UL Softball Projected To Play In Baton Rouge
Louisiana's Ragin' Cajun softball team remains a #2-seed in the final projections for the 2018 NCAA Regionals.
These are the final projections before the NCAA Tournament field is announced on Sunday night.
Louisiana, who is currently 38-14, overall, is being projected as the #2-seed in the Baton Rouge Regional by College Sports Madness.
Officially, there are no 2-4 seeds in the NCAA Regionals. The NCAA only recognizes the top seed. But we can all easily figure it out.
The tournament field will be released at 9 pm tonight.
Louisiana will almost certainly be making their 20th-consecutive NCAA Regional appearance, including their 28th in the last 29 years.
The only year since 1990 in which Louisiana failed to appear in a regional was 1998.
If the Cajuns are indeed a #2-seed, it would mark the second-consecutive year that would be the case, after hosting three-straight years, in which they were the top seed, from 2014-2016.
Louisiana has had a lot of success in postseason play, advancing to Super Regional play for 5-straight years, prior to last season.
These are projections, and nothing more; after all, Louisiana is being projected to go to a fifth different site in as many weeks, so anything can happen. That being said, I think the site has done a really good job of coming up with a realistic projection.
The Cajuns are projected as the second-seed in the Baton Rouge Regional, along with the top-seeded LSU, DePaul, and North Dakota St.
Of note, Texas St. is the only other Sun Belt Conference school, besides UL, projected in the field, while McNeese is the only other state school, other than Louisiana and LSU, projected in the field of 64.
