Saturday live thread: Softball goes for a series win, and the SEC goes in the Final Four

Jamie Squire

It was almost a fantastic night on the collective diamond last night -- Tori Finucane fanned 12 as Mizzou Softball shut out Mississippi State, 6-0, and Brett Graves struck out nine and allowed one earned run in 7.1 innings against Georgia. But the Fightin' Jamiesons couldn't generate any offense and eventually fell, 2-1, in 13 innings.

So let's make today a fantastic day on the diamond instead! And go SEC or something.

2:00 p.m. CT
BASEBALL: Georgia at Missouri (GameTracker)

3:00 p.m. CT
SOFTBALL: Missouri at Mississippi State

5:09 p.m. CT
FINAL FOUR: No. 1 Florida vs. No. 7 UConn (TBS)

7:49 p.m. CT
FINAL FOUR: No. 2 Wisconsin vs. No. 8 Kentucky (TBS)

And while we wait for the action to start ... have you seen yesterday's pictures from the East Side Expansion? I think Gary Pinkel should start wearing that hard hat during games, too.
