2015 NCAA Regionals -- Saturday Updates

Not a good day so far for seeded (and unseeded) SEC teams.

No. 5-seed LSU has fallen to Arizona State, 1-0. After starting off the season 25-0 and holding a 41-5 record as of April 19, the Tigers have stumbled, going 4-6 in their last 10 games before today's loss. Under the regionals' double-elimination format, LSU can still recover, but it won't be easy.

No. 14-seed Georgia is locked in a marathon tussle with Western Kentucky, currently tied 1-1 in the 14th inning, the equivalent of two regulation-length games... ...and the Bulldogs have just lost to the Hilltoppers, 2-1.

Another seed (this time non-SEC) has lost, as NC State shuts out No. 15-seed James Madison, 2-0.

No. 11-seed Oklahoma narrowly escapes Texas A&M, 7-5, scoring three in the bottom of the seventh, including a walk-off two-run homer by Erin Miller.
