The AFP on WREL: Heating up

AFP editor Chris Graham talks sports with WREL-1450AM’s “Online with Jim Bresnahan.”

The segment begins with a review of the 9-7 Virginia win over Maryland in Monday’s NCAA men’s lacrosse national championship. How did the ‘Hoos rebound from a five-loss regular season to win the national title? Chris credits legendary UVa. coach Dom Starsia for retooling midseason.

The attention then shifts to college baseball. Virginia is the top national seed in the NCAA Tournament that begins this weekend. How will the Cavs and JMU, the #3 seed in the Chapel Hill Regional, fare in the Big Dance?

We wrap with a discussion of the surprise resigation of Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel.
