OMAHA, Neb. — Colin Moran says he’s just finding holes. He also thinks, sometimes, it’s luck. And on college baseball’s largest stage, Moran’s just a “little more relaxed,” and letting the game come to him. However it’s happening, Moran’s response to the pressure and spotlight of being the highest drafted college player in the College World Series is paying dividends for the MLB’s sixth overall draft pick and his Tar Heel teammates in their quest for the program’s first national title.

Each player on LSU’s bench stood with her arms wrapped around a teammate’s waist during every timeout of Friday’s volleyball match in Carmichael Arena.
