The field of 64 has just been set and the newly crowned Big 12 champions will be staying home for regional play. Here's a brief look at how the region breaks down:
Missouri (RPI: 16)
Illinois (RPI: 29) - Went 12-7 in Big Ten play and seems heavily dependent on freshman pitcher Monica Perry (24-13, 25 CG, 4 SO)
DePaul (RPI: 18) - Big East runner-up featuring Amber Patton, the NCAA leader in batting average (.522)
Bradley (RPI: 136) - Missouri Valley champs who were actually sub-.500 for the season
I'm sure The Beef will have more to add in the Monday Musings.
