LSU dodges an embarrassing end to the Paul Mainieri era, earning a three-seed in the Eugene region of the NCAA Baseball Tournament.

The Tigers suffered a disappointing defeat at the SEC Tournament to Georgia, leading many to believe the team would miss the NCAA Tournament for just the second time under Paul Mainieri.

"My career is fulfilled. I've made a decision to hang them up at the end of the year and I've have a bucket-load of great experiences. I would have been heart broken for the players, not myself," said Mainieri. "And the fact that we're going to get to play I'm ecstatic for the players. I'm ecstatic that they're going to have an opportunity."

The Eugene Regional features host team Oregon, Central Connecticut State and Gonzaga. LSU Will play Gonzaga Friday at 9 p.m. CST.
