Weekend wrap

It's been a couple of weeks since I did one of these as last weekend I was returning from Memphis and the Civil Rights Game. So with another weekend of college baseball in the books, what did we learn?

* We learned LSU is what we thought it was. The Tigers still haven't swept an SEC series, but winning series, like they did against Alabama, is always a good thing.

* We learned Louisiana Tech's struggles will continue in the WAC. Tech became the first WAC team to be swept at home in a conference series this year. Something is very badly wrong in Ruston.

* We learned Northwestern State has plenty of heart. After being no-hit for eight innings Friday night, the Demons put together a three-run ninth to nearly knock off McNeese. They did just that Saturday, sweeping a doubleheader from the Cowboys to move within a half-game of the Southland Conference lead.

* We learned Centenary's no fan of Omaha. The Gents' series with South Dakota State was moved to Omaha -- home of the College World Series. Apparently, it did not agree with the Gents, as they dropped all four games to start Summit League play.

* Finally, we learned Grambling remains a strong, under-the-radar team in the SWAC. If you're counting at home, GSU's sweep of Texas Southern makes it 11-4 in the conference.
