2022 NCAA Baseball Tournament regional sites announced

·1 min read

LSU entered this week’s SEC Tournament in Hoover squarely in the hunt to host a regional in the NCAA Tournament, which begins this coming weekend. However, after an early exit and 1-2 performance as the No. 4 seed, the Tigers will have to hit the road next week for the regional round.

The tournament selection committee announced the 16 regional host sites on Sunday night, and Baton Rouge was not among them. LSU won’t find out where it will play until the full 64-team bracket is released on Monday at 11 a.m. CT.

Coach Jay Johnson’s team had some ups and downs in Year 1, but it enters the postseason in a good position with a 38-20 (17-13 SEC) record on the year.

In total, four SEC teams were able to earn the right to host a regional: Auburn, Florida, Texas A&M and Tennessee. LSU advanced out of the regional round as an underdog last season, and it will look to do the same this time around.

The Tigers will soon learn where they’re heading and who they could face in the regional field. You can watch the selection show on ESPN2.
