2012 C-USA Baseball Tournament: Houston Faces Memphis In Meaningless Game

The Conference USA baseball tournament continues pool play on Friday with three games. The big surprise of the tournament is that No. 5 seeded Memphis upset No. 1 seeded Rice 3-2, and has already clinched a berth to the championship game. If Memphis can get past No. 8 seeded Houston on Friday afternoon then they will finish pool play with a 3-0 record.

No. 2 seeded Central Florida is also in danger of following in Rice's footsteps of not making the championship game. UAB crushed Central Florida 15-1 in the first game of the tournament, and if Central Florida falls to East Carolina then they would be eliminated from playing in the championship game.

2012 C-USA tournament standings:

Pod 1:

Memphis 2-0
Rice 1-1
Southern Miss 1-1
Houston 0-2

Pod 2:

Tulane 1-0
UAB 1-0
Central Florida 0-1
East Carolina 0-1

Friday's Conference USA schedule (all times central):

• Game 7 No. 7 UAB vs. No. 3 Tulane 11:00 a.m.
• Game 8 No. 6 East Carolina vs. No. 2 Central Florida 3:00 p.m.
