Game times are posted here.

Let’s take a look at what Massey “thinks”. Massey dropped the Raiders from the #4 spot after the two losses to College of Idaho a couple weeks ago. However, the Raiders have risen back to #5 on Massey after winning the conference tournament without a loss. The coaches left the Raiders at #4.

2019 Massey NAIA Softball rankings (May 9, 2019)

The coaches have Hope International at #11, but Massey has them at #14. Massey and the coaches disagree on Marymount and Taylor as well. The coaches have them at #30 and #28 while Massey has them as #20 and #35.

Massey gives the Raiders an 80% chance of beating Taylor, 72% chance against Marymount, and 68% chance against Hope. I’m not sure what chance that gives the Raiders in a double-elimination format, but probably a number well over 90% against these three teams. According to Massey, SOU has had a more challenging strength of schedule than their three opening round opponents. Oregon Tech and Corban are both in Massey’s top 20, and the Raiders went a combined 12-1 against them.
