NEW YORK (AP) -- Arizona State has been selected as the top seed for the 64-team NCAA Division I college baseball tournament.

The Sun Devils (47-8) won the Pac-10 title under interim coach Tim Esmay. They will host one of 16 four-team, double-elimination regionals that begin Friday. Arizona State opens against Horizon League champion Milwaukee (33-24).

The other national seeds, in order, are: Texas, Florida, Coastal Carolina, Virginia, UCLA, Louisville and Georgia Tech.

The 16 regional winners move on to the best-of-three super regionals, with those winners advancing to the College World Series, which begins June 19 in Omaha, Neb.

Defending national champion LSU will play UC Irvine in the first round of the Los Angeles regional, hosted by UCLA.
