The Stephen F Austin Lumberjacks caught fire from behind the arc on Saturday night to separate itself from a stingy Texas A&M-Corpus Christi squad and claim the outright Southland Conference title with a 58-49 win over the Islanders at William R. Johnson Coliseum.
SFA (26-3, 16-2 SLC) tied the school record for wins in the Division I era with its 26th of the season and will enter the Southland Conference Tournament as the No. 1 overall seed with a pair of byes into the semifinals.
The ‘Jacks will play an opponent to be determined on Friday at 5:00 p.m. at the Leonard E. Merrell Center.
