Good morning, Ok….It’s SWAC Basketball season and we are about at the 3/4 point of the season. With only the top 8 teams qualifying for this years’ SWAC tournament, and the top 4 hosting the first round, it’s getting pretty sticky this time of the year. Texas Southern looks to repeat again as conference regular season champions however, Alcorn State Braves have been on a tear winning 7 straight games and is the hottest team in the SWAC as of late. The Braves fresh off a victory at UAPB is playing lights out. Coach Montiez Robinson has done a great job turning around a once proud program back into a contender. Robinson, in his third year has upgraded the roster with the likes of Reginald Johnson, Marquis Vance and A.J. Mosley to lead a well balance scoring machine. Johnson , Vance and Mosley average double figures each night. After a horrid start of the season the Braves seem to have found a rotation that has done wonders for Coach Robinson. Heading into this weekend’s slate, the Braves sit one game behind leader Texas Southern. With the Tigers taking a loss at Jackson State it made things more meaningful for the Braves. Southern University trails the Braves by 2 games followed by Jackson State which is trying to hold off PVAMU among others for the fourth seed. However, I have seen many thing s happen. Can Alcorn dethrone Mighty TSU? Stay tuned.

    Great article on the Men’s SWAC Basketball regular season race. However, I would just like to point out a few errors in your article. 1) The Alcorn Braves have won eight games in a row with their win over Arkansas Pine Bluff. 2). Head Coach Montiez Robinson is in his second year of coaching at Alcorn State. 3) Former Alcorn Head Coach Luther Riley recruited and then coached Marquis Vance and Reginal ‘Monsta’ Johnson at Alcorn, prior to Coach Montiez Robinson arriving on campus. Keep up the good work. SWAC basketball needs more exposure like this to increase attendances at games.
