Three teams will face potential elimination, with two of them packing up and heading home, as the Norman Regional enters its second day on Saturday. Wichita State and Oklahoma both won on Friday which will force Texas A&M and Morgan State face each other in the first elimination game on Saturday. The winner of that game won’t be out of the woods yet as they will face the loser of the Sooners and Shockers in the day’s second elimination game.
|Norman Regional Friday Scores|
|Game 1||Wichita State 9||Texas A&M 7|
|Game 2||Oklahoma 19||Morgan State 0|
The winner of Oklahoma and Wichita State is the only team that won’t face elimination on Saturday. Instead, they will advance to Sunday’s championship round and would have to lose twice there in order to not move on to next weekend’s Super Regional.
(All games will have a dedicated stream via ESPN3. Oklahoma and Wichita State will air on ESPN2)
