If you wanna pack up tonight and head to the beach for the weekend (doesn’t sound bad at all actually…) you can see the University of Louisville womens basketball team compete for an ACC title in Conway, South Carolina. The (Myrtle) beach is about a 25 commute from the tournament site.

This year’s ACC Women’s Tournament will mark the event’s seventh appearance in the state of South Carolina and its first since a five-year run in Rock Hill from 1992-96.
The Cards will face the winner of today’s game 1, Clemson, tomorrow at 11 am. If they win they move on to play NC State on Friday at 11 am.

Ever been out west? Me either. If the Cards can get 4 victories in a row to make it to Phoenix, I’ll most likely stay in Louisville. I’ve spent a lot of time traveling with the Cards, I’d like to get a championship experience at home one time <3.

The April 26 contest against NKU will be UofL’s first game at Louisville Slugger Field since earning a 7-5 victory over Kentucky in 2003.

“The city of Louisville knows how to host big events, especially sporting events, and I believe all of the ACC teams will enjoy the experience of playing in a great sports town and in a terrific ballpark,” said UofL baseball head coach Dan McDonnell. “I’m also excited our fan base will have the opportunity to experience and support the ACC Baseball Championship.”

NCAA tourney in Omaha
A banner on the front entrance to the stadium declares that the road to Omaha goes through Louisville. The coaches, the players and the fans share the same expectation of getting back to Omaha, of someday getting out of Omaha with the biggest trophy of them all.
Regionals | June 2-5, 2017
Regionals for the NCAA Division I Baseball Championship will be held June 2-5, 2017 on 16 campus sites. At each campus site, a four-team, double-elimination tournament will be conducted and the 16 winning teams advance to the Super Regionals.
Super Regionals | June 9-12, 2017
Super Regionals for the NCAA Division I Baseball Championship will be held June 9-11 or June 10-12 on eight campus sites. At each site, two teams play in a best-of-three tournament format. The winners from each site advance to the NCAA Men’s College World Series.
Remember, Louisville has been host to regionals and supers most recently so I would expect the same could be considered for the 2017 campaign.
I actually have been out to Omaha one time, it’s the furthest west I’ve been before. Hoping the Cards can make this trip another reality this year.
College World Series | June 17-27/28, 2017

The two bracket champions will then play a best two-of-three championship series (CWS Finals) to determine the national champion. The CWS Finals format consists of single games Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (if necessary), June 26-27/28.louisvill
“You got to believe it before you can achieve it,” McDonnell said. “I felt like this year I didn’t have to say it as much, which is good. It’s understood. It’s why the kids are here. It’s what the fans expect here and I’m really proud of that. That’s a neat place to be – a program where the expectations are to go to Omaha and win a national championship.”
Current champion – Coastal Carolina
I believe that we will win.
