In this year’s NCAA Tournament, UConn baseball got a better draw than some other 3-seeds, with No. 15 Maryland, Wake Forest and LIU joining the Huskies in the College Park Regional. That doesn’t mean it’s an easy draw, though. The Terrapins and Demon Deacons are dangerous squads.
At No. 6 in the RPI, Wake Forest is the highest-rated team by that metric to not host a Regional since the NCAA Tournament expanded to 16 sites in 1999. The Demon Deacons finished 15-14-1 in ACC play, went 1-1 in the ACC Tournament and had a 21-15-1 record against the RPI top 100.
