Rike rakes under the radar

Louisiana Tech outfielder Brian Rike and the Bulldogs don't play this weekend, but that doesn't mean the Bulldogs aren't getting some attention.

In its college preview, Rike is featured in the Under the Radar segment. Among the notable facts about Rike is he currently leads the nation in home runs with 12 and he is the second Tech outfielder to be featured in the post. Jericho Jones was on the Web site in early February.

Tech is not playing this weekend, but several other state schools are -- and most are opening conference play.

While LSU's trip to South Carolina is a huge test for the Tigers, the most interesting series may involve Northwestern State, which travels to Southland newcomer Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. NSU has been an up-and-down team so far and making the long trip to the Texas coast is never easy. TAMU-CC has given some good teams trouble this season, pushing Texas in a midweek game before falling. NSU needs to find its groove, but this may not be the weekend it happens.
