FIU heads to UNC as No. 2 seed, plays James Madison on Friday

FIU was selected as a No. 2 seed in the NCAA baseball tournament and will travel to the University of North Carolina to face James Madison on Friday at 1 p.m.

The Panthers are making their 10th appearance in the tournament and their first back-to-back showing since 2002.

“We are excited about being in a regional again,” FIU shortstop Garrett Wittels said. “Hopefully we can keep playing good baseball. In my mind we have been one of the hottest teams in college baseball.”

The Panthers, who lost in the Sun Belt Conference final 7-6 to UALR on Sunday, are ranked No. 20 in the Baseball America top 25 and have won 21 of their last 25 24 games, including a tie.

FIU (40-18-1) will use junior lefty Phil Haig against James Madison. Haig is 9-3 this season, with a 3.27 ERA, 69 strikeouts in 93.2 innings pitched.

On the other side of the bracket, host North Carolina (No. 1 seed in the region and No. 3 overall) plays Maine.

We've won 21 out of the last 23 games with one tie according to ESPN jerk off.

Keeping it classy there FIU FAN, comeon man, you can point something out without being a schmuck.

Fixed, thanks


Why did you put 20/24? Instead of 20/23?


Why am I being a "schmuck?" Because this freaking guy cannot do his job right! That's why! I mean how hard can it be!? I don't care about minor grammatical errors. My intention is not to give the guy a hard time. I mean have some pride in your job man, you are an adult, I don't sympathize with you.

Miami is good and FIU is bad and I like Miami.

Who's "Miami?"

Miami Hurricanes!!!!

Hurricanes that pass by Miami? I don't understand there is only one University in Miami and that's FIU. The other ones are in Boca Raton, Coral Gables etc., thanks.

Hahaha, good point.

Talk to anyone in the country about Miami football and they'll assume you're talking about FIU, no doubt!!!

Wow, once again we got skunked in the postseason. I feel so foolish wearing that "Who's HOT, Who's NOT?" tee-shirt. I wonder if they take returns at the Hialeah pugero?

i go to fiu and i am poor. i wish i could go to um and have a real education. oh well the pulgeros will have to do. maybe i get lucky at miccosukee casino and then can go to um. until then i will dream of being a hurricane.
