Thank you National Softball Selection Committee. Kansas can run, but they can’t hide. They won’t play Mizzou in football or basketball, but they may not have a choice when it comes to softball. Late Sunday night, the Tigers learned they have been selected to host an NCAA Regional for the seventh-straight season. The Tigers (39-14, 14-10)received the No. 10 overall seed and are the top-seeded team in the Columbia Regional.
Joining the Tigers and Jayhawks in the Columbia Regional are Louisville and Indiana State.
This is the ninth time in head coach Ehren Earleywine’s nine-year tenure that the Tigers have made the postseason. The Tigers have won six of their past seven NCAA Regionals, reaching the Women’s College World Series three times in that span. It’s the sixth consecutive season that Mizzou has clinched a top-16 national seed.
Mizzou opens this Friday against Indiana State at 6:30 p.m. CT at University Field.
