In his weekly NCAA Tournament stock projections, Aaron Fitt of Baseball America projected Indiana to be one of the eight national seeds in the tournament, which would not only guarantee that the Hoosiers would host an NCAA Regional, but that they would also be guaranteed to host a Super Regional if they would advance out of the first weekend.
The Hoosiers were one of five teams listed as on the bubble but in for a national seed, joining South Carolina, Mississippi, Oregon State and Louisiana-Lafayette. The three teams listed as secure for a national seed were Virginia, Florida State and Florida. Listed as on the bubble but out were Texas Christian, Rice, Houston, Cal Poly, Alabama, Louisiana State, Texas Tech, Miami, and Vanderbilt.
Indiana heads into its 6 p.m. game at Miami (Ohio) tonight with a 28-12 record and a 13-2 Big Ten mark. The Hoosiers are ranked No. 2 in the RPI and No. 15 by Baseball America.
