Unlike last weekend, there is plenty of things to keep you occupied this weekend, beyond the basketball game at Tennessee.

Unlike last weekend, there is plenty of things to keep you occupied this weekend, beyond the basketball game at Tennessee:

  • The Fighting Pingetons only chance to make the NCAA tournament is to win the SEC tournament this weekend in suburban Atlanta. The ladies get things started tonight against 7th seeded Commodores at 5. A win here will see them playing Kentucky tomorrow night.
  • As previously discussed, the 5/7 ranked softball team takes on the 7/5 ranked Texas A&M Aggies in their home opener at University Field. The Aggies took 2 of 3 in this fixture last year in the Big 12, with Chelsea Thomas picking up both of the losses.
  • The gymnastics team hosts their final home meet of the season against Illinois. They are coming off a 2nd place finish in the quad meet at Arkansas last weekend.
  • The baseball team looks to add to the win column by hosting a series against San Francisco. The Tigers picked up their first two wins of the season in a Wednesday doubleheader against Eastern Michigan and sit 2-6 on the season.
  • The wrestling team heads to Buffalo for the MAC Championships, where they hold 6 of the 9 top seeds. The wrasslin' Tigers look to end Central Michigan's 11 year run as MAC tourney champions.
