LSU was awarded the No. 7 national seed in the NCAA tournament Monday and will host a regional that includes Oregon State, Belmont and Louisiana-Monroe starting Friday at Alex Box Stadium in Baton Rouge.

The SEC champion Tigers (43-16) will host a regional for the first time since 2009, the last year LSU won a College World Series. The winner of the LSU regional gets the winner of the Miami, Fla., regional in a Super Regional. If LSU advances, it would host the Super Regional.

LSU, the region's No. 1 seed, opens postseason play at 7 p.m. Friday against No. 4 Louisiana-Monroe (31-28). The Warhawks got in the hard way as a surprising champion of the Sun Belt Conference tournament after a .500 finish in the regular season standings. ULM did win two of three in a series against Tennessee and two against Southland Conference champion Sam Houston State, which is at the Rice regional with an at-large bid.
