Blogger.com, the hosting site for this blog, was down from late Thursday night to Friday afternoon, thus preventing me from doing updates Thursday night.

Suffice it to say that the major story of the SEC tournament's opening day on Thursday was Auburn's upset of Florida, which under the single-elimination format, eliminates the Gators from conference-championship contention. The other Thursday winners were Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama. The SEC website's "Tournament Central" is available here, for following the remainder of the event.

Thursday night in the Pac 10, Arizona and Cal battled through 10 innings, with the host U of A prevailing, 2-1. The Wildcats' Kenzie Fowler and Golden Bears' Jolene Henderson both pitched complete games. Arizona needed a two-out, game-tying hit in the bottom of the seventh to force extra innings.
