Southern Miss to host C-USA baseball tourney

Posted by PATRICK MAGEE on October 10, 2013 

Southern Miss will host the Conference USA baseball tournament May 21-25 in Hattiesburg, the league announced Thursday.

This year's format will be double-elimination and include eight teams. The tournament will take place at USM for the first time since 2009, the year the Golden Eagles made a run to the College World Series.

The selection of USM as the host site followed a bidding process and a vote from the league's athletic directors.

The tournament championship game will take place on May 25 and be televised by CBS Sports Network.

USM has also hosted C-USA tournaments in 1996 and 2005.

C-USA will feature 13 baseball teams this season - Charlotte, East Carolina, FIU, Florida Atlantic, Louisiana Tech, Marshall, Middle Tennessee, Old Dominion, Rice, Southern Miss, Tulane, UAB and Texas-San Antonio.
