Optional Musical Accompaniment
Vanderbilt baseball heads into the final week of the regular season, starting tonight with a home game against Florida International at 6:30 PM CT on the SEC Network+. That’s followed by a three-game series against Kentucky starting on Thursday, before we all go down to the tent city named for former President Herbert Hoover. Also, Jack Leiter’s the SEC Newcomer of the Week.
Men’s golf opened NCAA regional play in Kingston Springs yesterday by going 5-under par, with Reid Davenport holding the individual lead after shooting at 6-under 65 on the first of three days. Vanderbilt is in a tie for third and two shots behind co-leaders Kent State and NC State, who they’ll tee off with at 7:30 AM CT.
