Pittsburgh and Virginia Tech did not qualify for the tournament, which was originally scheduled for Durham Bulls Athletic Park but was moved as part of the fallout from North Carolina's since-repealed House Bill 2.
Miami, which enters the tournament still looking for wins to continue bolstering its NCAA Tournament resume, will open play in Louisville on Tuesday morning at 11 against No. 10 seed Georgia Tech. Each team in the four pools will play one game against each of the other two opponents in its pool Tuesday through Friday (May 23-26).
By virtue of earning the No. 2 and No. 7 seeds, respectively, North Carolina and NC State will be paired together in Pool B of the 2017 ACC Baseball Championship in Louisville next week.
The defeat also halted Louisville's streak of 33 consecutive regular season series victories at Jim Patterson Stadium.
Louisville's final regular season game against Florida State was canceled Saturday night, but it may have been just the forecast the baseball team needed. UM will face third-seeded Wake Forest and 10th-seeded Georgia Tech in pool play. In 2009, the teams met three times in Clearwater, Florida, with Louisville winning a semifinal game, before the Irish won in the first final, forcing a winner-take-all championship which UofL captured, 7-6.
No. 9 Duke vs.
#11 Boston College vs. #7 NC State (Pool B) - 3:00 p.m.
#6 Miami vs. #3 Wake Forest (Pool C) - 3:00 p.m.
#8 Florida State vs. #1 Louisville (Pool A) - 3:00 p.m.
All tournament games will be televised on the ACC's regional networks, and streamed online at WatchESPN.com and the Watch ESPN app.
Pool B victor vs. The Cards gave up 20 runs in those two games to an FSU squad that has won eight of its last 10 games.
