The University of Houston-Victoria begins its quest for a third consecutive Association of Independent Institutions baseball tournament championship on Wednesday.

The Jaguars are seeded second and will open tournament play at 1 p.m. at Varnedoe Stadium against No. 3 seed Talladega College,

UHV coach Terry Puhl plans to go with a pitching rotation of Broc Haymon, John Touchton and Cory Carter.

"Pitching is always a key, but you have to score runs late in the season because you have a situation where guys are all coming in with confidence," Puhl said. "Our pitching staff is our strength and it will take us as far as we can go."
