 ๐ŸŽ“๐ŸฅŽSoftball: Unseeded JMU softball hope to take their historic WCWS run into the championship series with a win in todayโ€™s elimination game against No. 1 Oklahoma at 4 p.m. ET. The Dukes already upset the Sooners once, whatโ€™s one more? Time to smash more homers and lay it all out there. 

๐Ÿ€Mystics: Although the Mystics lost a close 96โ€“93 battle to the Las Vegas Aces on Saturday, there were some positive takeaways: Myisha Hines-Allen delivered a double-double and Ariel Atkins chipped in a career-high 29 points. Natasha Cloud โ€” who dished out 11 assists โ€” said it best: โ€œWe're a team that once this clicks, we're a scary f---ing team...โ€ Energy.

  • The Minnesota Lynx come to town tomorrow, although former Mystic Aerial Powers is out with a hamstring injury. Tip-offโ€™s at 7 p.m. ET.

โšพ๏ธNationals: The Nats dropped a three-game series to the Philadelphia Phillies with yesterdayโ€™s 12โ€“6 loss, collapsing like the netting behind home plate. Womp.

โšฝ๏ธSpirit: The Spirit sweated it out in a 1โ€“1 draw with the Orlando Pride yesterday. Theyโ€™ll be back in action on June 19th against the Chicago Red Stars.
