It was quite a week last week in the world of college sports. Overall, it wasn't a very positive one. The biggest story splashed across people's screens was the story of Mike Rice, the Rutgers mens basketball coach, after a video emerged of him shoving, cursing at and throwing balls at his players during a practice this past season. He could also be seen calling them homophobic slurs.
For the first time in recent memory, Broken Bow will not have a senior baseball team this upcoming summer due to lack of numbers.
DYO President Mike Evans came to this executive decision Monday.
While this is a recent decision, the possibility of having a senior team this season was low.
Although there were great hopes that Christensen, one of the teamâ€™s top pitchers last season, wonâ€™t be ready by the time the season starts due to his injuries from the accident last summer.
