Softball faces a win-or-go home situation for the third straight day of the TCCAA Tournament as they will look to advance against #4 Motlow State at 4:00 ET.
The Lady Cougars come into this matchup with the confidence and excitement of Monday's Auburn Collake walk-off home run which propelled the Lady Cougars into the next round. The Lady Bucks of Motlow State are coming off of an 8-0 loss to #1 Chattanooga State earlier in the day.
Cleveland State played a four-game set with Motlow State on March 15 and 16 at home and lost the series 1-3. However, they have won eight of their last eleven games and are a much stronger team than when the two clashed earlier in the season.
The winner of this game will play either Vol State, Walters State, or Dyersburg State Wednesday at 4:00 ET.
