After falling to Clemson in the ACC Tournament semifinal, the Diamond Heels have earned a No. 3 seed in the Terre Haute Regional hosted by Indiana State.
Here’s a look at each team in the region.
No. 1 Indiana State
Indiana State is the one seed in the region, and the No. 14 national seed, after finishing 42-15 overall and winning the Missouri Valley Conference tournament. They are one of the hottest teams in the country currently, going 34-4 since March 25.
Since March 25, the Sycamores have hit a combined .294, adding 51 home runs. In comparison, the Diamond Heels have hit 34 home runs in that stretch.
Pitcher Lane Miller has posted a 7-0 record on the year in his 10 starts, allowing just a 2.61 ERA in 58.2 innings pitched. Connor Fenlong has seen the mound for 100 innings this season for the Sycamores, boasting a 9-2 record and a 3.24 ERA. The duo — along with Matt Jachec — have been dominant this season and will look to help Indiana State defend home-field advantage this weekend.
No. 2 Iowa
The Iowa Hawkeyes earned the No. 2 seed in the Terre Haute Regional after posting a 42-14 record this season. To start the season, the Hawkeyes knocked off Indiana State 6-2 in 11 innings in Jacksonville, Fla.
After going 15-8 in conference play, Iowa advanced to the Big Ten Tournament championship game where they fell to Maryland — the No. 2 seed in the Winston-Salem Regional.
