The NCAA Softball Tournament pairings are released tonight. We had a bad loss against the ultimate Big Ten Tournament winner, Wiskey, in the Semis. It will be interesting to see if we drop out of the top 8.
The NCAA selects 64 teams. The top 16 get to host the Regionals. Each Regional host site will be assigned 3 additional teams primarily based on geography although not in all cases. Each team will be seeded 1-4 in the Region based on their overall RPI ranking.
Each Regional Host is seeded 1-16, so the #1 seed will play the #16 seed provided each wins their Regional. The higher seed is the host site for the Super Regional. Both the Regional and Super Regional are double elimination formats.
