TUCSON, Ariz. — Louisiana St. (52-9) is ranked No. 1 in Collegiate Baseball newspaper’s NCAA Division I baseball poll after winning the Southeastern Conference tournament with a 5-4, 11-inning victory over Vanderbilt.

Virginia Tech. has won eight of its last nine, and Cal. Poly six of its last seven. Three teams fell out of the top 30 this week in Seton Hall (1-2 last week), Campbell (3-1) and Western Carolina (1-2). New to the poll is Virginia Tech., Oklahoma, and San Diego.
