Championship finish: Texas ends dramatic season by winning first NCAA men’s tennis title hookem.com/2019/05/19/cha… via @bevobeat
A&M and Texas scheduled for 3:30 tomorrow at McCombs in elimination game. Nothing on the line (but a rivalry), right?
Bearkats used their ace, Lindsey McLeod, the former Westlake star, to earn only their second-ever NCAA playoff win. It's first-time Sam Houston has been in the tournament since 2007.
Fourth-seeded Sam Houston knocks off Longhorns at home, 2-1. UT and A&M will play an elimination game tomorrow.
Texas' Mike White had just switched pitchers, taking out starter Brooke Bolinger, who'd allowed only one hit, in favor of Shealyn O'Leary.
Sam Houston's Tiffany Thompson stuns Texas with two-run shot to dead center. Fourth-seeded Bearkats are up 2-1 in top of the sixth.
Mary Iakopo with the solo homer. It's Texas first home run since April 10th. It's her fourth of the season. Longhorns now with a 1-0 lead over Sam Houston.
Headed to top of 4th here at McCombs. It's still 0-0 Sam Houston against Texas. And I'm happy to be sitting in the AC.
Going to top of third here at McCombs with Sam Houston against UT. It's still 0-0. Key stat: both teams have combined for one base runner.
My vote is a ghost is haunting @kherman. He'll tell a joke and scare it away. twitter.com/davidmcswane/s…
Here at McCombs for NCAA softball. UT's Brooke Bolinger allowed one base runner (a walk) in first inning. It's 0-0 in bottom of first.
This is such sad info. Potentially run ruled by your rival at home. twitter.com/aasdanny/statu…

Now the FA derby begins. Some notable names include Longhorn WR Lil Jordan Humphrey and A&M LB Tyrel Dodson. Both had hoped to be drafted after turning pro a year early.
Oklahoma State DE Jordan Brailford is the next-to-last pick and is going to the Redskins.
Texas Tech LB Dakota Allen is pick No. 251. He's headed to the Rams. He'll always be known as the Last Chance U guy.

RT @billyliucci: The 12th Man is staying home baby! The movie script keeps writing itself @CGillaspia @HoustonTexans https://t.co/SzXOcGOlzb
TCU LB Ty Summers is going to Green Bay here in the 7th round.
And as @GabeBock points out, Aggies have 7 selections, which is school's most in NFL's seventh-round format.
Cullen Gillaspia, A&M's 12th Man, is headed to the Texans. Seventh round pick.
Kris Boyd was one of those players you'd see show up as a potential second-day pick, but ends up a late rounder. He's pick # 217.
Minnesota Vikings go for Texas corner Kris Boyd.
One more round of all this draft fun.
Texas A&M DB Donovan Wilson is a Dallas Cowboy at pick 213.
OU RB Rodney Anderson, who missed almost all of last season (and 2015 and 2016, too) is selected by the Bengals. Cincy picked A&M RB Trayveon Williams earlier in the round.
Duke Shelley represented the Big 12's 21st draft pick. That's one better than last year's total and seven more than the woeful 14 in 2017. (57 picks left in 2019)
K-State cornerback Duke Shelley is picked by Chicago at #205 in the sixth round. He's the second Wildcat selected.
West Virginia LB David Long is headed to the Titans. Mountaineers have had a nice draft. He's the fifth pick.
Finally. Trayveon Williams, who led SEC in rushing, hears his name. Headed to Bengals in 6th round.
OU kicker Austin Seifert will join Baker Mayfield with the Browns. He’s the sixth Sooner drafted.
Houston Texans get Longhorn Dlineman Charles Omenihu. He's first UT player to go.
Aggie DT Daylon Mack going to Baltimore in 5th round. He's second A&M d-lineman this round.
A&M's Kingskey Keke to the Packers. He's smart, versatile d-lineman. Played both tackle and end last season.
And that's Deionte Thompson, the Bama safety, headed to the Cardinals with the top pick of 5th round. He's repping the hometown. Go Orange.
RT @b_petty14: Does his camp counselor get tickets to the super bowl?? twitter.com/elite11/status…
We're up to 10 running backs taken in the draft. No Trayveon Williams so far. Rodney Anderson also is sitting out there waiting to hear his name.
That's the end of the fourth round. 138 picks down, only 120 picks more to go. Need some junk food for the fifth round.
Patriots tap Auburn QB Jarrett Stidham at end of fourth round.

Pittsburgh selected Kentucky RB Benny Snell. Now, I'm starting to wonder what's up with Trayveon Williams.
And OU's Ben Powers will play for Baltimore. Four Sooner linemen were selected among the first four rounds.
Another Mountaineer off the board - TE Trevon Wesco is going to the NY Jets. He's fourth WVU guy in draft
WVU WR Gary Jennings is headed to Seattle. He's the third Mountaineer to go and second receiver selected by the Seahawks.
