On the road today leaving for the big battle with Tulane tommorrow night in New Orleans. In my seven years as the Voice of Womens' Basketball, this will be the biggest regular season game I've called. The two first place teams face off with just four games left after.
What a fun ride it has been this season, just like I thought, this team started to really get going around Christmas. I knew this could be a top-four team in the league, but playing for first this late in the season is defenitly a treat. Regardless of what happens, we'll still have another very tough game at UTEP on Saturday night.
Baseball opens the season this weekend at FedExPark. I went over there today, and it's a busy place. It's getting all cleaned up for the weekend. Coach Rock really scheduled a challenge for his team to open the season. Middle Tennessee is coming off a 40-win year, and another NCAA appearance for the Blue Raiders. They also feature one of the best players in the country in All American Bryce Brentz. Hopefully the weather holds out and they get all three games in. WUMR Sports Director Andrew Vandeventer will fill-in for me this weekend. Andrew called our games at Troy last season, so we're happy to have him back.
