Sam Houston is 1-3 after the Kats 6-3 loss to Houston Tuesday night. SHSU beat former Southland rival Texas State Sunday in the finale of the Bobcat Classic in San Marcos.

Louisiana-Monroe is 3-1 after hosting an opening-weekend tournament with Wake Forest and Alcorn State. The Warhawks opened the weekend with shutout wins over Wake Forest, 9-0, Friday and Alcorn State, 12-0, Saturday. ULM lost to Wake 11-4 in the first game of a Sunday doubleheader and closed the tourney with a 7-3 win over Alcorn.
