For the second straight season, there will be no postseason for the Virginia baseball team.

The Cavaliers were not part of the 64-team NCAA Tournament field, which was revealed on Monday.

Virginia finished with the season with a 32-24 record. The Wahoos tried to make a late push to get in the tournament with a series win over Louisville and two victories over VCU. But UVa lost its final three games of the season, including a 10-3 loss to Miami in the ACC Tournament.

Eight ACC teams made the 64-team NCAA Tournament field. Georgia Tech (No. 3) and Louisville (No. 7) earned two of the eight national seeds, meaning they will host both regionals and super regionals as long as they are alive.

North Carolina, Clemson, Duke, Florida State, Miami and N.C. State also made the NCAA Tournament.

The Cavaliers struggled in ACC play, going 14-16 in conference games and 0-2 in the ACC Tournament. Virginia won only four of its 10 ACC series and were swept by Miami. 

Prior to last season, Virginia had made the NCAA Tournament 14 straight seasons under head coach Brian O'Connor. The Cavaliers have made four College World Series appearances and won the 2015 national championship. But Virginia has struggled the past two seasons, going a combined 61-49 during the 2018 and '19 seasons.
