March 30: Three Big Things

Men’s tennis puts on clinic against Georgia Southern

The Panthers swept the Eagles across two doubles matches and five singles matches in the infamous Stat-Southern rivalry on Saturday. 

Mihai Marinescu and Vazha Shubladze cruised to a win. Andrei Duarte and Roberts Grinvalds also picked up a win in doubles. Marinescu and Shubladze also won their singles matches, with Andrei Duarte, Kevin Huynh and Patrick Lazo completing the sweep.


The Braves are back in action and ready for revenge

The Atlanta Braves will begin their season on the road Thursday against the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Braves came within one win of advancing to their first World Series since 1999 last season but fell short to the eventual champion Los Angeles Dodgers. 

However, with another year of experience for young sluggers Ronald Acuna, Jr. and Ozzie Albies and reigning NL MVP Freddie Freeman fully healthy, the Braves could certainly have an entertaining season ahead of them. 


Deshaun Watson’s future is in jeopardy

Houston Texans franchise quarterback Deshaun Watson has been accused by 19 women of sexual assault and inappropriate conduct.

The first allegations came just days after reports that Watson had requested a trade from the Texans. 

The women claim not to want money or attention, but rather “a change in behavior concerning Watson, and a change of culture in the NFL.” An NFL spokesperson acknowledged the situation, and the league is taking it under review.
