UNC, NC State among 5 ACC schools selected to host regional

Posted May 26, 2013

Five ACC teams, including both North Carolina and North Carolina State, will play host to NCAA regionals when the tournament begins Friday.

In addition to NC State (44-14) and ACC champion UNC (52-8), Virginia Tech (38-20), Virginia (47-10) and Florida State (44-15) have been selected to host the first round of the NCAA tournament.

The list of the 16 host sites, revealed Sunday night by the NCAA Division I Baseball Committee, does not list national seeds as those will be announced Monday. Each regional field will consist of four teams playing in a double-elimination format.

The five ACC selections leads all conferences. The SEC boasts four regional hosts (LSU, Vanderbilt, Mississippi State and South Carolina) and the Pac 12 will have three hosts (Oregon, Oregon State and UCLA). Louisville out of the Big East, Kansas State out of the Big 12, Indiana out of the Big Ten and Cal State Fullerton out of the Big West round out the sites.

For UNC, this marks the seventh time that they will play host to a regional. It will be the fourth time for NC State. Florida State leads all ACC teams in regionals hosted with 30.

Of the 16 teams selected to host this year, seven were hosts last season including UNC, NC State Virginia and Florida State. The other three are UCLA, LSU and South Carolina. Indiana, Kansas State and Virginia Tech will all be hosting regionals for the first time.

The top-eight seeds and the remaining field of 64 teams in the NCAA tournament will be announced Monday at noon. The tournament begins Friday with the regional round running through Monday.

    Great for the ACC - unfortunate that Campbell did not make the tournament. They won the Big South regular season, made the finals of Big South Tournament,had the fifth highest total number of wins and were ranked as high as 24th in at least one poll last week - the committee picked Coastal Carolina over Campbell - very strange.

    Having five schools in the ACC hosting regional games shows just how great the ACC is in baseball this year. Best of luck to all schools. I'd love to see an ACC school winning it all, but it's a difficult task. Hope this is the year though.

    If State survives the first round, they must fly to Oregon to play in the Super-Regional. That is a pile of crock served up by the NCAA. Oregon is 6-10 against top 50 teams. State is 18-10. Oregon should be flying to Raleigh, assuming State wins this week.

    Once again, the NCAA bows to the political gods. Sad, very sad.

    Is there any way to get rid of this useless organization?

    Hopefully, several of them will survive to host super-regionals.

    Good stuff for the ACC. VT getting a nod is really great. The others were expected.

    Yep...nice to see this. Still have to bring one home (1955) but the ACC is heading in the right direction.

    I think an ACC team will win the title this year!

    Many kudos to you Smitty for this. If we can cut down on mistakes we may win again. Two times we had the bases loaded today, and only scored 1 run. How many times has UNC been in this situation? We had two huge errors in the 8th and UNC scored 2 runs. VT earned this. A 6th seeded VT did pretty well. Go Hokies.
