2011 NCAA Baseball Regionals Schedule, Columbia: South Carolina Opens With Georgia Southern

Could the 2011 College World Series see a repeat champ? The 2010 title-winners open up their attempt to repeat with a home game against the Southern Conference champion Georgia Southern Eagles, as the South Carolina Gamecocks host the 2011 Columbia Regional. Joining them at Carolina Stadium are the N.C. State Wolfpack and Atlantic Sun champ Stetson Hatters.

USC coach Ray Tanner, who calls GSU the country's best fourth seed, is expected to send lefty Michael Roth (1.17) up against Southern's Chris Beck (3.21). Minus injured ace Kurt Schluter, Stetson is expected to put Lindsey Caughel (4.40) vs. N.C. State's Josh Easley (6.15), with Wolfpack ace Cory Mazzone reserved for Round 2.
