USC and Clemson aren’t the only programs from the state that will be playing postseason baseball next week. The Cougars from the College of Charleston (now of Colonial Athletic Conference fame) are headed to Gainesville for regional tournament action as the four seed.
They’ll be joined by three-seed North Carolina and two-seed Long Beach State, along with host Florida.
Tonight Cougar head coach Monte Lee joined us on the program to talk playoff baseball.
Coach Lee believed his program, who won the CAA title, had the resume of a three seed and would be headed somewhere else for regional action, but is excited to make the trip to Gainesville nonetheless.
Coach Lee told us what the other programs headed to Florida have accomplished, and how he’ll have to manage his team’s strengths in order to beat them and advance.
