The Duke Baseball team found out its fate on Monday afternoon and they are now headed to Georgia for the NCAA Baseball Tournament Regionals.
The Blue Devils will get their NCAA Tournament started on Friday at 2:00 pm ET against the No. 3 Seed Troy.
The bracket is set up in the double-elimination style, so the Blue Devils are guaranteed at least two games.

Should Duke defeat Troy, they would then take on the winner of Georgia and Campbell, and if the Blue Devils lose to Troy, they would face the loser of the Georgia-Campbell game.
One thing that seemed to be disheartening was where the selection committee placed the Blue Devils in regard to other ACC teams.
NC State, Flordia State, and North Carolina are all hosts for their individual regions. However, Duke swept a rain-shortened 2-game series with Florida State, took two of three games late in the season from North Carolina, and lost the series two games to one against NC State.
Neither Duke, North Carolina, nor NC State made it to the semifinals of the ACC Baseball Tournament, however, the Seminoles did capture the title over Louisville.
The selection committee should have taken a deeper look at the resumes of UNC, NCST, and FSU before awarding them hosting opportunities over the Blue Devils.
Despite all that, the Blue Devils are still in the NCAA Tournament with a very good seed in what looks to be a wide-open regional. The Blue Devils will need to play their best baseball of the season if they want to continue this historic ride in an attempt to reach the ‘Holy Land’ of College Baseball, Omaha, Nebraska.
