1. Volleyball Looks to Continue Win Streak Against Davidson

[“I think we’re improving daily in all phases,” said head coach Chad Callihan. “With the new coaching staff we’re just beginning to get acclimated. We’re picking out things here and there that we need to improve on, but we’re working on all phases and building some confidence. As long as we can continue to grow that confidence it’s going to feed our competitiveness and our demeanor on the court.”]


2. Eagles begin preps for App

[Samair Baker practiced with the scout team on Monday. When asked, Hatcher gave no reason as to why Baker did not practice with the first or second teams, said he did not know whether Baker would start on Saturday and said his playing status is questionable.]


3. Hatcher: GSU prepares for 'Almighty' Edwards

["We've been so close all season long, and to be able to beat App at home would put us a step closer towards this run we're hoping to make towards the playoffs," Hatcher said. "It may be the game that gets us over the hump that we've been looking to have."]


4. Upcoming opponent ASU rode senior leadership

["(Senior leadership) is always good to have," Georgia Southern coach Chris Hatcher said. "The thing about (Appalachian State players) is they've won a lot of games and built up a winning tradition. That's where we're trying to get."]


5. Ogilvy feels pressure of home crowds

And with just three tournaments to go, including the $1.5 million Tour Championship the Down Under Brigade look certain to have at least four players – Jarrod Lyle, Greg Chalmers, Aron Price and Marc Leishman – graduate to the 2009 US PGA Tour.]


7. Behind the scenes: Jayhawk Media Day

[They’re not sure how bad he’s hurt yet, but Southeast’s Adonis Gantt (a Division I signee at Georgia Southern) hurt his knee at a jamboree in Dallas over the weekend, which is bad news.]


8. Cowley, Hutch men picked for division titles

[Eck has already had to deal with injuries again this season after freshman Adonis Gantt, a Southeast product who originally signed with Division I-A Georgia Southern, hurt his knee Saturday at a preseason jamboree in Dallas. "We don't know how bad it is yet," Eck said. "We did bring in some talented freshmen and a big part of our success will be how quickly they adapt."]
