NCAA College Baseball Tournament 2011 Sets Field Of 64

The TCU Horned Frogs will indeed play fourth-seeded Oral Roberts in the Fort Worth Regional of the 2011 NCAA Baseball Tournament. No. 2 Oklahoma and No. 3 Dallas Baptist completed that section of the bracket, as expected.

The New Mexico Lobos, as expected, wound up as a No. 4 seed in the field of 64, but they will not head to Los Angeles for regional play. They will, as Jeremy Mills projected, head to Tempe and play the No. 1 Arizona State Sun Devils. The Arkansas Razorbacks and the Charlotte 49ers filled out the regional as the No. 2 and the No.3 teams.

Surprisingly, the St. John's Red Storm made the tournament over the LSU Tigers, though finishing second in the Big East helped (LSU finished ninth in the SEC).

The top eight seeds in the tournament are (in descending order): Virginia, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida State, Vanderbilt, Texas and Rice. During the show the head of the selection committee said Texas A&M was not a No. 1 national seed because of the loss of pitcher John Stilson.

Should TCU advance from the Fort Worth Regional, they will play the winner of the Houston Regional (Rice, Baylor, Cal, Alcorn State). If New Mexico pulls the upset, they will advanced to face the winner of the Austin Regional (Texas, Texas State, Kent State, Princeton).
