Gambit Sports Weekend!
April 11-13

Posted By on Fri, Apr 11, 2014 at 1:00 PM

With New Orleans celebrating French Quarter Fest all weekend, don't forget this is also a busy weekend on the sports front.



The Pelicans are without forward Anthony Davis for the remaining four games this season.

NEW ORLEANS PELICANS (32-46)


Friday, April 11 - Pelicans @ Oklahoma City Thunder • 7 p.m. • Cheseapeake Energy Arena (FSNO)

Saturday, April 12 - Pelicans @ Houston Rockets • 7 p.m. • Toyota Center (FSNO)


Prediction - who wins? Pelicans are without Anthony Davis (back) and Eric Gordon (knee) for the final four games of the year. That doesn't help their cause this weekend as they drop both games this weekend.


NEW ORLEANS ZEPHYRS (1-7)


Friday, April 11 - Zephyrs @ Oklahoma City Redhawks 7:05 p.m.

Saturday, April 12 - Zephyrs @ Oklahoma City Redhawks 7:05 p.m.

Sunday, April 13 - Zephyrs @ Oklahoma City Redhawks 2:05 p.m


Prediction - who wins? The Zephyrs are struggling out of the gate this season and those struggles continue. I look for them to drop two games this weekend.





LSU BASEBALL
(25-8-1) - #16


Friday, April 11 - Arkansas @ LSU • 7 p.m. • Alex Box Stadium, Baton Rouge (CST)

Saturday, April 12 - Arkansas @ LSU • 12 p.m. • Alex Box Stadium, Baton Rouge (ESPN2)

Sunday, April 13 - Arkansas @ LSU • 1 p.m. • Alex Box Stadium, Baton Rouge (CST)



LSU head baseball coach Paul Mainieri leads the 16th ranked Tigers vs Arkansas this weekend.

  • LSU head baseball coach Paul Mainieri leads the 16th ranked Tigers vs Arkansas this weekend.


Prediction - who wins? The Tigers are on a 4 game winning streak, after sweeping Mississippi State and defeating Lamar Wednesday night. I'll take the Tigers for another sweep this weekend. The weather is getting warmer and it appears the LSU offense is too.


TULANE BASEBALL (14-17)


Friday, April 11 - Rice @ Tulane • 6:30 p.m.
Turchin Stadium
Saturday, April 12 - Rice @ Tulane • 2 p.m.
Turchin Stadium
Sunday, April 13 - Rice @ Tulane • 1 p.m. Turchin Stadium


Prediction - who wins? The Rice Owls are coming off a win at Texas Wednesday night, while the Green Wave are coming off a 5-1 defeat to Southeastern Louisiana on Wednesday. Tulane also announced that coach Rick Jones will miss the remainder of the season due to an illness. Things are not looking good for the Wave and especially this weekend. They'll get swept by the Owls.


UNO BASEBALL (10-20)


Friday, April 11 - Privateers @ Lamar • 6:30 p.m. • Houston, Texas

Saturday, April 12 - Privateers @ Lamar • 2 p.m. • Houston, Texas

Sunday, April 13 - Privateers @ Lamar • 1 p.m. • Houston, Texas


Prediction - who wins? The Privateers are 10 games under .500 and Lamar was shut out Wednesday night at LSU. However, UNO surprised the #2 ranked University of Louisiana Lafayette Wednesday night winning that game 8-7 in Lafayette. Will that win give the Privateers some momentum this weekend? I feel it will. Look for UNO to take two out of three in Houston.


LOYOLA BASEBALL (21-20)


Friday, April 11 - Wolfpack vs Southern Wesleyan University • 4 p.m. • Segnette Field, Westwego

Saturday, April 12 - Wolfpack vs Southern Wesleyan University • 1 p.m. • Segnette Field, Westwego


Prediction - who wins? The Warriors of Southern Wesleyan have lost seven straight games. After this weekend, it will be nine. I look for the Wolfpack to win both games this weekend.


DELGADO (27-9)


Friday, April 11 - Dolphins vs Meridian Community College • 1 p.m. • Kirch-Rooney Stadium, Lakeview

Saturday, April 12 - Dolphins vs Meridian Community College • 1 p.m. • Kirsch Rooney Stadium, Lakeview


Prediction - who wins? The Dolphins are celebrating a "baseball family reunion" this weekend and also it being recognized as "college of the month" by NJCAA Review. The celebrations continue because the Dolphins win both games this weekend.
