NCAA Softball Tournament Preseason Projections

With the 2019 season set to begin here is a look at our “way too early” NCAA Tournament bracket and the top 64 contending teams based on what they return and or have lost on roster. The departures at Oregon is main reason I have them out of this NCAA Tournament projection. This week’s announcement that Baylor’s ace pitcher, Gia Rodoni, will miss entire 2019 season following knee surgery puts the Bears postseason in question with big questions left in the circle.
