|MTSU men's golf wins USF Invitational|
MTSU continued its hot start to the spring golf season by successfully defending its title at the Ron Smith/University of South Florida Invitational Sunday afternoon.
In basketball it's usually a good thing to have a big lineup. Sometimes, however, it's necessary to go smaller. Oakland, for example, faced a Red Bank team that featured a guard-heavy lineup. Oakland coach Randy King, therefore, decided that he needed to go smaller to match up with the Lions. He countered Red Bank's guard-heavy lineup by replacing post player Kit Carlton early with guard D'Juan Epps. The move work as Oakland's guards dominated en route to a 91-52 win over visiting Red Bank in the sectional round Monday. With the win, Oakland clinched its first state tournament berth since 1996, and King picked up his 500th career win. Oakland will play Powell (25-9) at MTSU's Murphy Center 8:45 p.m. Thursday, March 15, in the first round.
