The University of Miami baseball team got some great news.
After learning they would host the four-team opening round, the Hurricanes grabbed the No. 6 overall seed in the 64-team NCAA Tournament. That means they will also host the super regional if they survive the first weekend.
UM opens play Friday against Canisus (29-23). Arizona (37-23) and Ole Miss (32-22) round out the field.
The weekend is double-elimination.
Miami was justifiably nervous after losing six of its final eight games, including a 16-3 clubbing by Wake Forest that eliminated the Canes from the ACC Tournament.
The Hurricanes are 39-18 overall.
