NCAA Baseball Tournament bracket: Arizona in Lafayette Regional with Louisiana-Lafayette, Sam Houston State and Princeton

The Wildcats are heading to Lafayette

Jason Bartel

After finishing the year with a 38-20 overall record and a six-game winning streak, the Arizona Wildcats will being postseason play in Lafayette on Friday at 11 AM PT.

Lafayette Regional


As the 2-seed in the region, Arizona will open the NCAA Tournament against 3-seed Sam Houston State. The other two teams are 1-seed Louisiana-Lafayette and 4-seed Princeton.

This is a bracket filled with some hot teams. Sam Houston State is 34th in the RPI, and have won nine of their last ten. Louisiana-Lafayette has won each of their last ten games. And then there's Arizona, who is on a six-game winning streak.

Should the Wildcats advance out of the Lafayette Regional, they would face the winner of the Starkville Regional in the second weekend. That team would likely be Mississippi State or Cal State Fullerton.

Other Pac-12 schools that got picked are: Arizona State, Washington and Utah. ASU is a 2-seed travelling to Fort Worth to take on TCU, Gonzaga and Oral Roberts. The Huskies are a 3-seed in Nashville with Vanderbilt, UCSB and Xavier. Utah is a 4-seed in the Oxford Regional with Ole Miss, Tulane and Boston College.

We'll have more thoughts throughout the day from the team as they being to prep for Arizona's first postseason games since 2012.
