ASU, Arizona Earn National Seeds to NCAA Softball Tourney

For the 14th-straight season, Alabama softball has earned a top-16 national seed and will host an NCAA regional as the No. 12 overall seed, welcoming Wisconsin, Oregon State and Middle Tennessee State to Tuscaloosa. Sixteen teams will advance to the NCAA Super Regional on May 24-27.

The Seminoles have faced a total of 10 teams in the 2018 NCAA Tournament field, posting a combined record of 14-7, including wins over the top two national seeds - No. 1 OR and No. 2 Florida.

Game 5: G3 loser vs. G4 victor, 5 p.m.

9 national seed, opens against UNC Greensboro (46-11) at 7:30 p.m. Friday. UNCG's baseball team has clinched its regular-season title and will be the No. 1 seed in the league tournament beginning May 22 in Greenville, S.C.

The Huskies (44-8) will host a regional starting with Boise State at 8:30 p.m. Friday at Husky Softball Stadium. The SEC led the way with 13 entrants.

The host school for the regional is No. 10 Tennessee.

Randolph-Macon is the No. 1 seed and CNU the No. 4 seed in an NCAA regional that will be held in North Carolina.

This year's Bobcat team, however, holds the best record (38-15, 20-3 MAC) going into the NCAA Tournament.

"When it comes to postseason, you kind of don't know where you stand especially since we didn't perform like we wanted to this year", catcher Courtney Shea said.

Jacksonville State earned their tournament spot by winning the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament. The Lady Vols rebounded to close the regular season with four straight series victories.

After losing the opening game on Wednesday, the Lady Panthers began moving through the loser's bracket to championship glory. The event concludes Sunday with one game at noon, and another at 2:30 p.m. if necessary.
