The NCAA made the expected official a few minutes ago. Arkansas will not host a baseball regional in the upcoming NCAA Tournament.
LSU, Ole Miss and Florida are the three SEC schools selected to host this go-around. Arkansas beat Florida twice in the SEC Tournament this weekend and has won all five games this season against the Gators. The good news is that the Razorbacks, despite an 11-1 loss to Vandy in the semifinals, seems to have re-discovered their mojo just in time for regionals.
As for where Arkansas may land as a two-seed, here are the closest sites:
Texas (40-13-1), Austin, Texas
TCU (36-16), Fort Worth, Texas
Oklahoma (41-18), Norman, Okla
Mississippi (40-17), Oxford, Miss
The Hogs will find out exactly where they’re going Monday at 11:30 a.m., when the NCAA selections are made public on ESPN. [read more]
