    Story

    Softball Sent Packing For NCAA Regional
    05/12/02




    BATON ROUGE -- After winning the Southeastern Conference regular season and tournament championships, being ranked third in the nation for the better half of the season and in the top five throughout, the LSU softball team will travel to Lafayette, La., to face Northwestern State in the first game of the NCAA Regional Championship on Thursday.

    According to the pairings released on www.ncaachampionships.com, none of the nation's top eight seeds will play host to a regional.

    LSU (53-9), the third seed in the 48-team tournament and the top seed in the Lafayette region, is paired with Arizona State, UL-Lafayette, Massachusetts, Mississippi State and Northwestern State.

    Top-seeded UCLA travels to Columbia, S.C., No. 2 seed Arizona heads to Minneapolis, Minn., No. 4 seed Cal State Fullerton goes to Fresno State, No. 5 seed Texas plays in conference-rival Oklahoma's hometown, No. 6 Washington travels to Ann Arbor, Mich., No. 7 Nebraska moves on to Iowa City, Iowa, and No. 8 Florida Atlantic has to cross the state to Tallahassee, Fla.

    According to the NCAA website: "Seeded teams were placed in the bracket, and the remaining selected teams were placed in their most proximate geographic regions. The committee maintained the ability to balance the bracket and/or avoid first-round (defined as the first three games of the regional tournament) conference match-ups by moving a team to another region when necessary, but flights could not be created in doing so.

    "Top-seeded teams were not guaranteed to host a regional because site selection was based on geographic location."

    Teams advancing to the Women's College World Series (WCWS), May 23-27 at the Amateur Sports Association's (ASA) Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, will be advanced into the WCWS bracket according to the overall regional seeding (i.e., regional No. 1 winner will be seed No.1).

    Please check back later for the complete story.

    Yeah, all top seeds were punished. But, fortunately for LSU, they are geographically closest to home of all the top seeds.

    Florida Atlantic is also very close, as is Cal St.-Fullerton (I think-- not really sure where Fullerton is).

    So, of all the top seeds, at least LSU will be able to retain its fan base in the regionals, which will give them a lot of momentum to get back to the Women's College World Series this year. Also, they will be one of the favorites to win it all when they do. Hopefully some of those Pac-10 teams fall in the regionals. They kicked LSU's butts in the WCWS last year.
