⚽️Soccer: And then there were four. Whittled down from a field of 48, the women’s soccer Final Four action kicks off today at 6 p.m. ET on ESPN2. In the first semi, No. 1 seed undefeated Florida State will take on Virginia, a traditional soccer powerhouse who upset their way to the College Cup semis.

  • In the late game, No. 2 North Carolina faces No. 11 Santa Clara at 8:30 p.m. ET. Santa Clara is averaging 2.60 goals per game while North Carolina is only giving up an average of .316 goals per game. Let’s see if defense can win championships.

🥎Softball: After the 2020 season was canceled, postseason softball is hitting different this year. Conference tournaments are in full swing, with the 64-team tournament Selection Show set for Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN2. But add some softball to your Saturday plans, because a whole slate of conference title games are airing on ESPN networks. HYFR.

⚾️Baseball: On Tuesday, Nevada redshirt junior Tyler Bosetti homered in his ninth (!!!) straight game, setting an NCAA Division I record for most consecutive games with a homerun. And he made it look easy.

⛳️Golf: Sadly, it’s the NCAA; you know not all news can be good. The Baton Rouge, Louisiana women’s golf regional was abruptly canceled yesterday due to the course not being “playable at a championship level.” Uh, not too sure about that. Of the 18 teams scheduled to compete, the top six will advance without a single hole of golf played. Brutal.
