CONWAY, S.C. (AP) -- Coastal Carolina is a national seed in the NCAA tournament for the first time ever.
The Chanticleers are the fourth seed in the tournament, meaning they will host a super regional if they win this weekend's regional in Myrtle Beach.
Joining Coastal Carolina in the double-elimination regional are the College of Charleston, North Carolina State and Stony Brook.
The Chanticleers will open with Seawolves, who won the America East title. The Cougars will play the Wolfpack in the other opener.
Coastal Carolina leads the nation with 51 wins and won all 25 of their games to take the Big South Conference crown.
The winner of this weekend's regional will face the winner of the South Carolina regional with a berth in the College World Series on the line.
