Sports briefs for Thursday, April 3

NM tops Eastern softball by a run

GREENTOWN — The North Miami softball team’s first batter got on base via a passed ball and two batters later came around to score on another ball that got around the backstop. That was the only run of the game as North Miami topped Eastern 1-0 Wednesday in the Comets’ opener.

The game settled into a pitching duel where Eastern’s Abby Oyler fanned 10 batters and allowed just one hit. North Miami’s Josie Wood fanned 11 and also gave up just one hit, a second-inning single to Quinlyn Hochstedler.

“Pitching was good, our defense was good other than the first batter of the game,” Eastern coach Jerry Haines said. “The batters weren’t quite as far along at this point in the season as the pitchers were and it showed.”

Kat wrestling club fares well at state

Also for the Kats, Aulani Davis, Garrett Taylor, Aiden Altman, Kyler Harlow and Amari Barbary had runner-up showings, C.J. Washburn and Jankobe Sparger had third-place finishes and Justin Brantley, Kymani Howard and Dashawn Barbary had fourth-place finishes.

SMU, Minnesota set for NIT title game

NEW YORK (AP) — With two famous names on the sideline, the NIT championship has a New York feel.

One coach is a rising young star, the other is in the twilight of his Hall of Fame career. Both with boyhood ties to the Big Apple.

Richard Pitino leads Minnesota into the title game Thursday night against 73-year-old Larry Brown and SMU at Madison Square Garden, a building both basketball junkies revere.

Born in Brooklyn and raised in nearby Long Beach, Brown grew up going to games at the Garden and coached the resident New York Knicks to a 23-59 record during the 2005-06 season.
