🏀Wizards: The Wiz were eliminated last night with a Game 5 loss to the Joel Embiid-less Philadelphia 76ers. From enduring a COVID-19 outbreak to heating up at the end of the regular season, the Wizards’ season had it all. Can’t wait for more of the Bradley Beal-Russell Westbrook tandem next year (along with better defense and 3-point shooting, please).

🎓🥍🎾🥎College: Congrats to UVA for winning national championships in men’s lacrosse and women’s tennis singles over the long weekend. Now it’s JMU softball’s turn to fight for a natty in the WCWS. 

  • Their opponent today at 12 p.m. ET is No. 1 Oklahoma. It’s a tall task for JMU’s All-American pitcher Odicci Alexander to contain OU’s stacked offense, but expect her to throw strikeouts and do damage at the plate. The unseeded Dukes have nothing to lose.

⚾️Nationals: While the Nats beat the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday to end a five-game losing streak, they lost star pitcher Stephen Strasburg in the process. He exited the second inning and was subsequently placed back on the injured list with a neck strain, just 13 days after he left it. Sigh.
