USF hires women's golf coach

USF named Tiffany Prats women's golf coach Monday.

She has seven years of collegiate coaching experience, most recently as Marshall's women's coach (2014-16).

She was on the University of Miami's golf team from 2003-06, earning a bachelor's degree in sports administration, and played professionally on the Suncoast Tour (2008-09), the LPGA Futures Tour (2009) and was a member of the Royal Canadian Golf Association (2008).

A two-time all-state selection, she lost only one match for Williston High School.

BASKETBALL: Middle Tennessee coach Kermit Davis agreed to an eight-year extension. The Blue Raiders upset Michigan State in the NCAA Tournament. … Tim Jankovich, 57, was named SMU coach, replacing Larry Brown. He was head-coach-in-waiting.

FOOTBALL: Georgia coach Kirby Smart said sophomore defensive end Jonathan Ledbetter will undergo "intensified education, counseling, and medical assistance" after his second alcohol-related arrest since March. … Drunken driving charges were dropped against Miami sophomore Mark Walton, who finished spring practice atop the depth chart at running back. The team didn't say if an indefinite suspension would be lifted.

TRACK: UF sophomore Arman Hall and former Gators Tony McQuay and Novlene Williams-Mills are headed to Rio, pushing Florida's track and field contingent to 13 athletes slated to compete. Williams qualified for Jamaica.

    TAMPA

    No. 21 USF ran its record to 4-0 Thursday night with some payback against Temple, a 43-7 trouncing, no contest, as if anyone cares, at least judging by the paltry crowd at Raymond James Stadium. Where was everybody?

    BALTIMORE — As the Rays reunited Thursday with Tim Beckham for the first time since he was dealt July 31 to Baltimore, it became very clear that not everything in assessing the trade is as it appears.

    The Rays still talk about having a shot to make the playoffs. But recognizing and correcting mistakes will help them next year, such as Mallex Smith trying to steal third in the first. "Those are the little things we've got to find how to eliminate real quick," manager Kevin Cash said.
