Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

We start with news from your favorite sport. Vanderbilt bowling won two matches yesterday over Mount St. Mary’s and Medaille, the latter an upset winner over top seed Nebraska, in the opening day of the NCAA Championships. Thanks to the two wins, Vanderbilt advances to the regional final today at 3 PM CT, where they just need one win in two tries against either Nebraska or Medaille which will play today at 9 AM for the right to advance. Updates and links to live stream here. We will of course have a live thread for all this.

Vanderbilt baseball opens a three-game home series against Georgia tonight, with first pitch at 6 PM CT on the SEC Network. Andrew will have your series preview and game thread later today.

Women’s tennis opens its final weekend of the regular season with a match at Ole Miss today at 2 PM CT.

Women’s golf finished in a tie for second at the LSU Tiger Golf Classic, while men’s golf finished fourth in the Collegiate Invitational in Birmingham.

ICYMI: Jerry Stackhouse just got commitments from his two highest-rated recruits to date. The Hustler has more, in addition to discussion on VU Sports Wired (among other things; they also discuss Stephanie White’s firing.) A couple of former Commodores have new homes: Max Evans will play at TCU next season, while Koi Love, the women’s team’s star player, will transfer to Arizona — oh, just the national runners-up. And in the rumor mill, Minnesota associate head coach (and former head coach at The Citadel and Tulane) Ed Conroy is “likely” to join Jerry Stackhouse’s staff at Vanderbilt. We’re not actually sure which assistant coach is leaving, but Vanderbilt has had a job posting for an assistant men’s basketball coach for a few weeks now.
