Before then they’ll be on the road for non-conference games today at 6 and Wednesday at 4 against Southeastern Louisiana.
The Lions are members of the Southland Conference. They’re 8-5, and among their losses are one against LSU and two against Louisiana-Monroe, which played strong against the Rebels twice in Oxford with one-run losses Feb. 25-26.
