USM gets ticket to NCAA regional

Southern Miss was selected this morning to play in the NCAA Atlanta regional baseball tournament.
The Golden Eagles were the third seed in the regional, which will begin Friday. Other teams in the four-team double-elimination tournament are Gerogia Tech, Georgia State and Elon.
“I really think that we played the best we have all year over the last week to get an at-large bid,” Eagles head coach Corky Palmer said.
