  • LSU softball wins Game 1 of Super Regional over Florida State

During the 2017-18 campaign, 15 schools sent a men's team to a bowl game in football, the NCAA Basketball Tournament and the NCAA Baseball Tournament.

"We do believe we can go into a regional setting in this one and play well and come out on top".

- Postseason baseball is coming to eastern North Carolina.

Several SEC squads missed out on the list by only one sport, so this time next year, it could be the SEC leading the balanced effort.

Offensively, Liam McGill (.319 batting average, 6 home runs, 30 RBI), Joe Engle (.316-1-29), Randell Kanemaru (.296-4-16) and Chandler Bengtson (.257-10-31) set the tone.

The hopes for an NCAA Tournament berth was a long shot.

SC baseball is going dancing in Greenville, North Carolina, it learned Monday, as the NCAA tournament selection committee named the Gamecocks a No. 2 seed in East Carolina's regional.

Auburn tied for fourth nationally in wins against RPI top-50 teams (19) and had the fewest losses against teams with RPIs 51 and above, going 20-2 in those games. It will host a four-team regional this week at Conrad Park in DeLand, Florida, where it is 29-3 this season.




The only other one of those sites Auburn has played a Regional at before is Clemson, where it swept four games on its way to the 1994 College World Series.

Despite not making it a year ago, the Gamecocks earned an at-large bid to the tournament after the selection show Monday.

The Tigers are paired with No. 8 national seed Florida St.

FSU (43-17), which won the ACC Tournament on Sunday, will host a regional for the 35th time in program history.

This is the second NCAA Tournament berth in three years for the Gamecocks, who advanced all the way to the Super Regionals in 2016 before losing to Oklahoma State.

The 6-foot-8 Cofer was a key player in the Seminoles' run to the Elite Eight in the NCAA Tournament this past season. We've got Penn State, they're from our part of the country, they've played in Omaha, they've played in our regional, so we know how good they are.

Florida State is once again playing its best baseball late in the season - and, for that matter, late in games. The eight winners advancing from the Super Regional competitions will compete in two four-team double elimination brackets to determine the bracket champions.
