    UConn (33-24), the No. 3 seed in The American Championship, advances to the semifinal round of the tournament for the third straight year. The Huskies trailed 5-3 after six innings, but scored three in the seventh and two in the eighth to win it. The Huskies will face Houston Saturday at 10 a.m. and would need two wins against the Cougars to advance to Sunday’s final.

    From D1Baseball.com writer:

    The committee wound up omitting our last three in (UConn, Old Dominion and Gonzaga) in favor of our first three out (A&M, St. John’s and Maryland). And we don’t have any huge objection to that — as we said, all six of them are worthy. But we thought Connecticut was a fairly easy call to get in based on its 14-10 record in the No. 4 RPI conference, its No. 38 RPI as a Northern team and its respectable 17-18 record against the top 50 (which blows away Maryland’s 10-11 mark, for instance). When I pressed Sidwell about specific teams like Gonzaga and UConn, I did not receive any satisfying explanations for their omissions — just generalities like you see above. That was disappointing
