The Hurricanes have also won an NCAA-record 10 consecutive regionals under Head Coach Jim Morris, dating back to his first season in Coral Gables in 1994.
"You play all season to put yourself in position to host a regional," said Morris "You look at our record when we host a regional, and it has definitely given us an advantage over the years. We have battled through a lot of adversity this year with all of our injuries, but it has been nice to see the young guys like Jon Jay and Roger Tomas come through for us."
