SOU football – Keegan Lawrence

With an average of 7 yards per carry during his freshman season last year, what will Keegan do for an encore during his sophomore season this fall?

BTW, Southern Oregon is #1 in the nation in the Director’s Cup which looks at a school’s entire athletic program. Full standings can be seen here.

Four softball games at home this week

@SOURaiders @SOU_Softball

The SOU softball team’s Spring “Break” consists of six games. They were supposed to play two today in Eugene, but those were rained out. They will play two tomorrow in Klamath Falls. Friday and Saturday will feature doubleheaders in Ashland. I’m on my way to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho for my Spring Break so I won’t see any of these games.

The Southern Oregon men’s basketball team upset #10 Midland University earlier today to move on to the next round of the NAIA Championship Tourney. The SOU women won yesterday. The women will play at 6:30 a.m. PST on Friday (3/13/15), and the men will play at about 11:45 a.m. Details and links to live stats and video here.

As I mentioned before, with a large amount of NAIA teams (and NAIA headquarters) coming out of the middle part of the country, there is bias in the polling against teams not from the Midwest. This is especially true for football, where the Frontier Conference is routinely snubbed, but the CCC is showing this is true for basketball as well. The Cascade Conference is 5-1 in the tournament so far, and even the one loss could have gone the other way.

SOU will be the favorite in both of Friday’s games so hopefully there will be no upsets in the Round of 16. This is the first time both teams have been in the Sweet 16 in school history.

The walls of the McNeal Pavilion are packed with photos of SOU’s student-athletes of the past decades. There is no space for more. So in what was likely my last photo opportunity in McNeal today, I took some photos for the future building that will be taking its place in fall of 2016.
