Where South Carolina baseball stands to host NCAA

After being eliminated from the SEC Tournament, South Carolina baseball is stuck waiting to see whether it will earn a top 16 seed to host an NCAA Tournament regional.

The No. 19 Gamecocks (39-18) once looked like a guaranteed host and likely a top-8 national seed, but they plummeted in the rankings after losing 11 of their last 15 games in the regular season. The team didn’t do much to help its standing in the SEC Tournament, earning a 9-0 win over Georgia before losing 10-3 to No. 3 LSU and getting upset 5-0 by unranked Texas A&M.

South Carolina last hosted a regional in 2021, but Old Dominion was the top seed and could not host due to a lack of proper facilities. The Gamecocks were eliminated in two games that year. They last earned hosting rights in 2016 and won the region that season, but they were eliminated in the Columbia Super Regional by Oklahoma State.
