It's Columbia For Baseball, Too

NC State will open with third-seeded Charlotte.

Head coach Elliott Avent and the NC State baseball program picked up its fifth-straight NCAA Tournament bid on Monday, May 28, as the bracket field was announced live on ESPN. The Pack, which will be taking part in the Big Dance for the 17th time in the last 22 years, will stand as the No. 2 seed at the Columbia, S.C. regional, hosted by South Carolina.

The Niners compiled an impressive record while steamrolling through a weak Atlantic 10 so it's hard to know what to make of them. Their strength of schedule ranks somewhere in the bottom third of I-A; find their season stats here.

[Update: 5-29-07 4:15PM: I'd been pointing to the wrong strength of schedule link; that's fixed.]
