SWAC Tournament Schedule And Bracket

The SWAC Conference tournament will be held in Garland, Texas, starting on Wednesday and running through Saturday. Most projections have the winner of the SWAC tournament being one of the absolute worst seeds in the NCAA's, but that doesn't necessarily mean they can't pull a win out once they get there. 

The Texas Southern Tigers, hailing from Houston, are the #1 seed with a 18-11 mark, including a 16-2 run in conference. Led by senior Kevin Galloway, who almost never leaves the floor, the Tigers defense was the best in the SWAC. They'll open up against the #8 seed Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions, which went 7-23 on the season, with all 7 wins coming in-conference. The Tigers went 2-0 against them this season.

The tournament will play four straight days, with just a couple a games a day, before the Saturday championship game which likely decides who will be going to Akron for the NCAA play-in game. The schedule is as follows:

Wednesday:

#2 Jackson St. Tigers vs. #7 Prairie View A&M Panthers -- 12:30 PM
#1 Texas Southern vs. #8 Arkansas-Pine Bluff -- 8:00 PM

Thursday:

#3 Mississippi Valley St. Delta Devils vs. #6 Grambling Tigers -- 12:30 PM
#4 Alabama St. Hornets vs. #5 Alabama A&M Bruisers -- 8:00 PM

Friday:

Winner of JS/PVA&M vs. winner of MVST/GRA -- 2:30 PM 
Winner of TSU/ARK vs. winner of ASH/AA&M -- 8:00 PM
