Texas A&M vs. SE Louisiana Preview/GameThread

New, 3 comments

Texas A&M welcomes SE Louisiana (0-1) to the friendly confines and attempts to improve to 2-0 (7:00pm; SEC Network+; WatchESPN)

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Put simply, the Aggies looked great in their home opener on Friday. Sure, it's USC Upstate... but we played some really pretty basketball.

Let's keep the train moving and take a look at tonight's opponent - the SE Louisiana Lions

The Lions hail from the Southland conference

And the Southland, home to thirteen squads spread across the ARK-LA-TEX area, is slightly more reputable than the home of our prior opponents (the Atlantic Sun). Slightly.

SELA was picked to finish seventh in the 2015-2016 pre-season poll.

An all-conference team with five players?

Yes. The Southland executes their all-conference teams rationally, picking five players each for the first and second team. Zay Jackson, a senior shooting guard (15.4 PPG; 36.6 MPG; 4.6 APG), nabbed a second team selection for the Lions.

So we should guard Jackson, then?

Yes, we should. Jackson dropped 19 points in the Lions season-opening 90-77 loss at TCU, and he was the only SELA player to reach double digits.

This one should be relatively comfortable.
