NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - In Tulane's first year under coach David Pierce, the Wave are hoping to earn their first NCAA postseason bid since the spring of 2008.
Entering the first-ever American Athletic Conference Baseball Tournament, Tulane has an RPI of 38, placing them firmly on the bubble. Their Saturday doubleheader sweep of Memphis earned them the third seed in the AAC Tournament and they will face sixth-seeded Connecticut Wednesday at 2 PM in Clearwater, FL.
After dropping their first regular season game against the Huskies, 6-0, Tulane outscored UConn in the following two games, 10-4, to win the series.
