LSC Roundup 2-25

LSC Showcase to debut Sunday on Fox Sports Southwest - LSC Office
The first installment of the Lone Star Conference Showcase is set to air on Fox Sports Southwest Sunday, Feb. 26 at 1 p.m.  The 30-minute magazine-style television show is part of the league’s partnership with Fox Southwest, which also includes television advertising and live web streaming.
“We are tremendously excited about the debut of Lone Star Conference Showcase and the great exposure it will bring to the conference and its member schools,” said LSC Commissioner Stan Wagnon.  “The LSC has a proud past and we think it has an even brighter future, and this partnership with Fox Sports Southwest gives us an excellent opportunity to share the good news about our conference throughout the region.”
The showcase is set up to contain previews of upcoming league events, highlights from recent conference action and features on LSC student-athletes, coaches and communities.  The first edition hosted by FS Southwest’s Dana Larson will talk about the LSC and its purpose, before diving into next week’s men’s and women’s basketball championship. A closer look at the tournament schedule, plus players and teams to watch will wrap up the segment.
Next, the spotlight shifts to the City of Allen and the Allen Event Center, which is the new home of the LSC Basketball Championship tournament.  The show concludes with a rundown of the spring sports, along with details on the Lone Star Football Festival at Cowboys Stadium, which made a successful debut last September and returns in 2012 as a two-day, six-game event.  In addition to the original programming on Feb. 26, the show will re-air on Feb. 27 at 3:30 p.m. and March 17. The next LSC Showcase is set to air during the week of May 21.

Texas A&M University-Commerce senior forward Desmond King and junior forward Andrew Davis are among the 15 players named Capital One Division II Academic All-Americans for men's basketball, announced by the Collegiate Sports Information Directors of America. King was named a first team Academic All-American, with Davis picking up third-team honors.

"I'm incredibly proud of both Desmond and Andrew as they continue to excel both on the court as well as the classroom," said head coach Sam Walker. "They have been leaders on this team all season long and are proving to be excellent role models that you can be successful in both facets as a student-athlete. They deserve to have this recognition."

A&M-Commerce was the only school in the country to have a pair of players named to the Academic All-American team. Voting was done by sports information professionals across the country as only players who were first team all-district selections were eligible for the national ballot.
