Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

(Above music selection is a tribute to Kentucky, which lol lost to 15-seed Saint Peter’s last night.)

Vanderbilt bowling hosts the Music City Classic this weekend starting today at 9:30 AM. Streaming is on Vanderbilt’s YouTube channel. This is the last tournament of the season and then it’s on to the Southland Bowling League tournament next weekend, followed by the NCAA regionals.

Women’s basketball dominated the second half to beat Murray State 73-47 in the first round of the WNIT last night. The Commodores will next face Liberty in the second round on Monday night at Memorial Gym.

Baseball allegedly opens SEC play this weekend, at least if you accept the SEC’s assertion that Missourah (spits) is an SEC member. Game 1 is tonight at 6:00 PM CT on the SEC Network+. By the way, the Sunday game has been moved up to noon thanks to basketball’s NIT second-round home game against Dayton getting scheduled for 2:00 PM on ESPN2.

Men’s tennis will play a doubleheader today, hosting LSU at 1 PM and Alabama A&M at 4:30 PM. Women’s tennis plays at Texas A&M at 5:00 PM CT.
