How UConn baseball advanced to its first Super Regional since 2011

They did it.

UConn baseball made its first Super Regional since 2011 and set the program record for wins in a season with its 49th victory on Monday night, an 8-7 decision over No. 15 Maryland in the seventh game of the College Park Regional.

The Huskies were the 3-seed in the regional, along with the Terrapins and Wake Forest, each of which were in the top-10 in the RPI, as well as LIU. Jim Penders’ club had put together an impressive regular season but received an appropriate seed.

Despite a gaudy record, UConn had faced just one Quad 1 opponent all season in a single game, nine more against Quad 2 schools and 33 of its 59 contests against Quad 4 opponents, which lead to an RPI in the low 40s.
