USC softball to host NCAA regional

USC softball to host NCAA regional”

The Big Ten tournament didn't go exactly like the Ohio State softball team wanted, but it will now get another chance to make good on a season with missed opportunities.

Softball continues to be a sport the Pac-12 dominates, and no place can that be better seen than in the 2018 NCAA tournament field that was unveiled on Sunday night.

OR (47-7) will open against Albany (32-14) at 5:30 p.m. Thursday.

The league landed seven bids out of its nine teams, and five of those squads are set to host regionals.

The Beavers will meet Wisconsin (28-21) in the first round.

Minnesota (Washington regional), Michigan (Kentucky) and Ohio State (Florida) are seeded second in their respective regionals.

The eight winners advance to the Women's College World Series, May 31-June 5 or 6 at Oklahoma City.

Auburn defeated Kennesaw State 2-1 on April 4 on the Plains, rallying from behind thanks to an RBI single by KK Crocker and solo home run by Alyssa Rivera, and is 2-0 all-time against KSU. From there it'll be two losses and done, with the last team standing moving on to another four team super regional.
