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.
