D1Baseball Top 25: Old Dominion Headlines Climbers
Arkansas completed an undefeated run to the SEC tournament title, keeping the Hogs atop the D1Baseball Top 25 for the eighth straight week. Arkansas has won all 15 of its weekends this year, counting the conference tournament, and heads into the NCAA tournament as the SEC regular-season and tourney champion, and the No. 1 national seed.
SEC East champion Tennessee climbed two spots to No. 2 after a run to the conference title game, moving Texas and Vanderbilt down one spot apiece to 3 and 4, respectively. Pac-12 champion Arizona and ACC regular-season champ Notre Dame moved up one spot apiece to Nos. 5 and 6. Stanford moved up two spots to No. 7 after taking a series from Oregon State, giving the Cardinal series wins against all five of the other regional teams from the Pac this year.
TCU made the one of the week’s biggest moves, vaulting seven spots to No. 8 after winning the Big 12 tournament championship. The Frogs had tied for the best record in the league in the regular season. Texas Tech fell four spots to No. 9 following a 1-2 showing in Oklahoma City. Oregon, the Pac-12 runner-up, held steady at No. 10.
Old Dominion made the biggest jump of the week, up nine spots from No. 24 to No. 15 after an unbeaten run to the C-USA title. The Monarchs earned the No. 11 national seed in the NCAA tournament.
Three teams joined the rankings this week. UCLA jumped back into the rankings at No. 21 after wrapping up an 18-12 campaign in the Pac-12. Duke returned to the rankings for the first time since Week Two, checking in at No. 25 after an unbeaten run to its first-ever ACC tournament title, extending its winning streak to 12 games. And Oklahoma State returned to the rankings at No. 24 after reaching the Big 12 tourney finals.
