Despite a disappointing showing in the Big 12 Tournament, Randy Mazey’s career and the WVU baseball season is not over. The Mountaineers earned an NCAA at-large bid on Monday.

West Virginia landed in the Tucson Region as a No. 3 seed. WVU will face Dallas Baptist in their opening game. Arizona, the top seed and host, Dallas Baptist are the other two teams in the region.

After finishing the regular season with a 33-20 record, WVU went 0-2, failing to win a game in the Big 12 Tournament for the third straight year. But much like last year, West Virginia will advance to the program’s 15th NCAA Tournament appearance nonetheless.

As Mazey leads the Mountaineers to the postseason one last time, he holds a 539–423–2 overall record. Mazey is 8-14 in NCAA Tournament games throughout his career.

The expectation is this is also the final season for star infielder JJ Wetherholt, who is projected to a be a top 10 pick in the upcoming MLB Draft.

For a related story, Mazey made a case for WVU baseball deserving an at-large bid prior to conference tournament play.
