In the Lumberjacks’ 27-6 tournament victory Friday versus Nicholls, the top scorer for the team was guard Shannon Bogues with 27 points. Ty Charles also had a nice outing for Stephen F. Austin with 17 points and eight rebounds.
Southeastern Louisiana comes into this matchup with a 22-10 record on the season. The Lions were sitting at 13-10 back on January 31, but have since rattled off nine straight wins including Friday’s tourney victory.
In that win over Sam Houston State, Southeastern Louisiana guard Marlian Veal put up 29 points with seven assists. Guard Eddy Polanco also had a nice night for the Lions with 16 points and six rebounds with five assists.
The Lumberjacks are 4-0 ATS in their last four Saturday games and 4-0 ATS in their last four overall. Stephen F. Austin is also 6-1 ATS in their last seven versus the Southland and 4-1 ATS in their last five neutral-site games.
Meanwhile, the Lions are 4-1 ATS in their last five following an ATS win and 15-7 ATS in their last 22 overall. The under is 4-1 in SE Louisiana’s last five games following an ATS win and the over is 6-2 in the Lions’ last eight neutral-site games.
This should be a fun matchup between two trending teams. The lone time these two met was way back on December 28, as SE Louisiana took a 73-62 home win. Although I think this one has a chance at being a little closer, I like SE Louisiana just a bit more right now.
