We don’t have much to write about with Vanderbilt today, but the Masters tees off today.

PGA: Masters Tournament - Par 3 Contest Rob Schumacher-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

The Vanderbilt women’s lacrosse improved to 3-1 in Big East play with a 17-6 win over Cincinnati, forcing 20 turnovers in the win. This is the part where I admit that I actually don’t know anything about lacrosse.

Women’s tennis, ranked second in the country, takes on Texas A&M at 4:00 PM CT today. This is the second to last home game of the season, and Vanderbilt will be honoring seniors Astra Sharma and Payton Robinette (yes, Patton’s sister, to answer the obvious question) on Sunday. Vanderbilt will live stream today’s matches for those interested.

Over at the Vanderbilt Hustler, sports editors Cutler Klein and Max Schneider talk about the MTSU loss and the pursuit of Romeo Langford in a podcast.

David Sisk over at VandySports.com has some insider info about transfers Vanderbilt might be looking into ($). Obviously, Romeo Langford is target A, B, and C in the late signing period (and there’s also E.J. Montgomery), but Bryce Drew might add a transfer if that falls through with two available scholarships.

Off the West End

The Masters is this weekend, and I’m having a hard time remembering the last time things seemed so wide open. This should be fun.

Podcast Ain’t Played Nobody talked about the upcoming ESPN+ app. Just a guess, but ESPN+ isn’t going to be showing any SEC games until the current contract expires. Right now, ESPN is locked into so many contracts that most major sports are still going to be on cable; they’ll just throw niche stuff onto streaming.

Kansas’ Malik Newman declared for the NBA Draft and will sign with an agent. Kansas has been the mostly-forgotten third potential suitor for Romeo Langford, and Malik Newman plays the same position as Langford. This might be meaningful or it might not be, who the hell knows.

Carson Fulmer went five innings in his first start of the season in a White Sox win in Toronto.
