BOWLING GREEN, Ky. - The Western Kentucky University baseball team and head coach Chris Finwood announced the scheduled for the 2011 season Friday. Highlighting the slate are a total of 19 games against teams that made the NCAA tournament last year, including three-game home series against Louisiana-Lafayette and Florida Atlantic, along with home-and-home series with Vanderbilt and Louisville.
In all, 10 teams on the 2011 schedule appeared in the NCAA tournament last season.
We are heading into the last weekend of conference play for most teams across the country except for the West Coast schools who do not have postseason conference tournament. Here are ten series to watch this upcoming weekend.
We continue to bring you the lighter side of our great sport with another great rain delay video from the Western Kentucky and Florida Atlantic game over this past weekend. This is one of the better ones that I have seen in the last couple of years with some dancing and jokes played on the teams. Do you think it is better then the epic UConn-South Florida one from last year? (Click here for that one) My vote is still for the Division 3 danceoff between Lynchburg College and Christopher Newport University from two years ago. (Click here for that one).

#17 Coastal Carolina at #12 Clemson
The Chanticleers head to Clemson tonight to take on the Tigers in a key out of conference showdown between two squads battling it out for a regional host bid. Coastal Carolina enters with a 19-5 overall record but lost the final two games against San Diego this past weekend. Coastal Carolina will start junior lefthander Matt Rein (3-0, 1.23 ERA) on the mound. He will be making his first career start as he has made eight relief appearances for a total of 22.0 innings pitched this season. He has allowed 15 hits (.195 opponents’ batting average), no homers, and 10 walks with 11 strikeouts. He has also not allowed a stolen base. Rico Noel leads the CCU offense as he is hitting .356 with three homers and 24 RBI while stealing 19 bases in 22 attempts in the early portion of the schedule. Clemson enters with a 18-6 overall record after losing two out of three games to Virginia over the weekend. They will send Dominic Leone (1-0, 6.14 ERA) to the mound who will also be making his first career start, while making seven relief appearances for a total of 7.1 innings pitched. He has given up nine hits (.281 opponents’ batting average) and five walks with eight strikeouts. Clemson’s offense is led by Kyle Parker who is hitting .396 with 10 homers and 24 RBI on the year.
Anthony Gallas of Kent State went 5-6 at the plate while hitting for the cycle, driving in six runs, and scoring three times as the Golden Flashes defeated Winthrop 16-10. The cycle was the first by a Kent State player since Steve Smetana completed the feat in 1995. Kent State coach Scott Stricklin about Anthony Gallas, "He was really locked in and he hit the ball to all fields, He took the ball and pulled it and he hit it to the opposite field. That is the first time I have seen someone hit for the cycle in a while."
Here are my thoughts from the College Baseball action on Friday evening.
The UCLA offense came alive tonight by beating Oral Roberts 20-4. They were led on offense by Tyler Rahmatulla who went 2-3 including a homer with four RBI. The Bruins were off some days this week as they were taking finals at the end of the semester. UCLA is now a perfect 14-0 on the season.

Friday’s game will be LSU’s first televised game of the season and will air on Cox Sports Television (Cox cable channel 37 in Baton Rouge).
