Good morning.

The big news from Sunday will be the baseball team’s walk-off, eleventh-inning, 7-5 win over Hawaii (Isaiah Thomas hit a three-run homer to win it.) But that wasn’t the only big win of the day.

Women’s basketball picked up its first win over a ranked team in 29 tries as the Commodores beat #15 Kentucky, 70-64, on Senior Day. Mariella Fasoula had 24 points in her final home game. Vanderbilt finishes the regular season with a record of 14-15, 4-12 in the SEC, and will go into the SEC Tournament (which starts on Wednesday) as the 12-seed.

And that wasn’t even the biggest win of Sunday. Lacrosse beat #10 Denver by a 14-13 score, improving to 4-2 on the season and picking up the program’s first win over a top 10 team in six years.

Women’s tennis beat Mississippi State, 4-3, in Starkville to even their SEC record at 1-1. (The athletic department’s website doesn’t seem to want to talk about the men’s team, though, which lost 6-1 to Texas A&M.)

Bowling finished fourth at the Hawk Flight Invite after a disappointing Sunday. Men’s golf shot 2-under par on Sunday, the first day of the Cabo Collegiate, and sits in a tie for fifth place, four shots off the lead.
