Coach Brownlee and I previewed the final series of the regular season for WIU. Western hosts Oral Roberts in a home series starting today and going through Saturday. The Summit League Tournament starts up Wednesday, where the 4th seeded Leathernecks are most likely set to play Oral Roberts in the first round of the double elimination tournament in Tulsa. 


We also discussed the way Adam McGinnis has continued to excel this season, as he was named a Semifinalist for the Johnny Bench Award, given to the top catcher in the nation. McGinnis leads the Summit League in a number of categories, including batting average and on-base percentage. 


Here is my conversation with Coach Brownlee.
