Grambling keeps its historic season alive after they defeated Montana State in overtime 88 to 81. A big contributor in the Tigers win was Senior Guard Jourdan Smith who scored 18 points and had 10 rebounds in the game. Smith says that he was determined to not let Grambling’s historic season end in the First Four.

Cut (20) “… good test.”

And the Pelicans will try to exceed their win total from last year when they take on the Orlando Magic tonight at 6:00 pm. The Pelicans are currently two and a half point favorites to beat the Magic and are only one game behind the Clippers for the fourth spot in the Western Standings.

LSU football will look to replicate the offensive success it found last year without Jayden Daniels, Malik Nabers, and Brian Thomas Jr. who are projected to be first round picks in this year’s NFL draft.

Cut 16 (17) “… self too.”

UL-Lafayette’s 31 game win streak over Louisiana Tech in softball ended yesterday when the Bulldogs defeated the Ragin’ Cajuns 5 to 3.
