The Texas Southern Tigers had locked up the SWAC Tournament title and are headed to the NCAA Tournament. Although they won the championship game over Southern University 62-58 they were already champions once they made the championship game, since Southern was ineligible for the NCAA's for academic reasons.
Texas Southern was led by Malcolm Riley who scored 18 points and had 10 rebounds. Madarious Gibbs added 12 points.
This makes back to back NCAA tournaments for the Tigers. Congratulations to TSU and good lick in the NCAA Tournament.
