Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks

The Lumberjacks managed to start the year on a 12-6 run. Losses came in three of the next four versus Grand Canyon, Cal Baptist and Tarleton State, though. Stephen F. Austin would then beat UTRGV before losses to TX-Arlington, Abilene Christian, Seattle and Utah Valley.

In their matchup versus Cal Baptist on Thursday, the Lumberjacks had a close call but everything worked out well. SFA scored 28 points in the first half, 23 in the second and 11 in overtime for a 62-60 win. Leading scorer Latrell Jossell put up 22 points with five steals and four rebounds.

Grand Canyon Antelopes

Over on the Lopes’ side, they lost just one of their first 18 games versus South Carolina. After another loss to Seattle, Grand Canyon beat Stephen F. Austin, TX-Arlington, Seattle, Utah Valley, Southern Utah, Utah Tech and Cal Baptist. Next came losses to Tarleton State and Abilene Christian, though.

Back on Thursday versus UTRGV, Grand Canyon started a little slowly on a 28-24 first-half edge. The Antelopes drilled the Vaqueros 44-19 the rest of the way however and took the blowout 72-43. Tyon Grant-Foster led the way on his 21 points, six rebounds and four assists.


I’m going to stay with the Lopes. In their latest outing versus a struggling UTRGV team, Grand Canyon shot very well (50 percent) alongside a 42-23 rebounding edge. It was a much-needed defensive performance after giving up 76 or more points in three straight games—even if it was versus a team with only six wins.

The last time these teams met up, the Antelopes secured a close road matchup 53-51 on January 25. Neither team shot well in that one (both below 34 percent) and there were 30 total turnovers (16 for the Lopes). I like this one to be more of a high-scoring affair, and it should be a fun one to watch. I like Grand Canyon to pull off the cover if they can minimize the mistakes this time.
