- Drew Eubanks has an uphill battle ahead of him if he wants to make his way in the NBA. There is some good news for the former Oregon State center though. He’s already had workouts for the Lakers and Clippers, but now the Oklahoma City Thunder have indicated some interest in the Troutdale product. Cody Taylor of The Thunder Wire talked a bit more about it the other day.

- LSU’s baseball team was eliminated from the NCAA postseason by the Oregon State Beavers last weekend. In those games, OSU looked near unstoppable to most of us, including LSU coach Paul Mainieri. Mainieri spoke with a local news station down in Lousiana and stated that he would “be shocked if they (Oregon State) don’t win the national championship.”

- In other baseball topics of conversation, Zak Taylor has become a very important piece of the puzzle for the Beavs. But he’s had to wait his turn behind K.J. Harrison and Adlet Rutschman. Bob Lundeberg over at the Corvallis Gazette-Times had a nice little profile of the Beavs’ first baseman’s development over the last few years.

- Finally, in football news, remember Datrin Guyton? He was a receiver for the Beavs back in 2015 but was dismissed for an unspecified violation of team rules. Guyton caught 14 passes for 178 yards that year. He then went to Bowling Green State, where he had 31 receptions for 585 yards and two touchdowns last season. He was starting to get things back on track...but then he got arrested on a felony robbery charge and was subsequently dismissed from the team in Bowling Green. Not sure where his football career goes from here.
