And if you find yourself with a little free time over the holiday weekend, feel free to join my chat!CHIP'S MEMORIAL DAY WKEND CHAT.
Lots to talk about ...
* The 5th-seeded Texas baseball team getting a third-straight complete-game performance from its starting pitching (this time it was Connor Mayes giving up two hits while recording 10 strikeouts in a 4-0 win over Baylor) to reach the Big 12 Championship vs Oklahoma State on Sunday.
And Tres Barrera is 3-for-7 in UT's last two games with 3 RBIs and 3 runs scored, including a walk-off, bases-loaded single in a 4-3 victory over Baylor on Thursday.
* The Texas men's doubles team of Lloyd Glasspool and Soren Hess-Olesen reached the semifinals of the NCAA Championships. They were playing Baylor's 8th-ranked Diego Galeano and Julian Lenz Sunday. It marks the third straight year Texas has advanced individuals to the Final Four of either singles or doubles at the NCAA Championships.
* Jordan Spieth contending at Colonial in Fort Worth.
