Inside the Thomas Assembly Center, Tech could beat North Carolina. Take one step out and they’ll lose to Scotlandville High School

Teams in action were 2-2 last night.

Tulane lost at Tulsa 64-72. The Wave got a nice game from Caleb Daniels who had 20 points & 10 rebounds and a 14 points from Samir Sehic in the loss. Tulane falls to 4-23 this season and 0-15 in AAC play.

Louisiana Tech lost their first home conference game 79-90 to Marshall. Dequan Bracey (26), Amorie Archibald (18), Anothony Duruji (12) and JaColby Pemberton (10) were all in double figures for the Bulldogs but it wasn't enough. Louisiana Tech drops to 18-11 on the year and 8-8 in CUSA.

re: 2018-19 Season Long State of LA College Basketball Thread
Conference Tournament/Post Season Outlook:

LSU will be in the NCAAT but everyone else needs to win their conference tournaments to get in the field. Here is the outlook for each team in their conference tournament and beyond. This is just to give everyone an idea of the scenarios for all of the teams. I may have a few things wrong, especially regarding tie breaker scenarios, so feel free to point out anything I messed up.

LSU – Win at home against lowly Vanderbilt tomorrow and there will be a new banner in the PMAC next year. Also, a win would give the Tigers the #1 seed in the SEC Tournament giving them a double bye to the quarter finals on Friday. LSU is a lock to make the NCAA Tournament, the SECT will be about resume and seeding at this point.

Tulane – Finishes the season at home tomorrow night against Wichita State looking for an upset to avoid a winless conference slate. Hopefully, there’s some Senior Night magic in Fogelman tomorrow as there’s not much left for the Wave to play for this season. All 12 teams make the AAC Tournament and unfortunately the Wave have already locked up the #12 seed.

Louisiana Tech – The regular season slate is over and the Bulldogs have finished .500 in CUSA (9-9). 12 of the 14 teams in CUSA make their post season tournament and games being played tomorrow will tell the story as far as seeding goes. Louisiana Tech is firmly in the CUSAT, however there are currently 5 teams either 0.5 game ahead or 0.5 game behind the Bulldogs. I’m not sure what the multiple team tie breakers are, so we’ll find out a lot after tomorrow.

ULL – The top 4 seeds in the Sun Belt get byes in the tournament. A top 4 seed is out of the question but a win tomorrow would lock up the 5 seed for the Cajuns. The first round of the Sun Belt Tournament is played at campus sites so locking up 5 seed and guaranteeing that they play at home in the first round of the tournament will be what the Cajuns have on the line tomorrow night.

ULM – The loss last night was a tough one for ULM as I believe it guarantees they will not be able to be the 5 or 6 seed (host a first round game) and I don’t know how the tie breakers work but it might be possible they have not clinched a berth in the Sun Belt Tournament (a loss tomorrow and wins by South Alabama & Arkansas State would create a three way tie and the bottom of that tie would be out of the tournament). Either way ULM controls their own destiny as far as making the conference tourney and that starts and ends with getting a win tomorrow. (someone feel free to clarify on tiebreaking scenarios)

Southeastern – A win tomorrow would lock up the 3 seed in the Southland Tournament (they may have it locked up anyways, again if you have knowledge of tiebreakers feel free to clarify) and a bye to the quarterfinals. Guaranteeing the 3 would be big as they would be able to avoid Sam Houston State (15-2 in conference) until the Finals. After a slow start to conference, Southeastern is playing really good ball as they have won 4 in a row and 12 of their last 14.

UNO – The regular season is over for the Privateers who finished the season at 12-6 in the SLC. They are sitting in the 4th spot right now which would guarantee them a bye to the QF. I’m not sure about the tie breaker between UNO & Southeastern but either way both teams have guaranteed themselves byes in the conference tournament.

Northwestern State – The Demons are currently on the outside looking in at the SLC Tournament. I believe they can get in but they are going to need some help. Luckily for them they control part of the situation. SFA & Central Arkansas currently sit one game ahead in the standings. The Demons play UCA tomorrow and have to have a win. SFA plays the #1 team in the Southland, Sam Houston State, tomorrow. The last part of the equation is they need Southeastern to beat Nicholls tomorrow. The Demons aren’t dead, but they need a lot help and have to get a win tomorrow.

Nicholls – Nicholls sits in the same spot as Northwestern State. They need to same scenarios to play out with SFA & UCA combined with a win over Southeastern. Like the Demons, they aren’t buried, but need some help to get in the conference tournament.

McNeese – The Cowboys are drawing dead. They currently sit at 5-12 in conference play and there isn’t a scenario that gets them into the Southland Tournament.

Grambling – The Tigers currently sit in a 4 way tie for 3rd place in the SWAC. I have no idea how the tie breaker scenarios play out but they are guaranteed to be in the tournament and the outcome of the games tomorrow will tell the story.

Southern – As bad as a year as it has been for the Jags, a win tomorrow (or a Miss Valley State loss) would guarantee their spot in the SWAC Tournament. So the Jags are still playing for something on the final day of the regular season.
