Here are the remaining schedules for teams fighting for the final couple spots in the Southland Conference tournament (in order of standing right now)…
Lamar — @UTSA, @TAMUCC, Nicholls StateCombined record: 25-14McNeese State — @Nicholls State, SELA, @UCACombined record: 15-24Texas State — Northwestern State, UTSA, @SHSUCombined record: 20-19
Just by looking at it, McNeese has the easiest road into the tournament, playing teams with a combined record of 15-24, yet, two of its games are on the road. Lamar has the toughest schedule and could lose two out of its last three games.
So, it puts the pressure on Texas State. The Bobcats should be able to handle Northwestern State at home, but then the true test begins. Texas State will play UTSA and then travel to Huntsville.
The Bobcats just might have another meaningful game against Sam Houston State with its playoff life on the line. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
