Oh well...

Northwestern's season is over after falling to Tennessee 3-0 this afternoon. Abbott was dominant, and NU had no answer offensively.

Tune in tonight for a special 2-hour edition of the Sportsvoice from 7-9 Central on WNUR--live from Oklahoma City!

First Pitch Coming Up

Arizona just topped Washington 2-0 to force an if-necessary game this evening for a trip to the title series.

First pitch for NU-Tenn is set for about 2:45. Pregame is underway on 89.3 FM WNUR and

NU Lives to See Another Day

The 'Cats awake this morning on the heels of an offensive explosion and a dominant pitching performance by Eileen Canney in a 7-0 victory over Baylor on Elimination Saturday.

Now it's onto Sunday, where if the 'Cats can beat Monica Abbott and the Tennessee Volunteers twice, they will earn a second straight trip to the Championship Series. If they drop a game to the Volunteers, their season will be over.

It doesn't get much better than this, folks. Two great teams. Two great pitchers. Northwestern with their backs against the wall. Will Drohan have her team ready to pull off the impossible? Will Monica Abbott and her 683 strikeouts overwhelm the 'Cats? Will Purple Nation be celebrating again come Sunday night or will a disappointing 9-0 loss to Washington haunt NU throughout the offseason?

All these questions will be answered today on WNUR. Ray Garcia and Guy Benson get it all started with the pregame show at 1:45pm. If NU wins that game, they will play an if necessary game at either 5pm or 8pm, depending on the outcome of Washington-Arizona. Stay tuned to and for updates.
