2 S.E.C TEAMS ARE STILL ALIVE IN THE COLLEGE WORLD SERIES AND BOTH ARE IN THE SEMI FINALS…..
The night of college baseball in Omaha ended in dramatic fashion, leaving one of the favorites of the tournament alive. It was an elimination game between Stanford and Vanderbilt, and the latter, the commadors of the s.e.c., considered one of the favorites heading into the College World Series along with Texas, would survive with a 6-5 victory OVER THE CARDINAL, ELIMINATING STANFORD AND SENDING VANDERBILT INTO THE SEMI FINALS AGAINST N.C. STATE…..THEY PLAY FRIDAY..
TEXAS AND VIRGINIA PLAY TODAY WITH THE WINNER OF THAT SERIES TAKING ON THE MISSISSIPPI STATE BULLDOGS IN THE OTHER SEMI FINAL….

The Division I Board of Directors is likely to grant relief from existing regulations that prohibit athletes from benefiting off their name, image and likeness (NIL), creating a “bridge” to July 1 and beyond, sources tell CBS Sports. On that date, at least six states will have NIL laws going into effect. The NCAA has been scrambling to put its own rules in place to govern athletes in the remaining states.

The move is strategic by the NCAA. The idea is that the association will avoid enacting new rules that might be subject to lawsuits. For the moment, it would temporarily resolve the NCAA’s role in legislating what are basically going to be nearly unregulated NIL benefits. Members were increasingly nervous about that prospect after the Supreme Court highly criticized the NCAA while rendering its decision Monday in NCAA vs. Alston.

In essence, the action would be an interim waiver of existing NCAA rules that prohibit NIL benefits.

the st. louis cardinals find themselves in sole possession of 4th place in the n.l. central after dropping another to the celler dwellers of the a.l. central, the detroit tigers in the motor city and it started good, but that’s as far as it got…

THE SPRINGFIELD CARDINALS had the tying run at 3rd in the 9th and that’s where he stayed as the springbirds lost to the tulsa drillers, 4-3 last night…..
starting pitcher tyler pike gave up three runs on three hits in the 1st, then the left hander retired his final 16 batters in a row to carry the Cardinals through the 6th inning… right hander Ramon Santos retired his first three batters in the 7th, combining with Pike to put down 20 Drillers in a row from the final out in the 1st through the 7th, but the one run tulsa got in the 8th turned out to be the winner…
3B Brendan Donovan got the Cards on the board with a two-run home run in the 8th… RF Alec Burleson struck with an RBI single in the 9th, part of a 2-4 night… SS Delvin Perez went 1×3 with a single to extend his hitting streak to 10 games…

KANSAS CITY ROYALS

Aroldis Chapman bent over sharply and cursed at himself after blowing a save with a four-pitch bases-loaded walk and falling behind on an infield single. Just 13 minutes later, the closer and the rest of the Yankees were all smiles. Gary Sanchez’s tying home run off Greg Holland and Luke Voit’s winning single that landed inches from the top of the left-field fence sent them running onto the field with yet another late come-from-behind win.

ATLANTA HAWKS GENERAL MANAGER Travis Schlenk’s 2018 draft-night decision to trade Luka Doncic for Trae Young, and the future lottery pick that became Cam Reddish, had the makings of an all-time blunder. That wasn’t a knock on Young, who was an All-Star in his second season and made it obvious early in his rookie season that he was going to be a really good player. It’s just that Doncic was almost immediately one of the best players in the world.

Almost exactly three calendar years later, Doncic still hasn’t gotten the Mavericks out of the first round while Young has the Hawks up 1-0 on the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference finals AFTER ATLANTA SQUEEZED OUT A 116-113 WIN…

Young absolutely blistered the Bucks in Game 1 on Wednesday to the tune of a career-high 48 points. The Hawks also scored 24 points off his 11 assists.
