SWAC BASKETBALL: MID TERM GRADES!!

Good morning folks, I hope that everyone has been blessed with the love of sports and the warth of God. Okay, Let’s get to it. As we move farther into college basketball season, many teams have made strides and put their stamps of what is expected to be a successful run for post season. As Arizona continues it’s winning ways, teams like LSU , MIZZOU among others are setting the trend as dark horses within their conferences. In the SWAC, Southern University continues to blow away competition following their lone loss on the road at Mississippi Valley State last Wednesday. The Jaguars have defeated Alabama A&M and Alabama State to reamain on top in the conference at 7-1. Calvin Godfrey and Malcolm Miller continue to lead the Jags in scoring and rebounding. Alabama State and Texas Southern are closely behind with two losses sitting at 5-2. The Hornets and Tigers meet up this weekend in Alabama for second place. Alabama A&M , Alcorn State and Praire View are sitting in third with a 4-3 record. The Bulldogs , Braves and Panthers are fighting to stay in the top half of the conference for seeding sakes.   Jackson State , which picked up a much needed win at home against Grambling to sit at 3-4 . UAPB took TSU to the limit in Houston sit AT 2-4. Mississippi Valley has gotten hot of late in a big win over Southern at home and a road win over Prairie View on the road. Against the Panthers, the Devils scored 51 points in the second half to come from behind to defeat the Panthers at Prairie View. At 2-4, the Devils look to make up ground when they host Grambling and Jackson State nthis weekend. Meanwhile Grambling State keeps making headlines as the Tigers losing streak in the SWAC continues nas they reamain winless at 0-6. The streak goes all the way back to the 2011-2012 season.
