Heels #2 Seed in NCAA Tournament

UNC will attempt to make it three straight trips to the College World Series, this time as the #2 seed overall in the NCAA Baseball Tournament. UNC will be a regional host at the USA Baseball Training Complex in Cary, NC. Here is the weekend schedule from Tar Heel Blue.

Friday, May 30
Game 1: #2 UNC Wilmington (42-15-1) vs. #3 Elon (43-16), 2 p.m.
Game 2: #1 North Carolina (46-12) vs. #4 Mount St. Mary's (21-32), 6 p.m.
Saturday, May 31
Game 3: Loser Game 1 vs. Loser Game 2, 1 p.m.
Game 4: Winner Game 1 vs. Winner Game 2, 5 p.m.
Sunday, June 1
Game 5: Winner Game 3 vs. Loser Game 4, 1 p.m.
Game 6: Winner Game 4 vs. Winner Game 5, 5 p.m.
Monday, June 2
Game 7: 1 p.m. - IF NECESSARY (If Game 5 winner also wins Game 6

Should the Heels advance to the Super Regional they would get the winner of the Conway Regional which includes: Coastal Carolina(host), East Carolina, Alabama and Columbia.

I like UNC's path to Omaha though baseball is a strange sport where anything can happen.  The upside for UNC is they get home field throughout being one of the top eight seeds.
