For the 28th consecutive season, Arizona will participate in postseason play. The University of Arizona will host an NCAA Softball Championships Regional Friday through Sunday, May 16-18, at Rita Hillenbrand Memorial Stadium.

Teams in the region include at-large selection from the SEC LSU, American Conference tournament Louisville, Patriot League tournament champion Boston University and Arizona, an at-large selection. Arizona is the lone national seed in the region, at No. 11 overall.

The regional will be televised by the ESPN family of networks with Arizona’s opening-round matchup with Boston University will be aired on ESPNU.

Game times Friday feature Louisville vs. LSU at 5:30 p.m. PDT, followed by Boston vs. Arizona at 8:00 p.m.
