Baseball headed for Prado-Louisville rematch?
Saturday marks the final day of the Big East baseball regular season, and after dropping two games to first-place St. John's, USF still could be seeded anywhere from fifth to seventh in next week's league championships in Brooklyn.
The most likely scenario for the Bulls is a sixth-place finish, which would match them up with third-seeded Louisville, where coach Lelo Prado was before joining the Bulls last summer. USF and Villanova are tied for fifth with a 12-14 record, but Villanova has the head-to-head tiebreaker advantage, having taken two of three games in their regular-season series. If USF can win its finale with St. John's today, the Bulls would be seeded no lower than sixth, and if USF loses and Notre Dame wins, the Bulls would be seeded seventh.
