Good morning from Murfreesboro -- and we mean morning. FIU (31-22) opens the SBC Tournament against South Alabama (31-25) at 9 a.m. local time. The wakeup call for the Golden Panthers this morning: 5 a.m. On the mound: USA's D.D. Hanks (9-6, 4.58 ERA) vs. FIU's R.J. Fondon (5-2, 3.78). First pitch in a bit.
But first, the game advance.
