East Carolina received a bid to the NCAA Tournament on Monday and will be returning to Virginia's Davenport Field where the Pirates won two of three against the Cavaliers in a series Feb. 26-28.

ECU (34-21-1) is the No. 3 seed for the Charlottesville regional and will meet second-seeded Bryant (47-10) of the Northeast Conference at 6 p.m. Friday.

Host Virginia (37-20), the regional's No. 1 seed, meets fourth-seeded William & Mary (29-29) at 1 p.m. Friday.

Friday's losing teams play at 1 p.m. Saturday in an elimination game. Friday's winning teams meet at 6 p.m. Saturday.

All games in the double-elimination regional are scheduled to be shown on ESPN3.

The Charlottesville regional is bracketed with the Lubbock regional, hosted by Texas Tech. That field includes the top-seeded Red Raiders, No. 2 Dallas Baptist, No. 3 New Mexico and No. 4 Fairfield.

The winners of those respective regionals will play a best two of three in a Super Regional, beginning June 10, for a berth in the College World Series, which starts June 18, in Omaha, NE.

The Pirates are in the NCAA Tournament for the 28th time. ECU went 0-2 in the Coral Gables regional in 2015 after winning the American Athletic Conference Tournament last year.

The Pirates will be looking to snap out of a mini-slump that produced an 0-2 performance in the AAC Tournament this year.
