It marks the fourth time in seven years that a regional will be held in Baton Rouge. The Tigers hosted the NCAA Central Regional in 1999, 2002 and 2004.
The meet is scheduled for April 7, 2006, at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. The field's top two teams will advance to the NCAA Championships in Corvallis, Ore., on April 20-22.
"Certainly I'd rather host than have to travel and compete in an unfamiliar environment," said Breaux. "Hosting allows you to control part of your destiny.
"Every year this meet becomes more and more important. Because of the amount of talent in our sport and the parity that has developed it gets harder to advance each year," added Breaux. "Hosting gives you a slight edge and in that type of competitive environment you'll take any kind of edge you can get."
Other NCAA Regionals were awarded to Arkansas, Georgia, Iowa State, Michigan and Stanford.
The Tigers begin the 2006 season, Jan. 6, when they host the Super Six Challenge at the Maravich Center.
