Baylor Baseball won a game, and there was much rejoicing. Granted, it was against 9-12 Sam Houston State, but it was still a win, and that means something.

Baylor Football Pro Day
Just over 12 hours until we get things started. Exclusive #ProDayBU coverage here: http://t.co/jg8GUuhxxH. #SicEm pic.twitter.com/1A9PEb8awz— Baylor Football (@BUFootball) March 18, 2015
Pro day is today, so Baylor's graduating football seniors will have a chance to show off for pro scouts. Bryce Petty, Antwan Goodley, Bryce Hager, Spencer Roth, and others potentially have a lot to gain from today. Petty can confirm his place as the third-most valued quarterback in the draft, Goodley can work on breaking press coverage, and Hager can confirm that his general beastliness is capable of transferring to the NFL. Coverage starts at 10:30 Central.
March Madness Daily Guide
16 seeds North Florida and Robert Morris will play today at 5:30 Central, to be followed by 11 seeds Dayton and Boise State at 8. Baylor fans may have a slight investment in North Florida, as their coach is a product of the Scott Drew coaching tree. If North Florida beats Robert Morris, they'll advance to play Duke. Dayton and Boise State are fighting over a date with Providence.

Sarah Beth Toben was credited with both wins after coming in late in each game, allowing one hit in three scoreless innings. Multiple players had multiple hits in both games, but Coach Moore noted in the postgame that despite the upside and quality play of the team so far, he feels like pitching has stagnated somewhat and he sees unfulfilled potential in the team as a whole.
