OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Gamecocks coach Ray Tanner hasn't announced his starting pitcher. Sophomore right-hander Konner Wade (10-3) will start for Arizona (46-17).  

Tanner says the Gamecocks (49-18) are pretty good but aren't the 1927 Yankees. He adds that it' takes some luck to reach the finals three years in a row.  

The Gamecocks had to replace five regulars from the team that beat Florida in last year's finals. The last school to win three titles in a row was Southern California in the 1970s.  

Arizona this season is batting .330 and averaging seven runs a game.   Gamecocks coach Ray Tanner hasn't announced his starting pitcher. Sophomore right-hander Konner Wade (10-3) will start for Arizona (46-17).
