EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - It was an up and down season for USI baseball, and after one win and two losses in the conference tournament, there was still some hope, for an at-large bid, to the NCAA tournament, after a 9th-place ranking in the latest midwest region poll.
However, that hope ended, when the NCAA released the pairings for the midwest regional tonight, and the Eagles did not make the field. This is the first time since 2015, that USI has not made the tournament.
It’s certainly a rarity, because Eagles baseball has made the tournament, six times in 10 years, winning two national championships, in 2010 and 2014.
USI finished the season, 30-21. The Eagles will graduate eight seniors from this year’s team.
