Wake Forest Baseball Team Makes NCAA Tournament

Wake Forest is dancing for the first time since 2007.

Dean Shore

The Diamond Deacs received some excellent news today during the NCAA Tournament selection show. The Wake Forest baseball team, who finished the season with a 34-25 record, is headed to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since the 2007 season. The Deacs are in the College Station Regional, which consists of #4 Texas A&M, Minnesota, Wake Forest, and Binghamton.

Wake Forest will begin play by taking on Minnesota on Friday at 4 p.m. ET. The game will be televised on ESPN3. The winner of that contest will play the winner of the Texas A&M-Binghamton matchup, and vice a versa. The regional is a double elimination tournament. The winner of this regional will play the winner of the Fort-Worth Regional, which consists of TCU, Arizona State, Gonzaga, and Oral Roberts. The  Wake Forest was squarely on the bubble entering the ACC Tournament, but the Deacs earned a big victory over Duke, and then followed it up with a victory over #11 Virginia.

This is a big accomplishment for the program, and we will have plenty of coverage this week here at Blogger So Dear.
