Arkansas to open NCAA tournament with rematch
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas' baseball season has come full circle.
The Razorbacks will open the NCAA tournament Friday against Washington State, the same team Arkansas played in its first series of the season back in February. The Hogs swept three games against the Cougars by a combined five runs. Arkansas is seeded second in its four-team, double-elimination regional, which is hosted by Oklahoma. The Razorbacks also played Oklahoma during the regular season, beating the Sooners 8 to 7 in ten innings April 28th. Arkansas tied that game with two runs in the bottom of the ninth, then won it on a bases-loaded walk.
Daly to return to PGA Tour in Memphis
(AP) - John Daly's suspension on the PGA Tour is over, and the 2-time major champion plans to return in three weeks for the St. Jude Championship and U.S. Open qualifying.

He has played eight times overseas during his suspension, including a month in Europe, where he tied for second in the Italian Open.
