As we’re now just past the halfway mark of the 2013 college baseball season, College Baseball Daily continues our countdown to Selection Monday with our latest 2013 Regional Projections.
For this week’s projections, instead of being solely compiled based on RPI like they have been done in past weeks, every aspect was taken into consideration. College Baseball Daily’s Ginger Poulson (@gingerpoulson) compiled this list after analyzing RPI, overall records, conference standings, overall talent and several other factors. If you have any questions about the projections feel free to leave a comment below or send her a tweet.
Enjoy the regional projections!

Houston 14 Illinois-Chicago 11 (11 Innings)
COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Sophomore catcher Chris Wallace blasted a two-run double off the center-field wall in the 11th inning to break a tie and help lift the University of Houston baseball team to a 14-11 win over Illinois-Chicago in an elimination game Sunday afternoon at the NCAA College Station Regional at Olsen Field.

Full Schedule available here.
Clemson is hosting upstart Oral Roberts in the Super Regionals this weekend. Clemson came through the regionals with an undefeated weekend with victories over UNC-Asheville, Elon, and Mississippi State. Oral Roberts also went undefeated by going to Fayetteville Arkansas and knocking off Oklahoma twice and Arkansas once.
The Clemson Tigers are led by 10 MLB draft picks which include Tyler Colvin and Andy D’Alessio. There is a good article in The Post and Courier on Tyler Colvin this week which can be found here. Each of Clemson’s weekend starters were drafted on Day 1 with Jason Berken going the highest in the sixth round. Clemson according to coach Jack Leggett says this team has a thick skin in this article from WLTX in South Carolina.
Oral Roberts is one of the hottest teams in the country heading into this series. They have won 31 out of their last 34 games to reach the Super-Regionals for the first time ever. They are led by junior catcher Andy Bouchie who batted .377 with 12 HR’s and 53 RBI’s. The Tulsa-based squad’s pitching has become healthy which has also led to the great 31-3 record in the last 34 games. Chris Ashman heads to this Super-Regional 10-1 with a 2.02 ERA in 93.1 innings pitched.
I predict a 2 game sweep by the number 1 seeded Tigers.
The Regionals are over and now we can focus on the 16 teams fighting for the 8 spots in Omaha.
