A 10 Tournament

Odd Story from St. Bonaventure

St. Bonaventure head coach Larry Sudbrook received a plea bargain after carrying a .357 Magnum revolver onto a commercial airplane at the Buffalo Airport on May 10th. The Bonnies were traveling down to Charlotte for a key Atlantic 10 showdown when Sudbrook was arrested for having the weapon in his carryon bag. He ended up getting a thousand dollar fine and will give up possession of the gun. He could face disciplinary action from the university after a panel reviews the case.

Sudbrook led the Bonnies to a 25-27 record in 2007 as the team finished in sixth place in the Atlantic 10 conference.

The CBB checks out UMass-Richmond

The College Baseball Blog made the trek out to Amherst to check out the Richmond Spiders and UMass Minutemen in Atlantic 10 action. Richmond jumped all over Minuteman starter Tim Comisky for three runs in the first two innings but Comisky used an appeal play on a sacrifice fly to pick up the third out in the second inning in which Richmond head coach Ron Atkins was ejected for arguing with home plate umpire Steve Drescher. Richmond tacked on a run in the sixth inning on a Alex Wotring solo homer and two runs in the seventh to get a 6-0 lead. UMass bats finally came to life in the bottom of seventh when the Minutemen put together four hits and took advantage of an error to scratch across four runs. The Spiders brought in closer Brian Alas who shut the door in his 2.1 innings to pick up the victory.
