VSU women's basketball coach Kiley Hill might be the happiest man in Valdosta. After winning the Gulf South's East Division on Saturday, he probably should be.
Before his team leaves for Tupelo, Miss., and the GSC Tournament on Tuesday, the Blazer coach will host his radio show tonight from 7-8 p.m. at Moe's. All meals will be 50 percent off. Anyone who can't make it can listen to the show on 95.3 FM, The Hook.
The Blazers (21-5) have lost in the first round the past two seasons, but get a bye this year thanks to the division crown. Their first game is Thursday at 5:30 p.m. against the winner of Alabama-Huntsville (8-19) and Arkansas-Monticello.
Sunday's heavy rains washed away a jam-packed day of Blazer sports. The men's and women's tennis teams were forced to cancel home matches against West Florida. It was going to be the first meeting between the two men's teams since the Argonauts downed VSU for the 2004 National Championship.
The softball team also had to call off the final day of the South Region Crossover at Freedom Park. The Blazers had two games, but will have to wait to end their 12-game losing streak.
The baseball team also lost a chance to play on Sunday, as its game in Lakeland, Fla., against No. 1 Florida Southern was canceled. The Moccasins won Saturday's game on a walkoff home run in the 14th inning.
Neither baseball nor softball will be rescheduled, although tennis might try to play West Florida again when the Blazers travel to Pensacola, Fla., for matches in March.
