UNCG softball team to face SC on Friday in NCAA tournament

The New Mexico State softball team is set play in the Tempe Regional of the NCAA Softball Championship, the NCAA announced on Sunday.

OH and James Madison open the regional on Friday at 3 p.m., followed by Tennessee vs. Monmouth at 5:30.

The Wildcats finished the regular season at 40-14, with a 13-11 record in Pac-12 play. South Carolina, which is hosting the regional, is 45-14.

The last time the Tigers went on the road for a Regional in 2014, they lost the decisive final game to host Minnesota.

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. The team would then face the victor out of the College Station Regional.

Oregon, Florida, UCLA, Washington, Florida State, Georgia and Arizona State grabbed the other spots in the coveted top-8 national seeds. The Sooners will also play Tulsa, who was just three outs from ending the Sooners' season at last year's NCAA Regionals. All of the top-8 seeds will have the opportunity to host super regionals should they advance out of the first weekend.

"Its a big thing that we are a three seed, we're not a four seed", Danielle Stiene said.

The Bobcats first game will be against James Madison on Friday at 3 p.m.

Oklahoma State (38-20) received an at-large bid. Missoiuri was the only team not able to qualify for the conference tournament, a single-elimination bracket ironically hosted on Missouri's home field in Columbia this season. Individual session tickets are $15 and are on sale at ticketmaster.com.
