The latest NCAA baseball rankings are out, and while Virginia baseball's dominant spring continues in the USA Today/ESPN Top 25, where they got 19 out of 31 first-place votes, but in the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper rankings they fell to a streaking South Carolina Gamecocks squad by just one point. Virginia could only take two of three from Boston College last week, while the Gamecocks have won eight of their last nine to move to 35-8 on the season. (They took second in the USA Today/ESPN poll.)â†µ
Oklahoma, formerly the class of the Big 12 standings, remains at 15 and 13, respectively, while Texas A&M holds just inside the Top 10. The Missouri Tigers can take credit for that, in one of the most exciting parts of their ugly season to date—they stole two of three from Texas A&M, winning game one 10-9 before pounding them by a score of 9-1 on April 30.
It's a season highlight for a team that sits at 19-25 in 2011 and is unlikely to make one of these college baseball rankings updates through the front door.â†µ
