Spotlighting Saturday’s conference champions

Southern

The SWAC doesn’t make a lot of noise often but when Southern defeated Texas Southern in the tournament semifinal, the Jaguars got everyone’s attention. Southern then went on to face Jackson State in the championship yesterday and gave itself even more momentum when Adrian Rodgers sunk a two-point tip shot to propel his team into the tournament.

Southern will surely have a low seed, but don’t be shocked if they put up a stronger fight than anticipated.
