NC State baseball was left out of the NCAA Tournament on Monday afternoon — a stunning decision after the Wolfpack’s run to the ACC Tournament title game over the weekend.

Wolfpack athletic director Boo Corrigan didn’t waste time before releasing a statement on the matter:

“We are shocked and disappointed that our baseball team did not receive a bid to the NCAA Tournament,” Corrigan said in the statement. “We hurt for our student-ahtletes and coaches who worked so hard and who we believe deserved this opportunity.”

NC State missed out in favor of Ole Miss. The Rebels ranked 7 spots below the Wolfpack in the RPI after the conclusion of conference tournaments.

Florida State coach Mike Martin Jr. also stuck up for the Wolfpack on Monday afternoon. He cited the lack of ACC representation on the selection committee as a possible reason for NC State’s exclusion.

“It’s what happens when you don’t have representation from your league on the committee,” Martin told reporters on Monday. “The ones that do have representation seem to get taken care of … I feel so bad for (NC State head coach) Elliott (Avent) and his tremendous ball club that he has. There’s no way they shouldn’t be in.”

In total, 9 ACC teams made the NCAA Tournament.
