Alabama uses seven pitchers to shutout Middle Tennessee

After an offensive explosion over the weekend, Alabama’s pitching staff was the story on Tuesday in its 4-0 win against Middle Tennessee.  Alabama sent out seven total pitchers, four of which didn’t see the mound during the weekend series against Valparaiso. It allowed just four hits, while striking out eight Blue Raiders. Its first two pitchers were lefty Garret Rukes and right-handed pitcher Brock Love.


Women's basketball honors Kay Yow in the Play4Kay game

Pink shoes squeaked up and down the court as fans, donning pink T-shirts, passionately waved pink shakers with every Alabama free throw, rebound and three-pointer.  Alabama women’s basketball hosted its yearly Power of Pink/Play4Kay game for breast cancer on Sunday afternoon. Play4Kay is a fundraising initiative started 11 years ago by the Kay Yow Cancer Fund in honor of the former North Carolina State women’s basketball coach who passed away from breast cancer in 2009.
