4/14 Softball Bracketology Breakdown

Washington College Softball

Last Four In: Texas, California, UCF, Stanford

First Four Out: South Carolina, Stetson, Hofstra, Georgia Southern

While the SEC is obviously the best conference in the nation, things are getting interesting out in the Pac-12. UCLA, Oregon, Arizona, Arizona State and Washington are among the top teams in the nation. Yet, there are a couple of other squads looking to punch their ticket to the NCAA Tournament. Most notable are Stanford and Cal. The Cardinal have won just two games over the last month, but the schedule has been brutal. A trip to Utah will not be easy, but this is the type of series that Stanford needs to sweep if they want to end up on the right side of the bubble. The Golden Bears have just one win in their last six Pac-12 games during a homestand against Arizona State and Arizona. The schedule does not get any easier with Oregon and UCLA up next. Like Stanford, Cal is precariously hanging onto an NCAA Tournament spot for now.
