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
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.
