The NCAA will announce the regional sites for the upcoming NCAA tournament tonight at 8:30. The Cats look to be on the outside looking in to have one of the top 8 national seeds, but do look like a solid candidate to host a regional site game. On Twitter, the UK Baseball team had this to say,
“We are expected to be named one of 16 NCAA Regional host sites tonight. Selection Show tomorrow at noon on ESPN2. Stay tuned… The eight national seeds will be named tomorrow.”
How this works is that the top 16 seeds will host regional games, while the top 8 will get host the Super Regional round. Even getting the chance to host an NCAA Regional is a huge accomplishment for Nick Mingione and UK Baseball.
You can watch the announcement of the top 16 seeds at 8:30 tonight on Facebook Live. Here is a link to their Facebook page. Facebook.com/NCAACWS
