Coastal Carolina (10-7-3) earned the program's third bid to the NCAA Tournament by winning the Big South Conference Championship and the League's automatic bid. Seton Hall (10-6-2) received an at-large bid after being ranked in the top-20 earlier this season.
A glance at the results from both squads may point to a pair of teams going in different directions. Coastal Carolina had a slow start to the season - losing four of its first five matches. The Chanticleers turned things around as the season progressed and enter the NCAA Tournament having posted a 6-1-2 record in their last nine outings.
Meanwhile, the Pirates went 7-1-1 in the first half of their season, but have fallen on hard times down the stretch. In the last nine games, Seton Hall has a 3-5-1 record, including dropping three of its final four matches of the season.
