We're Dancing: Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks

Stephenaustin_large_medium

The Southland has been settled.  Nacogdoches is going nuts for their Lumberjacks from Stephen F. Austin University.  SFA sealed their first NCAA bid in the history of their program with a 68-57 victory over Texas-San Antonio.  SFA got 20 points from Matt Kingsley and as a team the Lumberjacks knocked down 54 percent of their shots.

We'll see where the #1 team from the Southland is headed after the jump.

Location: Nacogdoches, TX

Enrollment: 10,647

Record: 24-7 (13-3)

Leading Scorers: Matt Kingsley (16.1 ppg), Josh Alexander (14.5 ppg)

What to know:

  • SFA does it with defense.  They hold opponents to an average of 56.0 ppg.  Granted, they have the 242nd best strength of schedule so...ah, yeah.
  • The Lumberjacks don't like leaving home.  SFA is 13-0 when playing in their own gym and 10-7 when on the road or neutral territory.  No friendly confines for these Texas woodsmen.

Projection:  SFA has won 8 straight but will most likely hit a wall when they face a 3 seed as a 14 seed.
