The NCAA has announced the 16 regional hosts. Here they are, by conference:
ACC (4): Florida State, Miami, North Carolina, North Carolina State
Big 12 (3): Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M
Big West (2): Cal State Fullerton, Long Beach State
Pac-10 (2): Arizona State, Stanford
SEC (2): Georgia, Louisiana State
Big South (1): Coastal Carolina
Big Ten (1): Michigan
Conference USA (1): Rice
The most surprising omission was Texas, which won the Big 12 tournament and has a strong RPI (21). I pegged Coastal Carolina for a No. 1 seed at either Georgia Tech or North Carolina State (I figured it would be at Georgia Tech), but both the Chanticleers and the fourth ACC team will host.
We’ll have much more on this announcement after the NCAA’s conference call at 7:30 ET, and we’ll have our projected field of 64 teams later this evening.
