Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt pounded Kentucky by an 8-2 score on Friday night, setting up the series (and regular season) finale this afternoon at 2 PM CT on the SEC Network+. And thanks to Tennessee’s loss to South Carolina last night, Vanderbilt simply needs to win today to clinch the SEC East title, though the overall SEC title is out of reach with Arkansas still a game and a half up on the Commodores. (Thanks, rain, for cancelling that Sunday game against Alabama.)

As for last night’s game, well, Vanderbilt came back from a 2-0 deficit and then piled it on in the late innings. It ended up being fun, even if it wasn’t fun for a long time. The Hustler has more.

Louise Yu and Celina Sattelkau are in a tie for 52nd at the NCAA Championship after shooting 3-over par in the first round on Friday.

An open letter from Candice Storey Lee to the fans.

Anyway, I’m gonna be watching the PGA Championship all day. Have fun.
