Diamondbacks Pitching Stellar; Bats Fall Flat In Loss

PHOENIX, AZ- The Arizona Diamondbacks are still trying to find their identity on offense as they dropped their third straight on the young season. This includes tonight’s 2-1 loss to the San Diego Padres.

Three Tulane Basketball Players Announce That They Are Entering the Transfer Portal

Yesterday, within 20 minutes of each other, sophomore Caleb Daniels and freshman Connor Crabtree announced that they would be entering the NCAA transfer portal. The third blow came this afternoon when freshman Moses Wood also announced that he would be looking to transfer.

Many fans were optimistic that Tulane might escape this coaching change without any transfers. In his introductory press conference, new Head Coach Ron Hunter stated that there were players that wanted to transfer when he arrived who no longer did after meeting him.
