Two and out for Millsaps in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Tournament. That’s a shocker for the people in the purple. The Majors, ranked No. 1 in one NCAA Division III poll, may still get a D-III Tournament bid — and maybe they’ll have regained their mojo by then. But is that possible after what just happened? The Majors, playing in their hometown if not on their home field (Smith-Wills Stadium is the SCAC site) lost their tourney opener Thursday to a Centre team that had won just nine games all year. Then Millsaps fell to Hendrix on Friday afternoon, losing back-to-back games for the first time all season. It would be a shame for such a grand season to end in such a fizzling fashion. All the Majors can do now is sit and wait to see if a D-III bid comes their way. Stomachs are churning already.
