NCAA Softball Tournament Schedule: Arizona picks up No. 11 National Seed, will host Regional

There will be some NCAA Softball Regional action at Hillenbrand this weekend!

Arizona Athletics

The Arizona Wildcats (41-13) found out their fate for the NCAA Softball Tournament on Sunday, and they will be hosting the Boston University Terriers (35-19), Louisville Cardinals (36-20), and LSU Tigers (35-22) at Hillenbrand Stadium for the double-elimination regional round.  All the games will be broadcast on ESPNU and ESPN3.  

The first Arizona game will start at 8 PM local time against the BU Terriers Friday night.  The Louisville/LSU game starts at 5:30 PM.

Arizona is the 11 seed nationally.  Looking down the road, the Wildcats would likely face UL-Lafayette in the Super Regionals.  The Ragin' Cajuns are the No. 6 National Seed.

The Pac-12 also picked up national seeds in Oregon (No. 1 overall), UCLA (No. 3), Arizona State (No. 9) and Washington (No. 12).  The ASU regional in Tempe will be broadcast on ESPNU.  That region includes Michigan, who has been a national power in softball for about the last decade, so the Devils got a little bit of a tough draw.

More on the NCAA Softball Tournament later this week, but get ready to rock Hillenbrand on Friday!
