A huge congrats to Greg Sands and the men’s golf team for advancing from the Columbus NCAA Regional to the NCAA Championships to be held in Stillwater at Karsten Creek (official site):
“This may be the most resilient team I’ve coached in 17 years,” Sands said. “They showed up big today. I had a good feeling after yesterday’s round and I saw a lot of things I really liked. It was such a relief to see them have a round like this, knowing what this tournament can do to top seeds. It’s the worst week of the year for college coaches. You can have a great year, but you have to come out here and be on for three days, or else you go home.”
Behind the strong arm of freshman Erin Edoundson, Texas Tech went on to beat SFA 1-0 yesterday in the National Invitational Softball Championship and will play the winner of UT Arlington today at 3:00 p.m. on the Southland Digital Network (official site).

Here’s Zhaire Smith getting up some jump shots in preparation for the NBA Draft.
Super impressive workout from Zhaire Smith. Shot is much further along than advertised. Made a ton tonight, including quite a few sequences of 4 and 5 threes in a row. Could very well be the best athlete in the draft. pic.twitter.com/bnb1vLdmYk
