The waiting is sometimes the hardest part.

But it's not as hard when you know your name is coming up.

It took a while, but the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns have learned their opponents for this week's NCAA Regional starting Friday at M. L. "Tigue" Moore Field.

The Cajuns will meet Ivy League champion Princeton in the featured game at 7:00 pm, while the other matchup will feature former UL Assistant Coach Matt Deggs and his Sam Houston State Bearkats, taking on the Arizona Wildcats, an at-large selection out of the Pac-12.  Sam Houston State won the regular season and tournament championship in the Southland Conference, while neither the Ivy nor the Pac-12 have a conference tournament.

The Cajuns (41-19) were announced as a regional host Sunday night after winning their final ten games, including a 5-0 victory over Georgia Southern in the finals of the Sun Belt Conference Tournament.

UL is one of five Louisiana schools to make the NCAA Tournament.  LSU will be the #8 national seed, hosting Rice, Southeastern Louisiana and Utah Valley State..  Louisiana Tech is headed to Mississippi State as a #3 seed, while Tulane is going to Ole Miss as the #2 seed in the Oxford Regional.

The Lafayette Regional is paired with Mississippi State.  Those two regional winners will battle in the best 2 out of 3 Super Regional for the right to go to the College World Series.
