ROUND ROCK, Texas — Both Taylor Holiday and Scott Gorgen finished what they started Saturday to help the Anteaters win the game Coach Dave Serrano called the biggest in the program's history. But despite a 3-1 triumph over storied Texas, the No. 4 national seed, in the winner's bracket game of the NCAA Regional at the Dell Diamond, Serrano and some of his players were quick to point out that nothing is finished quite yet.

A wealthy 16-year-old boy who killed four people and injured several others in a Texas drunk-driving accident will receive treatment at an Orange County rehabilitation facility but serve no prison time, according to news reports.

His case made national headlines after a psychologist called by the defense testified that Couch suffered from "affluenza," meaning his upbringing instilled in him a sense of entitlement that led to irresponsible choices, as reported in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
