Action will reset tonight in Katy as the Southland Conference Tourney reconvenes after a first day that mostly played out the way the seeds said they should. Outside of Texas-San Antonio’s startling comeback on Northwestern State, that is. Things will kick off at 6 P.M. as the Roadrunners of UTSA take on the Sam Houston St. Bearkats, who were never really challenged in an easy defeat of Stephen F. Austin.
The nightcap at 8:30 will feature the top-seeded McNeese St. Cowboys taking on the #4 seed Texas St. Bobcats. Both teams won nailbiters last night that involved them coming back from decent-sized leads by their opponents. It looks like things have set up pretty well for a Sam Houston-McNeese final on Saturday, but that’s why they play the games. Here’s the schedule and bracket so far:
2 Northwestern St. Demons 96 vs. 7 UTSA Roadrunners 97
3 Sam Houston St. BearKats 61vs.
6 Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks 45
1 McNeese St. Cowboys 61 vs.
8 Nicholls St. Colonels 54
4 Texas St Bobcats 72 vs.
5 Southeastern Louisiana LIons 68
7 UTSA Roadrunners vs. 3 Sam Houston St. BearKats — 6 PM
1 McNeese St. Cowboys vs. 4 Texas St. Bobcats — 8:30 PM
Championship — 3 PM
Both games will be broadcast on SLC TV, which is available to stream online through the conference’s website.
