Good morning.

Vanderbilt signee Darius Garland had a game-high 11 assists in last night’s McDonald’s All-American Game. (The bad news: Garland also went 0-for-7 from the floor.) Meanwhile, unsigned prospect and Vanderbilt target Romeo Langford had 19 points in the game. Garland and Simi Shittu spent some time recruiting Langford this week.

The women’s lacrosse team lost to Oregon by a 17-12 score on Wednesday afternoon, dropping their record to 6-4 on the season.

Women’s bowling earned an NCAA Tournament berth for the 13th year in a row. The championship will be held April 12-14 at the Tropicana Lanes in St. Louis.

Women’s tennis player Astra Sharma was named the SEC Player of the Week.

Oh yeah, Opening Day is here. If you’re like me, you’ll be on the MLB.TV all day as work permits.

Yes, yes, ESPN has an article titled “Why the Yankees Being Good is Great for Baseball.” This is the sort of sportswriting I despise: blatant, unabashed homerism for the dominant franchise in the sport. Meanwhile, ESPN’s college basketball home page is currently all about Duke, who’s not even playing in the Final Four. Great.
