The Louisville baseball team heard its name called on Selection Monday for the fifth time in six years when it drew the three seed in the Tucson Regional earlier today.
The Cards will open play in the big dance Friday night at 7 p.m. against second-seeded New Mexico St. That game will be carried live on ESPNU.
Top-seed and host Arizona will then play Missouri in the nightcap. U of L defeated Mizzou twice in 2007 to win the Columbia Regional on their way to the College World Series.
Winning just one game in the Big East Tournament was obviously a disappointment for the Cards, but the result here is a pretty good draw. Yes, it sucks having to go out West, but they don't have to face a national seed and the other two teams in the pod aren't exactly juggernauts.
Sounds a lot like the tournament draw of another Louisville team.
