Balladeer’s Blog’s February Frenzy continues tonight! Not only do more conferences tip off their tournaments but regional  tournaments  for the NorCal and SoCal divisions in the CCCAA also start tonight. 

The NAIA’s California Maritime Academy Keelhaulers (logo at left) are the 1 seed in the California Pacific Conference tournament which will begin at 10:30pm ET. The Keelhaulers (love that name) went 19-9 in the regular season and if they get upset the 4th- seeded Menlo Oaks are my darkhorse pick to take the CPC title.
