Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt baseball hosts Mississippi State this weekend. Fun fact: the Bulldogs are ranked fourth in the country and also are limited to 11.7 scholarships, unlike some college baseball teams. First pitch tonight is at 7 PM CT and the game will be televised on the SEC Network. Andrew has your series preview and game thread coming later today.

Men’s golf shot 8-over par on Thursday at the SEC Championships. The Commodores are eight shots behind Alabama and tied for sixth in the championship currently; remember, the top eight after Friday move on to the eight-team match play tournament over the weekend.

Lacrosse hosts the Wet Hets to close out the regular season, with the first of two games today at 2 PM CT with a live stream on YouTube.

And I missed this the other day, but the men’s basketball team has hired a couple of new assistant coaches: Ed Conroy, the former head coach at The Citadel and Tulane, and Michael Curry, formerly the head coach for Florida Atlantic and the Detroit Pistons. With those moves, Damany Hendrix and Faragi Phillips have been reassigned to off-court roles on the staff.
