Texas Tech selected for Statesboro Regional

LUBBOCK, Texas – For the seventh time in nine chances, a Tim Tadlock Texas Tech baseball team is headed to the NCAA postseason. It was announced Monday morning the Red Raiders were selected as an at-large team for the Statesboro Regional, June 3-6.

Georgia Southern, the national 16-seed, is the regional host, and Tech will be joined by Notre Dame and UNC Greensboro in the Peach State.

Texas Tech (37-20, Big 12 at-large selection) enters as the 3-seed and will face off with second-seeded Notre Dame (35-14, ACC at-large selection) on Friday at 1 p.m. CT to begin the tournament. The top-seed Georgia Southern (40-18, Sun Belt at-large selection) will host the 4-seed UNC Greensboro (34-28, Southern automatic qualifier) at 6 p.m. CT on Friday.

The regional on the road is new territory for Texas Tech as it prepares for its quest for its fifth College World Series appearance under Tadlock. The Red Raiders’ nation’s best streak of hosting five consecutive regionals was snapped this weekend, but in 2014 Tech’s first CWS appearance was earned after being sent to the Coral Gables Regional.

The 2022 selection marks the 16th NCAA tournament appearance for the Red Raiders in program history.
