It wasn’t a particularly strong year for Oregon State, going 28-26 overall and finishing 9-14 in the Pac-12 to finish in sixth place. But being sixth-best in that league is better than being first in many others, and as a result the Beavers earned a bid to the 2018 NCAA tournament.

OSU is headed to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, where No. 12 seed Alabama is serving as a regional host. The Beavers open play in the double-elimination regional on Friday, May 18 against Wisconsin while Alabama will face Middle Tennessee.
The regional final in Tuscaloosa is set for Sunday, May 20.
Overall, seven Pac-12 schools made the 2018 tourney field with five set to host regionals.
