The NCAA announced the bids for the 2016 NCAA Baseball Tournament, and the Raleigh Regional is strong.
NC State (35-20) is the No. 1 seed with Coastal Carolina (44-15), a program some believed deserve to host a regional, drawing the No. 2 seed. No. 3 seed Saint Mary's finished the regular season 33-23, and No. 4 seed Navy finished 42-14-1.
The Wolfpack opens regional play Friday night at 7 PM on ESPN3 against No. 4 Navy.
