North Greenville baseball making turnaround under sophomore coach Henson

North Greenville University baseball's remarkable early season turnaround from a year ago continued Wednesday as the Crusaders rallied to defeat visiting Anderson 8-4.

NGU, coming off a 10-win season in Travis Henson's first year as head coach in 2009, ran its record to 8-2 this season. Henson came to NGU and the college ranks after eight seasons at nearby Landrum High School, which netted three state titles and six upper state titles during his tenure.

Henson's Landrum teams averaged 23 wins per season over the course of his eight years there.

In other local collegiate baseball:

Furman fell to 0-4 with a 7-5 loss to Charleston Southern Tuesday. The Paladins' scheduled game against Charlotte Wednesday was canceled due to weather. Furman will host Western Illinois, a late addition to the 2010 schedule, for three games this weekend with a doubleheader beginning at 1 p.m. Saturday and the finale at 1 p.m. Sunday at Furman's Latham Stadium.

Clemson's 3-0 start includes an 8-5 win over Furman on Feb. 21. The Tigers are ranked 13th in the Examiner's baseball poll.

In nearby Spartanburg, USC Upstate completed a three-game sweep of defending Colonial Athletic Association champion Georgia State Wednesday, rallying for seven runs in the seventh inning and an 8-5 win at USC Upstate's Harley Park. The Spartans are 3-2 on the season.
