This morning, LSU slipped to No. 31 in the NET, making SLU’s win over the Tigers a Quad 2, not a Quad 1 (needs to be top 30). NC State won yesterday but slipped from No. 77 to No. 78, thus remaining a Quad 3 (needs to be at least 75).
With all the hullabaloo about the five guys lining up out of bounds to break the press, I went back and checked — I first wrote about the play in January 2019 after Baylor ran it. And all signs point to Illinois State coach Dan Muller as the creator of it.
Wins over Illinois and Ohio State in a 48-hour span got Michigan State into the at-large mix — but Maryland just threw some cold water on that for now. Terps beat the Spartans by 18 in College Park. Maryland’s going dancing. MSU final three: Indiana at home, Michigan twice.
Emily Groark, Hannah Larson and Sophia Stram scored goals and goalkeeper Emily Puricelli made five saves to lead the SLU women’s soccer team to a 3-1 upset of Arkansas, which is ranked No. 7 in the most recent United Soccer Coaches poll.
Incredibly sad news about Nix's death. I hope his friends, family and teammates can cherish these joyful memories.

Yes! I knew I would forget someone (or many who are) really good. 🤦♀️@MariahLGuzman is on her way to becoming a reporting star. :) @alec_busse is also really in tune to the team.
Brad Underwood's exuberant locker room entrances are becoming a thing. (A pretty hilarious thing, I might add.)
