LSU baseball heads to the Chapel Hill Regional as a No. 2 seed in NCAA Tournament

LSU has learned where it is headed for the regionals. The Tigers are headed to Chapel Hill, North Carolina, to battle North Carolina, Wofford and Long Island.

Here is a fun fact from Todd Politz: LSU has never faced Wofford or Long Island in school history. LSU was named the No. 2 seed in the Chapel Hill Region and will open against the third-seeded Wofford Terriers. Wofford finished 41-18 and won the Southern Conference Tournament as the No. 5 seed.

North Carolina is the No. 4 national seed in the NCAA Tournament and opens the regional against the Long Island Sharks (33-23), who won the Northeast Conference Tournament as the No. 2 seed. North Carolina (42-13) after losing to Wake Forest in the ACC Tournament.

The Chapel Hill Regional matches up with the Tucson Regional in the super regionals. That region consists of Arizona, Grand Canyon, West Virginia and Dallas Baptist. Interestingly, Jay Johnson could match up with Arizona, his former school.

Also, LSU has filed a host bid, so if there is an upset winner in the Tucson Regional and LSU wins the Chapel Hill Regional, the Tigers would host the super regional.
