Pacers only S.C. team in NCAA Division II playoffs

USC Aiken was the only South Carolina team selected for the NCAA Division II baseball playoffs, which begin Thursday at eight sites across the country.

The Pacers are the third seed for the Southeast Regional, which will be hosted by No. 1 seed Mount Olive. USCA will play No. 4 Georgia College in a first-round game of the seven-team, double-elimination event. The host Trojans have a first-round bye.

Other first-round games at. No. 2 North Georgia vs. No. 7 Lincoln Memorial and No. 4 Catawba against No.  5 UNC Pembroke.

North Greenville did not qualify for the tournament despite a 38-15 record. The Crusaders' chances likely were hurt when fifth seed UNC Pembroke won the Peach Belt Conference Tournament and automatic bid to the playoffs.
