3 run jack by USF puts them in the lead 4-2 in the 5th.

What’s our record?

Tough weekend, now the Coogs will have to make up these losses. Not sure if they play at USF but if do it will be a must-win series.

24-12, 2-4 in conference.

Definitely a tough weekend as the bats just couldn’t get going. We won’t play USF again unless we meet them in the conference tourney.

Just got to bounce back and it’s not going to be easy. Have to head to Tulsa this weekend.
