No. 11 Texas Longhorns softball had a good run this season. Last week, that run ended at the hands of the No. 7 Oklahoma State Cowboys in the NCAA Super Regional round, 247Sports reports.
From 247Sports: “For the second straight postseason, Texas softball went on the road and extended the home team to a deciding Game 3 in an NCAA Super Regional with a berth in the Women’s College World Series on the line before coming up just short. ... Sunday’s Game 3 turned in the bottom of the fifth inning. Texas sophomore pitcher Shea O’Leary, who had been outstanding through four scoreless innings, giving up just one hit while throwing 49 pitches, hit the first two batters she faced in the fifth inning. Both of those batters ended up scoring the game’s only two runs after Oklahoma State was able to scratch out a couple of singles to bring those runners home.”

NEW EXTRA POINTS:— Matt Brown (@MattBrownEP) May 26, 2021
On the balance, I think it's a good thing that more states are passing NIL bills. But a closer examination shows that not every bill is equally permissive, and some reasonable-sounding restrictions could end up being significant. https://t.co/TLBk4KInGS
