The Southland Conference Tournament will take place in Katy, Texas this year, and quite a few Texas teams will have big says in the action. The Sam Houston St. Bearkats are the high mark with the #3 seed, and they're joined in the tourney by the Texas St. Bobcats, the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks, and the UTSA Roadrunners.
The tournament will start on Wednesday, and the concluding game will take place on Saturday at 3 PM CST on ESPN2. While there are no teams directly from Houston in the field, it's a good chance to get out and see some decent college basketball teams put their tournament lives on the line, and all you have to do is stomach the drive to Katy. The event will take place at the Leonard E. Merell Center.

#2 Northwestern St. Demons vs. #7 UTSA -- 12 PM
#3 Sam Houston St. vs. #6 Stephen F. Austin -- 2:30 PM
