The 2014 Southland Conference Softball Tournament champion, Northwestern State, will head to the Waco Regional in Waco, Texas to face No. 13 Baylor at 7 p.m. Friday in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

The Lady Demons (30-20) and the Bears (42-13) are joined by Houston (32-21) and Tulsa (50-7) in the three-day, double-elimination style bracket whose winner advances to the NCAA Super Regionals the following weekend. All games will be played at Getterman Stadium.

The NCAA Tournament bracket was announced Sunday evening on ESPNU. The Lady Demons earned the program’s fifth tournament berth, and second in a row, after defeating top-seeded McNeese State 11-0 (five innings) Sunday morning in the Southland Tournament championship game. Baylor ended the season with a split with Big 12 Conference foe Texas in Austin, Texas.

Houston and Tulsa will begin tournament play at 4:30 p.m. Friday with the winner of both games advancing in the winner’s bracket for a noon match-up Saturday. The losers of each game will face each other Saturday at 2:30 p.m.

The winner of the loser’s bracket game (game five) will play again at 5 p.m. with the loser of the winner’s bracket noon game.

The championship game is set for 1 p.m. Sunday, with a 3:30 p.m. final contest, if necessary.
