QUOTING COACH JAY JOHNSON: “Ole Miss has one of the best offenses in the SEC, there’s no question about that; especially at full strength, which they are. My team at Arizona played them in the Super Regional last season, and it’s the exact same team. Every player that was in their lineup last year is back on their team this year.
“Their lineup is really deep, and they always do a good job with the pitching in getting guys lined up. I expect this to be a tough weekend; this is exactly the same as the eight preceding weekends in terms of difficulty, and it should be a great weekend for college baseball. I know our players are excited about it.”
