By Jeff Shepard - bio | email

OXFORD, MS (WLOX) -  For the fifth time in the last six seasons Ole Miss will host an NCAA Regional, the program found out when the NCAA announced their 16 host site selections on Sunday.

The entire NCAA Tournament bracket - including the eight national seeds - will be announced at 11:30 a.m. Monday on ESPN. At that time, Ole Miss will find out which three teams will be coming to Oxford for the tournament and the identity of their first round opponent.

The event will run May 29 - June 1 at Oxford- University Stadium/Swayze Field.

Ole Miss (40-17, 20-10 SEC) claimed a share of the 2009 Southeastern Conference regular-season championship to bring home the program's seventh conference title in school history. It marks the seventh straight post-season appearance for the Rebels and eighth overall under head coach Mike Bianco.

"We're very excited to be hosting a regional for the fifth time in six years," said Ole Miss head coach Mike Bianco. "The players have had a terrific year and are certainly deserving of this. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to play in front of our fans for another weekend and to have another chance to take the field at Oxford-University Stadium."

Tickets for the tournament are available in all areas and fans can purchase ticket books for $60 for general admission, $70 for reserved grandstand seats and $80 for box seats. Each book gains admission to every game of the Oxford Regional.

If available, individual game tickets will be sold on game day only. Reserved seats will be sold for $15 while box seats will sell for $20. General admission tickets for adults are $15 on game day and $10 for Ole Miss students with ID and younger children. Student seats will be in right field for the $10 admission.

All ticket books sold will be picked up at will-call.

Information on ticket pick-up procedures will be announced on www.OleMissSports.com.

        

Tickets can be purchased over the phone by calling the Ole Miss Ticket Office at 662-915-7167 or 1-888-732-8587 for in-state calls. The ticket office will be closed on Monday for the Memorial Day holiday.
