The Lady Barons are slated to open the tournament on Thursday, May 2 with a tough bout against No. 3-seeded Mobile (Ala.) at 1 p.m. in Decatur, Ala.

Earlier this season, BPC dropped a pair of games to the Rams on the road in Mobile, 2-1 and 6-2 back on April 5. The Rams closed the regular season as the No. 15-ranked team in the NAIA and finished with an overall record of 29-14 with an 18-8 record in SSAC play.
