Tech finished the regular season with a series win over No. 10 Duke this weekend at Russ Chandler Stadium. The Jackets are 31-25 overall and ranked No. 46 in RPI, according to warrennolan.com. Before the final two weeks of the regular season, coach Danny Hall said he believed that the Yellow Jackets needed to win their last two series to be in position to make the NCAA field, which they've missed two of the past three seasons. They beat Duke, but lost to Virginia. A win over North Carolina (No. 7 in RPI) would help the cause. Pitt is No. 122.
If Tech can win Pool A, it would face the winner of Pool D (Duke, Louisville and Wake Forest) in the semifinal next Saturday.
