Softball beats Troy 4-1 in Sun Belt tournament

With Mariah Dawson pitching, FIU dumped Troy 4-1 and will face the winner of No. 2 seed South Alabama vs. No. 7 Louisiana-Monroe Thursday.

So, let's just say they'll be facing South Alabama tomorrow.

SUBHEAD

In talking to Turtle Thomas for the story that ran in The Herald today on Mike Martinez, I asked him if the team missed Martinez in the season opening series against top 10 ranked Rice. Martinez, for a violation of team rules, didn't play in the series.

Thomas nodded that he thought Martinez would've made a difference in the extra innings loss, which FIU led 4-3 late in the game. Having Martinez's bat could've meant an extra run, thus giving FIU a big early season win.

Thomas figures the only way back to the NCAA Regionals is to win the Sun Belt tournament. He thinks only one Sun Belt team will make it and he's probably right -- FAU has the conference's best RPI at No. 78 in the nation. FIU is No. 118

When will it ever stop?? The program is once again an eeasrrbasmmnt something I thought Doc would be able to change when he was hired. Doc is a good man, but he doesn't have what this program needs. Year six and the Huskers are dealing with record margins of defeat at home. I know OSU has a great team, but come on no excuse for getting outright bludgeoned on your home court, especially after you just beat the #11 team in the country.NU now has some of the best facilities in the country now it's time to go after one of the best coaches and put an end to this futility.
