SWAC MEN’S BASKETBALL: JAGS ARE JOGGING TO THE FINISH……

Good Morning, God is good….Okay, Let’s get to it. College basketball is approaching the 3rd quarter…Many teams are positioning themselves for tournament play. In the SWAC, Southern has done it’s homework and raced out to a 2 game lead over Alabama State and a 4 game lead over the other schools. The Jags sport a 9-1 conference record heading for a home date with the UAPB LIONS  and a rematch with the MVSU Delta Devils, a team that beat them earlier this season. Coach Roman Banks has done a wonderful job of getting the Jaguars back into the eyes of many faithful Jaguars fans. Tradition is what he intended to rebuild upon taking the job at Southern. With road games in Alabama next weekend, the Jags could be caught in two trap games. However, winning the regular season title only ganrantees a NIT spot. The NCAA tournament will have to be earned through Houston. Alabama State seems like a team that could give the Jags trouble. Coach Lewis Jackson’s Hornets have been playing great ball of late. AAMU has came on late with 2 big road wins. The Bulldogs play host to the Jags next Saturday night in Huntsville. PVAMU has struggled but regain some momentum with a big win over Texas Southern. The Tigers meanwhile has been tailspin for the last 4 games. They need a win badly and that could come when the struggling Jackson State Tigers and Grambling State visit Houston. Alcorn State gave GSU their first signature win in over 2 seasons with a 95-80 loss in Grambling the Tigers played well to break the 45 game lossing streak. MVSU has cooled down as of late with 2 key losses at home to the Alabama schools. The Delta Devils need a win but with a return trip to Baton Rouge to face the Southern Jags, it want be nice. Teams are starting to jockey for position heading into next month’s conference tournament. Southern has the early lead but in the SWAC anything could happen……..realsportsrealtalk…….
