NCAA Softball Tourney Rekindles Border War


On a day highlighted by the revival of a Border War contest between the Kansas Jayhawks and the Missouri Tigers, the end result was a disappointment for the KU softball team.  The Jayhawks lost a pair of games yesterday (SAT) to drop out of the NCAA tournament.  Missouri sent the Jayhawks into the loser's bracket with a 6-3 victory yesterday (SAT) afternoon.  Then after upsetting Nebraska the day before, KU couldn't do it again last (SAT) night.  The Huskers got by KU, 2-1, to advance to today's (SUN) regional championship game.  KU ended its season with a 34-23 record.


In the NCAA Division II baseball tournament, Emporia State has reached the regional championship game in Russellville, Arkansas.  But the Hornets face the tough task of needing two victories today (SUN) against Minnesota-Mankato to advance to the Elite Eight.  The Hornets came up with two victories yesterday (SAT), one against Arkansas Tech and the other against Augustana, to avoid elimination.
