LU Closes Regular Season at Nicholls, Looking for Tourney Berth

BEAUMONT, Texas – Lamar University heads to Thibodaux, La., Thursday looking for a shot at the conference season. With 30 games already in the books, the Cardinals 2022-23 season comes down to the final game. LU (9-21/5-12 SLC) enters the week in a two-way tie for ninth place in the conference standings, just on the outside looking in. For Big Red to advance to the eight-team Southland Conference tournament next week in Lake Charles, two things need to happen. First the Cardinals have to take care of business Thursday against Nicholls, then LU will need Northwestern State to beat UIW – a game that will be played in Natchitoches, La. If both of those things happen, Beaumont’s Cardinals will be in the tournament, and San Antonio’s Cardinals will be left out.Read More
