Cavaliers Set to Host Charlottesville Regional

Hoos went 2-1 in the ACC tournament, but whatever. Focus turns now to the Charlottesville regional this weekend. (Photo Credit: Sara D. Davis/theACC.com)

There won't be a further recap of this past week's debacle of an ACC tournament because my girlfriend decided to take me to her parent's lake house (humblebrag yea yea) that didn't have wifi, CSN, or ESPN. Ladies (both of you reading this), don't ever take your boyfriend, fiancee, husband, or son to a place without wifi or ESPN. It's just not right.

From what I did get to watch/listen to/follow on twitter this is how it went:

Wednesday vs. Clemson: Yeaaaaaaaa buddy. Started off well, then went a little south, but then the bottom of the 8th happened! Two runs in one inning! JT comes in and shuts it down? Well then, this team is going places! Win 3-2

Thursday vs. Georgia Tech: Alllllllllright, quick 3-0 jump on the Yellow Jackets; looking good! Umpire gets hurt and slows down the game. Oh well, still looking alright. Bottom of the third: well, shit that inning sucked but 3-6 isn't atrocious. Rest of the game: OH WHAT THE HELL?! This is the damn team that was playing in March! WE'RE DOOMED! After the game though there was hope! Clemson gave us a miracle in the ninth and saved our hopes!

Saturday vs. FSU: All hope is now lost. YEA, WE GET IT CLEMSON! UVA COULDN'T BEAT GEORGIA TECH BUT THAT DIDN'T MEAN YOU HAD TO LOSE TO THEM TOO! I guess this game has to be played anyways (have to tell ya, nothing worse than a pointless game in a tournament that is all but over). Hoos ended up playing great. No errors, 12 hits, and 6 runs hung on the top team in the nation? Build that momentum boys!

It wasn't a totally lost weekend since the RPI was boosted and they only lost to the eventual ACC champion (grumble grumble). The NCAA did announce the 16 regional hosts this afternoon and wouldn't you know there will be four teams playing in Charlottesville this weekend! This is the third straight year hosting a regional for the Cavaliers and sixth in Coach O'Connor's tenure as the head coach. More importantly, it means that UVa is in the NCAA tournament for a ninth straight year. Entering the year there were only 13 teams that had made the last eight. We'll have to wait til tomorrow when the NCAA Committee announces the rest of the 64 team field.

That announcement is at 11 AM tomorrow morning on ESPNU. I'll be livetweeting that event and hope you follow along and join in on the mayhem!
