Weekend wrap

The first weekend of college baseball season has come and gone for Division I teams and here's what we have we learned:

* We learned Louisiana Tech can beat up on Southland Conference pitching -- and hold down SLC hitting. Tech dominated McNeese State in all phases of the game in a weekend sweep.

* LSU is back on the upswing, but not nearly where it used to be. In the good old days, LSU would have swept Indiana in much the same way Tech did McNeese.

* NSU has made strides. The Demons dropped a game to Grambling, but that's going to happen. Not all win streaks -- no matter how long -- last forever. Just ask Notre Dame and Navy football.

* Centenary is much improved. The Gents closed out a solid opening weekend with a one-run win over Northern Iowa, something that dogged them a year ago.

* Finally, LSUS keeps rolling along. The Pilots roughed up LSU-Alexandria over the weekend in a step outside of Gulf Coast Athletic Conference play.
