1. Eagles Take Opener Against #8 Georgia Tech, 6-5

[“To me it was just another game. I was trying to focus on just one pitch at a time. (Pitching) coach Beverlin told me to keep the ball down and that’s what I tried to do,” said Bobo. “Our offense is huge, it doesn’t matter who it is one through nine in the line-up, different people have come through. As a team, it is a big win. I think all the pressure was on them being ranked eighth, and we came out ready to play.”]


2. Eagles Bounce Back to Top Jacksonville, 5-2

[“I’m really proud of the team to win since we haven’t beaten them in a long time,” said Bonner. “I was very happy with the top half playing so solidly today.”]


3. Eagles Claim Third Place and Three Top-15 Individual Finishes in John Hayt Invitational

[“We hung in there on a tough golf course with greens that were hard to land on and gusty winds the entire tournament,” said head coach Larry Mays. “But we persevered on a championship style course and beat some top ranked teams. We can definitely take some confidence out of it.”]


4. Softball Travels to Atlanta to Face Georgia State Wednesday

[The Georgia Southern softball team (6-5) travels to Atlanta, Ga. Wednesday to face Georgia State (4-6) in a doubleheader at 3 p.m.]


5. Take that Tech

[“Last weekend (against Presbyterian) I kind of got in a little trouble, but the offense came back and picked me up,” Bobo said. “I had no worries. If (the Yellow Jackets) would have come back and tied it, there was no doubt in my mind we’d come back and put up another run.”]


6. Around FCS: It's about time

[Schoenhoft was one of two prominent Ohio State quarterback transfers last season, along with Antonio Henton, who landed at Georgia Southern. Henton had much more success in his sophomore year with the Eagles, starting nine games and leading the team in rushing (628 yards) and passing (1,852 yards). But Henton walked away from some Georgia Southern conditioning drills earlier this month, and has quit the Eagle program.]


7. 5 things: Texas Troubles, Injuries, Curry FT's Overrated?

[Now it is highly unlikely, even with Curry not at 100%, that the Wildcats do not win the Southern Conference regular season title. They are in first place by two games, and their remaining three games are against UNC-Greensboro, Georgia Southern, and Elon – three of the worst teams in the conference. However, the Southern Conference Tournament could be ripe for a shocking upset.]


8. Terriers Face Tall Task

[The key matchup in this game will be between two Division I players in Ridgewood 6-foot-8 senior center Lukas Poderis (East Tennessee State) and King 6-8 senior power forward Toarlyn Fitzpatrick (Georgia Southern).]
