Eckerd

Men

Coach: Tom Ryan (315-158, 17th season at Eckerd)

Last season: 21-9 (11-5 Sunshine State Conference)

Notable: Lance Kearse and Wayne Sears, who started all 30 games last season, have graduated. But the Tritons return five players who saw plenty of action last season. Junior G Alex Bodney started 29 games and averaged 9.4 points. Senior F Darrien Mack was the sixth man in 2011-12 and was second on the team with 12.2 ppg. Senior G Woody Taylor, senior F Walade Wade and junior G Josh Snodgrass all saw significant playing time last season. The Tritons seem to have a good mix of youth and experience that could get them over the 20-win mark again this season.

  1. Ryan Callahan encouraged by his return

    Blogs

    Captain Steven Stamkos wasn't the only key Lightning player to make a triumphant return Friday night against Nashville.

  2. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Friday's Rays-Orioles game

    The Heater

    RHP Alex Cobb hates to hear how he "battled through" or "grinded out" a start rather than just dominated, but that's kind of what he did Friday, allowing nine hits and a walk and being charged with two wild pitches but only three runs in earning his 12th win.

  3. Lightning's Steven Stamkos looks close to top form in first game since November

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — The wait felt like forever for Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, having gone 10 months without playing in a game.

    A scramble in front of the Lightning goal has Matthew Peca, far left, and Erik Cernak, middle, helping out goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy during the third period of a 3-1 win against the Predators. Vasilevskiy, who made 29 saves, was “exceptional,” coach Jon Cooper says.
  4. Rays journal: Alex Cobb may have pitched last game in Rays uniform (w/video)

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — RHP Alex Cobb pitched well enough to lead the Rays to an 8-3 win over the Orioles on Friday.

    Wilson Ramos gives thanks after hitting a grand slam during the second inning, putting the Rays up 4-0.
  5. Ww's Odessabeach makes run at Husker Magic stakes final

    Parimutuels

    ST. PETERSBURG — When Hurricane Irma blew through Florida earlier this month, Ww's Odessabeach remained in her comfort zone.
