Good and bad day for local teams

A bad day for LSU was equally as good for Northwestern State.

While the Tigers dropped a 4-1 decision at Vanderbilt, putting a dent in their SEC Tournament hopes, the Demons put together a two-out, ninth-inning rally to save their season.

NSU, which hosts the Southland Conference Tournament next week, needs to sweep Central Arkansas this weekend AND get some help to reach the SLC Tournament. The Demons took a huge step toward that Thursday night, even if Stephen F. Austin didn't help NSU's cause.

The SEC and SLC started their series early this weekend to give the teams who qualify for their conference tournaments an extra day or two of rest. Here's hoping the early starts and finishes like Thursday don't go unnoticed because of starting a day earlier.
