–Here’s a closer look at the disappointing weekend that was for Kentucky baseball as they failed to take advantage of an opportunity to win the SEC regular season title. Their loss, combined with LSU’s win over South Carolina, means that LSU owns the top spot in the conference while the Gamecocks ended up winning the Eastern Division.
–It was a tough weekend for UK Softball, as well, as their season ended last night in a 3-2 loss to Louisville in the NCAA tournament. Kentucky beat Valparaiso earlier in the day to stay alive in the double-elimination format, but their comeback bid against the Cards came up short and Louisville moves on to a rematch with Michigan, who already both teams. UK finishes the season 30-30.
–In case you missed the action in the NBA playoffs last night, we’ll get you caught up. We’ll start with Spurs-Clippers, where Eric Bledsoe was the star of the show in game 2. This time around, though, he could only manage 2 points and San Antonio erased a huge first-half deficit to beat LA 96-86 and take a 3-0 series lead.
–In the day’s other game, the Thunder managed a 4th-quarter comeback win over the Lakers, which gave them a 3-1 lead in the series and put them on the brink of the Western Conference Finals. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook combined for 68 of OKC’s 103 points in the win.
–We’ll finish by checking in on the happenings at Pimlico yesterday, where I’ll Have Another won a thrilling Preakness and will now have a shot to be the first Triple Crown winner since 1978 when he runs the Belmont in three weeks.
