The Best In Sports In 7 Days

Doctor S sez: Mississippi State or Ole Miss could win the SEC West. Or they could miss the SEC Tournament completely. Tight race, huh?

Thursday, May 19
College baseball, LSU at Mississippi State (6 p.m., Starkville, CSS, 105.9 FM): The Bulldogs probably need to win two games this weekend to lock up a trip to the SEC Tournament.

Friday, May 20
College baseball, Ole Miss at Arkansas (6:30 p.m., Fayetteville, Ark., CSS, 97.3 FM) The Rebels have little margin for error if they want to go to Hoover.

Saturday, May 21
College baseball, Rice at Southern Miss (1 p.m., Hattiesburg, 620 AM): The Golden Eagles have been struggling lately. Their timing is poor.

Sunday, May 22
College baseball, SWAC Tournament, championship, teams TBD (1 p.m., Shreveport, La., ESPNU): There's a good chance one of Mississippi's three teams will make it to the final.

Monday, May 23
NBA basketball, Western Conference finals, Dallas at Oklahoma City (8 p.m., ESPN): Will one of these teams end this series tonight with a sweep? Unlikely, but go Mavs.

Tuesday, May 24
NBA basketball, Eastern Conference finals, Chicago at Miami (7:30 p.m., TNT): If the Bulls keep playing like they did in Game 1, this series ends tonight.

Wednesday, May 25
College baseball, C-USA Tournament, teams TBD (9 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 4 p.m., 7:30 p.m.): Did Southern Miss qualify for this? If not, Trustmark Park will be mighty empty. ... SEC Tournament, teams TBD (9:30 a.m., 1 p.m, Hoover, Ala., CSS): If you make this tourney, there's an excellent chance you will be going to an NCAA Regional.

The Slate is compiled by Doctor S, who reminds you that if you can't play a sport then be one. Huh?
