Their resolve to show up and play well when it mattered the most today was a great sign of leadership and the investment they have in Oklahoma State.” As far as the game itself, the Cowboys coach enjoyed the pitcher’s duel, but thought his hurler was quite impressive. “I thought Carson went out and pitched about as good of a game as you can pitch against a very fine team. Teel ended the inning with a strike out and a fly ball to left field. An inning later, Teel allowed a one-out single and hit the next batter to put two on base. After a Matt Kroon walk, Colin Simpson single and Christian Funk walk to load the bases, Littell came up to the plate without a hit on the day. It felt great to get us going.” It was an extra special day for Littell as he was able to watch his dad coach the OSU women’s basketball team to an NCAA Tournament win over Syracuse. They got a good one and hopefully they can keep it up.” OSU’s Brady Basso replaced Teel to start the eighth inning and allowed one run in the eighth and ninth innings. Lienhard gave up a swinging bunt single that scored the ninth inning run. It’s exciting to win with these guys.” Holliday was also impressed by the play, considering who was on deck for the Bears. I was really excited to help get our team back on track.” Carson Teel Oklahoma State pitcher
The Dallas Cowboys announced they will part with veteran cornerback Orlando Scandrick. The post-June 1 release designation will save the Cowboys $3 million. Scandrick appeared in 125 games over nine seasons with the Cowboys, who selected him in the fifth round of the 2008 draft. The move comes after ESPN.com's Todd Archer reported Scandrick had requested the team release him this offseason. Because of that, some may question whether the team would've been better off waiting until June 1 to release Scandrick, considering Dallas would've saved $3 million with nearly $2.3 million in dead money. That route would've left Scandrick in a tougher position, though, since teams likely already would've made their biggest offseason moves to address the secondary. Scandrick's desire for a change of scenery was understandable. While he started 11 games for the Cowboys in 2017, he looked destined for a lesser role in 2018. Second-year duo Jourdan Lewis and Chidobe Awuzie will comprise Dallas' cornerback partnership of the future, and Awuzie in particular is likely to assume more duties next year. The 31-year-old saw the writing on the wall toward the end of last season, per the Dallas Morning News' Kate Hairopoulos: "The young players here....they're playing well together right now.

(Editor’s Note: While the start of the 2017 NFL Draft isn’t until April 26, it’s never too early to profile some of the key participants. Today’s featured player is Alabama’s Rashaan Evans.) Name: Rashaan Evans Position: Linebacker College: Alabama Height/Weight: 6-1 / 232 Honors: As a senior, Evans was named first-team All-SEC by the AP and he was among 15 semifinalists for the Butkus Award, given to the nation’s best linebacker. Where He’s Projected: Draft observers generally have Evans in the back part of the first round. How He Helps The Cowboys: Although it’s possible the Cowboys eventually sign a veteran linebacker in free agency, it shouldn’t surprise anyone if they look to the draft and a deep class at the position, too. Evans has the size and speed to rush and cover from the middle linebacker spot in a 4-3 scheme – the spot vacated by Anthony Hitchens, who signed with the Chiefs this week. Quick to react. Will fall back inside to make tackles. He’s generally around the ball. See him as a MIKE linebacker in the Cowboys’ scheme.
13 seed North Carolina Greensboro, however, it looked as if that streak might come to an end — never more so than when Spartans senior forward Jordy Kuiper cleaned up a missed shot and scored with 1:46 remaining to give UNC Greensboro a two-point lead. “These first-round games are hard. And I think people get a little misled when they see the seed numbers up there. Despite Gonzaga (31-4) doing precisely what it hoped by forcing UNC Greensboro into a long game from behind the three-point arc — it went 0 for 13 from three-point range in the first half and 3 for 22 for the game — Greensboro was able to hang around. Junior guard Demetrius Troy tried to deliver an ambitious alley-oop to a cutting James Dickey on the baseline. And after the Bulldogs answered with a jumper from redshirt junior guard Josh Perkins with 54 seconds left to tie it at 64, UNC Greensboro never led again. We were going to come out swinging.” And while UNC Greensboro certainly did that, that aggression cost the Spartans multiple times. But junior guard Francis Alonso wound up getting stuck and launched an ugly shot off the side of the backboard. “We’ll have to go through the film and look at that.” It is precisely because Miller’s team didn’t execute in those final 90 seconds that the Spartans are headed back to Greensboro and Gonzaga will remain here to face No. “I looked at Coach and said, ‘We’ve got this.

What was former Cowboys and Oklahoma head coach Barry Switzer doing Tuesday night? Just casually hanging out two blocks from the White House. Switzer was in D.C. for a goodbye party for White House Deputy Chief of Staff Rick Dearborn. Switzer said on Twitter that Dearborn is a friend of his. Switzer then tweeted a picture of him with White House adviser Kellyanne Conway. While Baker Mayfield is Oklahoma's Heisman Trophy winner, Switzer says his is Conway. Switzer has hung out around politicians before. He was at Trump Tower soon after Donald Trump was elected president in 2016, and said he was there to interview to be Trump's "secretary of offense."
