It was a shock and awe kind of announcement for North Carolina State today, the Wolfpack apparently stunned that it’s not a national seed for the NCAA tournament.
Oregon grabbed the last national seed, at No. 8, after going 22-8 in the Pac-12, which is the No. 3 RPI conference behind the ACC and SEC. NC State went 19-10 in the ACC and has an RPI of 7 compared to Oregon’s 9.
The Raleigh Regional winner will travel to Oregon for the super, provided Oregon wins out in its own regional this weekend.
If Oregon loses and Ole Miss wins the Raleigh Regional, Ole Miss would be in the discussion to host a super.
