year out. 'Good.' That's the way we'll approach it. United Kingdom also scored non-conference victories against four other teams that made the field of 64 - Houston, Louisville, Morehead State and Indiana. "All 64 teams (finally) announced and we were excited and ready to get after it". The Bulldogs are the No. 8 national seed. The Seminoles needed 10 innings to top the Cardinals in Durham, 11-8.

It had been almost two decades since an Atlantic Coast Conference team won back-to-back ACC Baseball Tournament championships. It's also the ninth time the Gators have been a top-eight national seed in coach Kevin O'Sullivan's 11 seasons. Stetson's a little bit of a surprise, but we're happy. A maximum of two Pac-12 teams can make it to Omaha as Stanford and Washington could also meet in the super regionals. "I think that's the next step", Lee said.

As the NCAA Baseball Tournament bracket was unveiled Monday afternoon, the Seahawks learned their destination and opponents - a trip to Greenville for a matchup with East Carolina at 7 p.m. Friday, followed by a game with either No. 2 SC or No. 3 Ohio State.

"That's our big focus right now. We eventually got it".

UConn hosted a regional in 2010, the year it won a school record 48 games.

"A lot of teams peak at the wrong time of the year", Raleigh said. Again, we can't control the decisions that are made there. "We had a great regular season". Something I thought of yesterday was that while we weren't celebrating at the airport, and it was a tough loss, hopefully that'll keep an edge to us. "We know we're never out of any game".
