LSC BASKETBALL
Lone Star Conference action starts this week with teams playing a double round robin league schedule, in which each team plays a home and away contest against each of the other teams to determine the LSC champion. The LSC champion will be the regular season winner determined by conference games, while the postseason tournament winner is designated as LSC Tournament Champion and earns the league’s automatic berth into the NCAA Championship. The top eight teams in the final conference standings qualify for the postseason tournament set for March 6-9 in Allen, Texas.
    
Only three teams remain undefeated after non-conference play including West Texas A&M on the men’s side, and Midwestern State and Texas A&M-Commerce on the women’s side.
    
The LSC men have a 34-16 overall record so far this season.  In the NCAA South Central Region, the men’s teams are currently 10-10 combined versus Heartland Conference teams and 3-1 opposed to the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.
    
The LSC women are 21-22 overall. The women’s squads are currently 9-6 combined versus Heartland teams, and 5-1 against the RMAC, which are the other conferences in the NCAA South Central Region.
