NCAA sets baseball tournament super regional sites

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NCAA announced the schedule for the eight super regionals in the baseball tournament Tuesday, with overall No. 1 seed UCLA set to open at home against Michigan on Friday night.
The best-of-three super regionals begin either Friday or Saturday. The winners advance to the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska, with the opener set for June 15.
The Friday-Saturday super regionals (with a third game Sunday if necessary): No. 10 East Carolina (47-16) at No. 7 Louisville (47-16); No. 9 Oklahoma St. (39-19) at No. 8 Texas Tech (42-17); Duke (34-25) at No. 2 Vanderbilt (52-10); and Michigan (44-19) at No. 1 UCLA (51-9).
The Saturday-Sunday super regionals (with a third game Monday if necessary): No. 12 Ole Miss (40-25) at No. 5 Arkansas (44-17); Florida State (39-21) at No. 13 LSU (40-24); Auburn (36-25) at No. 14 North Carolina (45-17); and No 11 Stanford (45-12) at No. 6 Mississippi St. (49-13).
The higher seeded team typically plays at home for super regionals. If the participants have the same seeding, a bid process is used to determine the home team. The NCAA will make sites official Tuesday.
