College Baseball Bracketology: Hot streak has UVA looking good

uva baseballA series win over then-#5 Louisville has UVA Baseball back on the good side of the NCAA Tournament bubble.

The latest projection from Baseball America has the ‘Hoos (30-21, 12-15 ACC) in the field of 64 as a #3 seed.

It helps that Virginia book-ended the Louisville series win with a pair of wins over VCU, which is also projected for a spot in the tourney field.

The recent hot streak has UVA up to the 45th spot in the NCAA RPI, ahead of several other teams projected to make the field as at-large teams, including Duke, Cal-Irvine and Florida State.

Key for the Cavaliers will be a tough weekend series at Virginia Tech (25-25, 8-19 ACC).

Virginia needs to notch another series win to stay on the right side of the NCAA Tournament bubble heading into next week’s ACC Tournament.
