Rain washes out GreenJackets again

For the third straight day, the Augusta GreenJackets will attempt to begin the second half of the South Atlantic League season today.

Wednesday's scheduled game at Savannah was postponed by rain, just as Tuesday's was.

The teams hope to play at doubleheader this afternoon at 5:30 to make up the Tuesday rainout. Wednesday's rainout will be made up when the Sand Gnats visit Augusta on July 15-17.

ACC leaders remain silent after talks

Atlantic Coast Conference leaders met for three hours in Raleigh, N.C., about whether to add Miami, Syracuse and Boston College to the league, but gave no timetable for another discussion.

The ACC presidents and chancellors, who have the final say on expansion, have met for eight hours in three separate teleconferences without coming to a consensus on adding the three Big East schools.

Seven of the nine presidents and chancellors must vote in favor of expansion.

The three Big East schools must each pay a $1 million exit fee. The penalty doubles after June 30.

  • A matchup of Duke and Michigan State, two of college basketball's last four national champions, highlights the nine-game schedule for this season's ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

    The nine games will be played Dec. 1-3 at eight college campuses and one neutral site. Duke will play at Michigan State on Dec. 3. In other games, also Dec. 3, Georgia Tech is at Duke and Clemson at Purdue.
