March 2: Three Big Things


Across the board, Georgia State makes noise

The Panthers’ baseball team knocked off the No. 3 Vanderbilt Commodores Friday night in a 4-2 upset win, the most significant victory in its history. Hours later, the women’s and men’s basketball teams picked up big wins over South Alabama to end their regular seasons. 

The men swept the Jaguars to clinch the No. 1 seed in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament, and the women also completed their sweep to lock up a second seed. Both teams will play Saturday in the semi-finals; the women play at 3 p.m. and the men at 6:30 p.m.


An investment group with Renee Montgomery purchases Atlanta Dream

After months of backlash and scrutiny, former Georgia Senator Kelly Loeffler sold the Atlanta Dream on Friday. Joining Montgomery on the new ownership group will be Larry Gottesdeiner and Suzanne Abair of Northland Investment Corp. The WNBPA unanimously approved the purchase.

Montgomery will also make history, becoming the first WNBA player to hold an executive and ownership position for a franchise. She will look to have a more active role within the team than other executives.


Major League Baseball is back

This past weekend’s warm weather provided baseball fans with hope: spring training is back. Games began on Sunday, and with games slated for the next month, players will have a little time to prepare before Opening Day on April 1.

The Los Angeles Dodgers enter the season with the best odds to win the World Series, followed by the New York Yankees, San Diego Padres and Atlanta Braves.
