CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – Coastal Carolina University's men's baseball team will not get the opportunity to defend their national title this year.
The Chanticleers were left out of the NCAA's field of 64, which was revealed Monday at 12 p.m.
"We kind of made this bed for ourselves over the course of four months," said Coach Gary Gilmore.
CCU needed an at-large bid to get into the tournament after falling to eighth-seed Texas State on Friday in the quarterfinal of the 2017 Sun Belt Championship.
The Chants finished the season 37-19-1.
