While UCLA stumbled a little this weekend when they lost their first series of the season to the Arizona Wildcats, it did not harm the Bruins when it came to seeding for the NCAA Softball Championship.
UCLA has earned the #2 national seed and will face the Weber State Wildcats on Friday at 8 pm PT on ESPNU. The other two teams playing in the Los Angeles Regional will be the Missouri Tigers and Cal State Fullerton Titans who will meet at 5:30 pm PT on Friday.
While UCLA did not play Weber State this season, they did play both Missouri and Cal State Fullerton. The Bruins beat the Tigers on February 22 by a score of 11-3 in six innings and they beat the Titans 5-1 on March 26.
The Regionals are played in a double elimination format with the winner advancing to the Super Regionals, which the higher seeded team will host. Assuming the Bruins advance, they would host the Super Regional as well because they are the #2 national seed and they will play the winner of the Ann Arbor Regional, which features #15 seed Michigan, James Madison, DePaul and St. Francis.
There are a total of five Pac-12 teams in this year’s tournament. Washington is the number three national seed while Arizona is the number six national seed. Stanford and Arizona State have also been selected to play for the championship.
Go Bruins!!! Bring home 118!!!
