The second (more extensive) weekend of play gets underway today in the annual Mary Nutter Classic. The tournament is played in Cathedral City, California, near Palm Springs.
Nearly half of the 35 teams playing this weekend are ranked nationally, including consensus No. 1 Florida State and No. 4/5 Oklahoma. Eight of the nine softball-fielding schools in the Pac 12 are playing this weekend in Cathedral City (the exception is Oregon, which was part of the Nutter's first weekend).
