For the sixth-straight year under head coach Beverly Smith, South Carolina softball has made the NCAA Tournament, this season playing host to the Columbia Regional starting against UNCG at 7:30 PM ET on Friday at Carolina Softball Stadium at Beckham Field.

Four Pac-12 schools are in line to host Super Regional tournaments over Memorial Day weekend by virtue being top-8 seeds. The Muleriders won the Great American Conference tournament last week. OU's roster includes a couple former Mizzou pitchers who left the program in past seasons, two-time All-Big 12 Paige Lowary and Parker Conrad. Those four were Houston (36-20), Notre Dame (32-21), South Florida (38-21) and Wisconsin (28-21), NCAA Tournament selection committee chair Natalie Shock said during the tournament selection show on ESPN2.
