LSU and former defensive coordinator John Chavis have filed lawsuits against each other. At issue is whether Chavis owes LSU 400-thousand dollars. LSU claims he does, based on a buyout clause in his contract, but Chavis says he took the proper steps to avoid the buyout when he accepted the defensive coordinator position with Texas A & M.
On the baseball diamond…LSU opened a three-game series with Princeton with a three to two victory over the Ivy League school last night. Jake Fraley had a couple of hits and drove in a run and Jared Poche picked up the win on the mound. LSU and Princeton will play a doubleheader today at 4 pm, because of anticipated rainy weather on Sunday.
In other action yesterday…Alabama beat the Cajuns six to four and McNeese State defeated Texas San Antonio six to five in ten innings. For the second time in as many games Connor Lloyd had the game winning hit.
The 2015 football schedules have been released for UL Lafayette and ULM. The Ragin Cajuns will have two road games in a five day span as they’ll visit Georgia State on November 7th and then play South Alabama in Mobile on November 12th.
ULM has a non-conference game at Hawaii. So they’ll play 13 games this season, including road trips to Alabama and Georgia to begin the season on September 5th.
In the NBA…the Pelicans won their fourth straight last night as they defeated the Miami Heat 104-102. New Orleans won without Anthony Davis, but his back-up filled in nicely. Alexis Ajinca had a career-high 24 points and eight rebounds and also scored the winning bucket after getting a nice feed from Eric Gordon, who had 20 points.
College hoops….LSU hosts Ole Miss at one o’ clock today. Louisiana Tech hosts Texas-San Antonio, ULM is at Appalachian State, the Cajuns host Georgia Southern. And McNeese State hosts Nicholls State.
