2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament: Rice, SHSU, Prairie View A&M All In Houston Regional

The seedings and matchups for the 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament Regionals were announced on ESPN3 Monday afternoon and Rice will host Arkansas, Sam Houston State and Prairie View A&M in the Houston Regional.

Arkansas goes in as the No. 2 seed and plays the No.3-seed Bearkats on Friday, while the Panthers are the No. 4 seed. For Sam Houston, it's a relief to still be playing baseball after a disappointing showing the Southland Conference tournament where they were knocked out by the eventual champion UT-Arlington Mavericks, who will play in the Waco Regional.

Rice and Prairie View are pitted against each other in a David vs. Goliath matchup. But these three prideful Houston-area schools, the Houston Regional should have really nice attendance and a lot of fanfare.
