It never gets old for Michigan softball coach Carol Hutchins, who is in her 35th season leading the program. Being with her team when finding out when and where the Wolverines will play in the NCAA Tournament is still a rush.

Michigan, the Big Ten regular-season and Tournament champion, is the No. 15 seed and will host an NCAA double-elimination regional next weekend at Alumni Field with games beginning Friday. DePaul (34-14) will play James Madison (47-7) at 2 p.m., followed by Michigan facing St. Francis (Pennsylvania) (29-29).

The 64-team NCAA field was revealed Sunday night.
